What the Moon Saw
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
Fourteen year old Clara Luna has had an uneasy feeling lately. She has strange dreams and wonders if her soul is searching for something. Though it's a surprise when her grandparents, who live in a tiny village in Mexico, write to her and ask her to spend the summer with them, her parents think it's a good idea for her to go. She has never met them and her father hasn't had contact with them since he ran away as a teenager to make a better life for himself in the United States.
Clara's grandmother is a respected healer known throughout the area. As the summer progresses, it seems as if Clara herself has the same gift, and she becomes more comfortable with her abilities and feels a happiness and satisfaction she has not experienced previously. When it comes time for Clara to leave, will she be able to go home to a life in the suburbs and still feel at peace?
