Honey Moon has a sleepover with her friends, and she wants to show them her mother’s prized necklace. After taking it out if its hiding place, in a book, she shows it off to all of her friends and lets them try it on. The next day, she realizes that the necklace is gone. Her mother would absolutely kill her if she lost her prized necklace, and so she must do everything in her power to find it before her mom notices. With the help of Shiver, the owner of a new popsicle shop, she goes on a mission to find out who stole the necklace. Along the way, she learns lessons about lying and forgiveness.
I definitely have to read more books in the Honey Moon series, it is just so good! Honey is a strong-willed young girl with loving parents and an annoying brother, and she lives in the Halloween town of Sleepy Hollow. She is a fairly normal young girl, but her town is far from normal.
This book is definitely a good read for elementary schoolers and middle schoolers. I personally was a big reader at that age and felt sad that there were no long books made for people my age. This story is about 200 pages, which is long enough to feel satisfying for young readers but not long enough to be too intimidating. The subject matter is appropriate for kids of that age, and the moral of the story is definitely an important lesson for them.
The pacing of the story is excellent and it will definitely engage young readers. The words are simple enough for young readers to understand, but the story isn’t so basic that they will become bored. This book even discusses healthy eating, because the Shiver store has low-sugar all-natural popsicles that can be bought from a real-life company.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a sweet fantasy story with important morals, or for anyone who is looking for a new story for young readers.
I received an advanced copy of this book, and this is my voluntary review.
Overall Rating: 5/5
