The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen

Emily Benedict has traveled to her mom’s childhood home in Mullaby, North Carolina to answer questions about her mother who has passed away.  She lives with her grandfather who she has never met . The town does not welcome her and she soon realizes it’s not going to be easy to figure out what happened that caused her mom to leave and never come back.  Filled with magic, misfits, and far reaching secrets, The Girl Who Chased the Moon is an enjoyable read.  I am definitely going to check out Sarah Addison Allen’s other books, including The Peach Keeper and The Sugar Queen.  Both received rave reviews when they were first published.
