TEXT ☆ Keeping the Moon Ó Sarah Dessen

While her mother aerobics ueen Kiki Sparks spends the summer touring Europe fifteen year old Colie Sparks is stuck in sleepy Colby North Carolina But she's not complaining For one thing her Aunt Mira is a sweet laid back eccentric; for another no I just finished re reading this book I first read it a few years back when I was 14 so I've been waiting a while to re read this book and give it a proper review I thought that it might be hard for me to get back into since I'd already read it and was worried that I wouldn't like it as much as I did when I was younger But I found myself just as interested as I was the first time Laughing at the same parts anticipating the same things and loving all the characters Colie is so real and Dessen is great at capturing the teenage voice uick overview Colie has a hard time making friends since she's never really had any Moving around when she was younger and being overwieght didn't help the situation Now a few years later and after losing a considerable amount of weight everyone at school still hates her Her mother who has also lost weight is a world famous workout goddess and is going on tour around Europe This leaves Colie to stay in Colby for the summer with her aunt Mira Her weird atrtistic type aunt that she barely knows and that is ridiculed by the rest of the small town Throughout the summer Colie makes friends with the two girls working at the Last Chance Isabel and Morgan and Norman the weird but sweet hippie ish guy who lives in Mira's downstairs She finds the strength to finally let it go and realizes that she always had it in her to be the person she always hoped she was This book will always have a special place in my heart because it was my first Sarah Dessen book and the book that got me into reading in the first place It was easy for me to relate to Colie The feeling that what others say and think about you are what define you I loved the fact that although Colie lost the weight it didn't mean that she automatically got the confidence that other thin people have She learns that it all depends on us Sometimes it takes someone on the outside to believe in us though until we actually believe it ourselves One of my all time favorites and definitely set the bar for the rest of the young adult books that I've read Funny sweet and real What could you ask for
