  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 June #1
    *Starred Review* Many years ago the Montgomery family was involved in the fracturing of a "great fate," which has passed through subsequent generations as either an incredible talent or curse. Unfortunately, Blue Montgomery was dealt the fate of always losing, and being left with Grandma Eve for the summer in minuscule Murky Branch, Georgia, feels like his greatest loss yet. Meanwhile, Tumble Wilson—Lily's self-chosen hero name—is also put out by her family's recent move to Murky Branch, but she's determined to make the best of it by helping Blue break his curse, like a true hero would. As the Montgomery clan descends upon Grandma Eve's in preparation for the blood-red moon—a once-in-a-lifetime chance to change their fate—Blue and Tumble forge a tight friendship and come to a deeper understanding of themselves. Beasley (Circus Mirandus, 2015) wisely reins in the colorful Montgomerys, ensuring that the story stays firmly focused on Blue's and Tumble's personal journeys. Their adventure into the nearby Okefenokee Swamp is lightly brushed with folkloric fantasy, and while there, choice emerges as a powerful theme. Reminiscent of Ingrid Law's Savvy books, Beasley's sophomore novel is a spirited yarn that shines through its rich characters, evocative writing, and enchanted premise. This will effortlessly ensnare the reader who plucks it from the shelf. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
