After Amy is struck by lightning, she and her silent friend, Moo, are able to communicate telepathically, travel through time, and face a child-eating witch.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 September #2
Ten-year-old Amy is an unusual girl who simply loves experimenting, and her scientist parents (camped out at a construction site to protest environmental destruction) have trouble discouraging that in any way. When Amy is struck by lightning, she gains the power to hear the thoughts of her nonverbal friend, nicknamed Moo (who suffered brain damage in an accident when she was younger), and to read other people's emotions. As if that weren't enough excitement, the pair winds up traveling 30 years back in time to escape the witch of the woods and save their little corner of the world. This book is a whirlwind, but the zaniness works beautifully. Humorous dialogue and descriptions keep readers on their toes, and the relationships between characters ring true, even in the oddest of circumstances. In between the silliness, much wisdom is imparted about friendship, family, and finding the courage to tackle the strangeness life has to offer. Kids will take pleasure in navigating Amy and Moo's wacky world. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
