AlienatedAbout the book:

Esther wants to earn a hug or a kiss from her reserved and ultra-superstitious mother.  The gesture will prove that Ma loves her.  Or will it?

It’s the beginning of the Great Depression and ten-year-old Esther’s father has lost his job. A move from an apartment in Chicago to a farm in Wisconsin seems like a good idea, and in many ways it’s the beginning of the happiest time in Esther’s life, even if the farmhouse is rickety and has no indoor plumbing. But it’s also a challenging time, and the challenges are made all the harder by Ma’s superstitions, which have such a powerful impact on the family’s daily life.

Esther has always admired Ma’s ability to read signs and navigate the treacherous waters of superstitions. But when Ma’s beliefs threaten Esther’s relationship with her new best friend, Esther begins to question just how valid superstitions really are and how much of a part–if any–she wants them to play in her own life.

What the Moon Said is published by G.P. Putnam Sons.

About Gayle:


Gayle Rosengren grew up in Chicago, and later moved to Wisconsin.  She always loved books, so a position in youth services at a public library in Illinois was a perfect fit.  The move to Wisconsin meant leaving that library behind, but it led to a job in the reference library of a publishing house and eventually to a job as a copy editor. Her long-held  dream was to be a children’s writer because books had brought so much joy and understanding to her own childhood.  She writes full time now from her home in Madison
