9780889952126: When Night Eats the Moon (Northern Lights Young Novels)

Holly feels rejected. Her cool, remote mother has dumped the thirteen-year-old on an aunt and uncle she barely knows, at a farm in southern England. Holly takes her flute to her aunt and uncle's old barn, and the notes of her instrument set off a mysterious hum from the back of the building. Perhaps she shouldn't have gone to investigate the sounds. Maybe she shouldn't have moved the pile of broken-down farm implements that blocked her path. But how else was she going to get that ancient-looking door open? Besides, somehow Holly can't help herself.

About the Author:

The author of the powerful young adult fantasy novel, When Night Eats the Moon, is Joanne Findon, Celtic scholar and university lecturer. She has had a fascination for Stonehenge since she first saw photographs of it as a child. "I have returned [to Stonehenge a number of times, but my last trip was the most powerful because I walked there from the town of Amesbury. . . . Even with the fence around it, this monument is still a powerful sight."

From Booklist:

Holly doesn't understand why her mother is so hostile to her flute playing. Nor is it easy for her to deal with being in England with relatives while her parents are home in British Columbia deciding if they'll stay together. She's especially disappointed by her long-anticipated visit to Stonehenge: everything is behind barbed wire and it's too touristy. But flute music and some pots that hold bits of time take Holly back to Stonehenge, 600 B.C., where the local people, who are being threatened by Celtic invaders, think Holly is the savior who has been foreseen by the runes. Although a historical note admits that the time frame has been tinkered with, the story itself will capture the imaginations of children who like time travel or historical fiction. Unlike some time-travel stories, the devices here make sense, and Findon does a particularly good job explaining how the ancient history has affected Holly and her mother's relationship. A solid read. Ilene Cooper
