Historical, YA

Review: Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee

4 stars.

Outrun the Moon cover (link to Goodreads)

I read this one because of a very high recommendation on Twitter, even though historical fiction isn’t something I gravitate toward. It follows a Chinese American teenage girl living in San Francisco. She is determined to become a business woman and manages to get herself admitted to a very exclusive (and white) girls’ boarding school. She’s living there when the earthquake of 1906 hits, and she helps her classmates and others survive during the aftermath. I enjoyed it.
