APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this magnificent young adult novel, Standish Treadwell lives in the Motherland, an absolute and uncompromising country that will stop at nothing to be the first to land on the moon. The regime does not approve of young Standish; he is impure, he is dyslexic, and he challenges them. Having lost his friend Hector, Standish joins a few fellow misfits and his grandfather to stand up against the government’s oppression. Award-winning author Sally Gardner writes powerfully and evocatively about how Standish perseveres against innumerable hardships in a dystopian world where little is free and much is harder than it ought to be. This enhanced edition of Maggot Moon includes video interviews with the author, animated pages and more.
