Meet Standish Treadwell. He has two different colored eyes. He canít read well. He canít write well. He isnít considered to be very bright. But after his parents were taken from him, Standish starts seeing things in a whole new way. With help from his friend Hector, his world begins to brighten. Although it may not be much, Standish finds hope in his grandfather and the Moon Man for the future. In hopes of discovering whatís being hidden by the Motherland, Standish and Hector venture to the other side of wall. What they find will blow you away.
An absolutely stunning read. I defy anyone to read this and finish with dry eyes.
If you read Maggot Moon let us know what you think. Hate it? Love it? Ambivalent? Weirded out? I would love to hear a teenís point of view of this book.
