Launch Party for Natalie Lloyd’s OVER the MOON!

March 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Star Line Books is over the moon to host the launch party for OVER the MOON by the beloved Natalie Lloyd! Please make plans to join us on Saturday, March 30th beginning at 2 p.m. to celebrate the release. Much fun and magic are guaranteed, so we’ll look forward to seeing you then!

Twelve-year-old Mallie knows better than to dream. In Coal Top, you live the story you’re given. That means boys toil in the mines and girls work as servants for rich people. Mallie can’t stomach the idea of that kind of life, but what choice does she have? Her family is counting on her wages to survive.

It wasn’t always this way. Before the Dust came, the people of Coal Top could weave starlight into cloth. If you wore these dreaming clothes to sleep, you’d wake up with the courage to seek adventure . . . or the peace to heal a broken heart.

So when Mallie is selected for a dangerous competition in which daring (and ideally, orphaned) children train flying horses, she jumps at the chance. Maybe she’ll change her story. Maybe she’ll even find the magic she needs to dream again.

But the situation proves even more sinister than Mallie realizes, especially when Mallie uncovers a dangerous mystery at the heart of Coal Top’s struggles — a mystery that the charismatic Mortimer Good will do anything to protect.

Natalie Lloyd is the New York Times Bestselling author of novels for young (and young at heart) readers.

Her first novel, A Snicker of Magic, was an ALA Notable Book, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, a top 10 Kids Indie Next Pick and an NPR, iBooks and Parents Magazine best book of the year for children. The book has been optioned for television by Sony Tristar. Natalie’s other novels include The Key to Extraordinary (Scholastic 2016), The Problim Children series (HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen 2017), and Over the Moon (coming from Scholastic in 2019). These novels have won accolades from Entertainment Weekly, Junior Library Guild, SIBA, Amazon and Bank Street College of Education, among others.

Natalie writes in the shadows beside a sunny window in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She loves adventuring with her husband, Justin, and their dogs, Biscuit and Samson.
