Looking for a sunny summer read?
Maggie Vaults Over the Moon lets the sunshine in.
The young adult novel about a courageous farm girl, Maggie Steele, who overcomes tragedy and rises to new heights as a pole-vaulter, has brightened the hearts of readers young and old.
Margaret Wheatley, 16, of Florida calls Maggie, “That one in a thousand books you will carry with you forever.”
Taylor Millsap, 14, of Illinois adds, “I’ve probably read it more than 20 times. I will never get tired of reading it over and over, again and again.”
Sports Writer Christine Brennan of USA TODAY, writes, “Girls who play sports and the coaches and families who support them will thoroughly enjoy this warm, uplifting story.”
KIRKUS REVIEWS: “[The] novel exudes sweetness… it feels as if it takes place in another era, as it lacks the dark edge seen in other popular YA [young adult] stories.”
MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW: “An inspirational pick for young adult fiction collections.”
CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL, AND GUIDEPOSTS’ Nancy Julien Kopp: “Heartwarming and realistic, this book is a winner.”
Coming Soon on Audiobook!
Maggie Vaults Over the Moon will soon be performed by six-time Audie finalist, Tavia Gilbert.
Gilbert, who has narrated more than 250 multi-cast and single-voice audiobooks, is eager to add Maggie to her list of great stories.
“I’m very proud indeed to be connected to a project that celebrates the best qualities of the wonderful character, Maggie, the healthy and realistic way she copes with grief and challenge, and her development as an athlete and a mature, grounded young woman,” she says.
“This is a very special story, and I look forward to bringing it to listening audiences.”
