All the Blue Moons at the Wallace Hotel by Phoebe Stone

Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

Four paw prints. Fiona remembers what life was like when she was younger. Her father was a successful art dealer, her mother was an artist, her little sister was curious about everything, they had two homes, her parents hosted fancy parties for important people in the art world, and her father always took her to her ballet classes. She loved when her father took her to ballet classes. But her father is gone now and everything has changed. Her mother sold their winter home, kept the summer home but sold everything in it, closed up most of the summer home except for the living room (where they sleep in separate parts of the room) and the kitchen. The worst part was losing her ballet lessons. She didn’t just lose an activity she loved; she lost something special she shared with her father. Her one regret is that her father never saw her in a ballet recital. The only thing that hasn’t changed is her sister’s curiosity. Unfortunately, it’s this curiosity that could ruin Fiona’s chance to have her one dream come true. Through humor and understanding, Fiona’s story teaches that even an ordinary life that seems sad can be wonderful when shared with the people you love the most.
