Flower Moon is a book that is about friendship, family, and adventure. It is a great book and everyone can enjoy it. Tally, the protagonist, has a twin, Tempest. They did everything together and Tally always thought that were exactly the same. But they weren’t. Once Tempest finds a new hobby, she likes everything about science, technology, and building inventions instead of following Tally around on adventures.
One day Tempest is doing a science presentation in front of the class and Tally has to bring something up to her, but when she’s about to hand her the thing that she needed Tally felt a pressure, stopping her from coming close to her sister. As she gets closer the more pressure she feels, and there’s a chattering her teeth and in her ears there’s a hard drumming. She wonders what is this and why can’t I come close to my sister?
Once they get home, she can still feel the pressure, and the twins find out that they are going to their grandfather’s carnival for a few weeks for their birthday. When they get to the carnival, Tally tries to come closer to her sister, but with each day it just gets worse. Along the way, they find out a secret about why their mother and her twin went separate ways and left each other.
Do Tally and Tempest find a way to come close to each other without feeling this pressure? Do Tally and Tempest split up, like they discover mother and aunt? Read this outstanding book to find out.
This book is one of the best books that I have ever read! I think that everyone should read it because it is for all ages. It is well written and is so moving — it is just outstanding. I love this book so much! I chose to review this book because I think that everyone should read it and that they will love it.
