On the other side of the wall there is a dark secret. And the devil. And the Moon Man. And the Motherland doesn’t want anyone to know. But Standish Treadwell, who has different-colored eyes, who “can’t read, can’t write, Standish Treadwell isn’t bright,” sees things differently than the rest of the “train-track thinkers.” So when Standish and his only friend and neighbor, Hector, make their way to the other side of the wall, they see what the Motherland has been hiding. And it’s big.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Startlingly original, sophisticated and moving, Maggot Moon is out of this world.” The Sunday Times (UK)
“Gardner does a masterful job of portraying Standish’s dyslexia through the linguistic swerves of his narration, and although the ending is pure heartbreak, she leaves readers with a hopeful message about the power of one boy to stand up to evil.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“This is alt-history second; first, it is an eerie, commanding drama.” Booklist (starred review)
