The Moon Over High Street by Natalie Babbitt
Scholastic, March 2012 When his grandmother hurts herself, Joe is sent to stay with his aunt for the summer. Though he won't admit it, living with his aunt is pretty perfect, from pancakes for breakfast to the girl who lives across the street. But when an a local millionaire decides he wants to adopt Joe and make him the heir to his fortune, Joe will have to make a life-changing decision. The Moon over High Street, though a slender novel, holds within it some of the important lessons and realizations everyone faces. A great companion to Pie for readers interested in fun, 50s & 60s set summer vacation reads.
