That it is never too late to change the future and that high school sins can be forgiven—these are wonderful messages, but Allen's warm characters and quirky setting are what will completely open readers' hearts to this story. Nothing in it disappoints. Fans of Allen's Garden Spells will snap this up.
Library Journal (starred review)

By sprinkling just enough magic into the narrative to keep things lively...(color-changing wallpaper, mysterious lights)...Allen charts the spiraling inter-generational stories, bringing everything together in an unexpected way.
Publisher's Weekly

Allen's third novel is another winner set in a pitch-perfect enchanted town. Her believable magic is the ideal contrast to her recurring themes of forgiveness and moving forward. An ode to spring's rejuvenation, this book serves up hard Southern honesty at the heart of a sweet candy

Stacey Hayman Library Journal (Starred Review)

A dusting of magic, the aroma of sugary cakes swirling through the breeze, and a girl who unwittingly brings change to a town of misfits makes for a sweet summer story filled with hope and forgiveness. The Girl who Chased the Moon flirts with the supernatural while the light tinkling of a charm bracelet sounds in the night.
