Between the Moon and Paul McCartney
Between the moon and Paul McCartney is a middle-grade, historical fiction WIP about Cat, a thirteen-year-old girl who moves to Tennessee in the summer of 1969. Although she would like to remain invisible, as usual, she finds it increasingly difficult. She befriends an African American girl and a girl from a neighboring “hippie” commune. The three embark upon a dangerous journey to find Cat’s brother who is missing-in-action in Vietnam. Cat’s journey to self-discovery is juxtaposed to the journey to the moon. The moon is a symbol of the quiet strength she discovers as she encounters racism and the struggles and joys of growing up in a turbulent, but exciting time.
