Reviews

Praise for Outrun the Moon * "Full of beautiful turns of phrase, lessons in Chinese customs and superstitions, and a refreshing protagonist representing intersectional diversity, this is a must-read for followers of historical fiction . . . powerful, evocative, and thought-provoking."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Lee creates characters full of depth and nuance that seem historically accurate but still relatable to today's teens . . . A diverse, engaging historical fiction that should not be missed."--School Library Journal

"Mercy's narrative is flecked with witty puns, pithy wisdom from her fortune-telling mother, aphorisms from her favorite business book, and her obsession with bad-luck number four, all of which provide meaningful insight into both her character and her culture. While slipping in plenty of meaty historical context, particularly about the discrimination facing Chinese immigrants at the time, Lee tells a resoundingly warmhearted story about community arising amidst earth-shattering disaster."--Booklist

"Mercy is a splendid narrator; her grit and humor makes the steady flow of racism she encounters even more jarring. Historical fiction fans are in for a real treat."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Lee brings an awareness of a (perhaps) lesser known time, place, and immigration issue. Mercy has one adventure after another; dramatic situations that she creates by leaping right into action. Despite her impulsiveness, Mercy is a very believable heroine who is sure to inspire readers to keep following their dreams."--VOYA "[A]n original exploration of a time and place not often depicted in historical fiction."--Publishers Weekly

"Stacey Lee is an incredible voice in historical fiction, but she may have outdone even herself in her recent Outrun the Moon."--Bustle.com "Stacey Lee's second novel weaves in compelling topics including class inequality, fall-out from natural disaster, and the drive of a 'bossy girl.' A historical fiction that features a fierce female protagonist."--TeenVogue.com "Immersive and riveting. Mercy Wong had my heart from page one."--Sabaa Tahir, New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes "A fantastic read! Emotional, entertaining, and bewitching as it brings to life San Francisco in 1906."--Cynthia Kadohata, author of the Newbery Award-winning Kira-Kira and the National Book Award-winning The Thing About Luck
