The Last of the Moon Girls Book Review:

A novel of secrets, memory, family, and forgiveness by the bestselling author of When Never Comes. Lizzy Moon never wanted Moon Girl Farm. Eight years ago, she left the land that nine generations of gifted healers had tended, determined to distance herself from the whispers about her family's strange legacy. But when her beloved grandmother Althea dies, Lizzy must return and face the tragedy still hanging over the farm's withered lavender fields: the unsolved murders of two young girls, and the cruel accusations that followed Althea to her grave. Lizzy wants nothing more than to sell the farm and return to her life in New York, until she discovers a journal Althea left for her--a Book of Remembrances meant to help Lizzy embrace her own special gifts. When she reconnects with Andrew Greyson, one of the few in town who believed in Althea's innocence, she resolves to clear her grandmother's name. But to do so, she'll have to decide if she can accept her legacy and whether to follow in the footsteps of all the Moon women who came before her.

Girls in the Moon Book Review:

Everyone in Phoebe Ferris’s life tells a different version of the truth. Her mother, Meg, ex-rock star and professional question evader, shares only the end of the story—the post-fame calm that Phoebe’s always known. Her sister Luna, indie rock darling of Brooklyn, preaches a stormy truth of her own making, selectively ignoring the facts she doesn’t like. And her father, Kieran, the co-founder of Meg’s beloved band, hasn’t said anything at all since he stopped calling three years ago. But Phoebe, a budding poet in search of an identity to call her own, is tired of half-truths and vague explanations. When she visits Luna in New York, she’s determined to find out how she fits in to this family of storytellers, and maybe even to continue her own tale—the one with the musician boy she’s been secretly writing for months. This soul-searching, authentic debut weaves together Phoebe’s story with scenes from the romance between Meg and Kieran that started it all—leaving behind a heartfelt reflection on family, fame, and finding your own way.

The Last Moon Book Review:

On May 8, 1902, Mount Pelée on the West Indies island of Martinique near the seaport town of Saint-Pierre erupted in a cloud of gas and fire in one of the most awesome and destructive pyrotechnic displays ever offered by nature. Four minutes later, thirty thousand citizens lay dead or dying and the town was engulfed in flames. Mother Nature was not entirely to blame for this disaster. In truth, the real culprits in this real-life story were the rather more deplorable traits found in human nature. Then, like now, if not for the dishonesty and corruption of officials who placed politics, greed, and racial intolerance above the welfare of the people, human injustice, loss of lives, and immeasurable suffering could have been avoided. The Last Moon remains 95 percent true to historical facts and personal testimonies. The main characters are either composites of real individuals who lived in Martinique prior to the eruption or actual people who influenced the turn of events. The Creole language, tidal waves, lava and mudflows, volcanic eruptions, foreign ships, deadly reptiles and insects, rich topography, and sequence of events portrayed in the novel are all genuine and based on fact.

The Moon Sisters Book Review:

This mesmerizing coming-of-age novel, with its sheen of near-magical realism, is a moving tale of family and the power of stories. After their mother's probable suicide, sisters Olivia and Jazz take steps to move on with their lives. Jazz, logical and forward-thinking, decides to get a new job, but spirited, strong-willed Olivia—who can see sounds, taste words, and smell sights—is determined to travel to the remote setting of their mother's unfinished novel to lay her spirit properly to rest. Already resentful of Olivia’s foolish quest and her family’s insistence upon her involvement, Jazz is further aggravated when they run into trouble along the way and Olivia latches to a worldly train-hopper who warns he shouldn’t be trusted. As they near their destination, the tension builds between the two sisters, each hiding something from the other, until they are finally forced to face everything between them and decide what is really important.

Cate Weelah was born in Jupiter's moon Europa. When she was 8 years old, her father Steban decided to return to Earth with his wife and their two step-daughters, Victoria and Cate, and never went back. Steban was one of the creators of the Aurean Shield and one of the most famous scientists of the world. In Earth, the ozone layer had vanished and the only way to survive was to cover the entire planet with the Shield. While in her teens, Cate was in an accident, and the North American Alliance or NAA tried to blame it on her. That was the day she realized she was different - an Alliafied. The whole world became aware of it as well, thus she went into hiding, either in Foxstone, Manhattan, or just in space. People avoided her, and she avoided them. either in Foxstone, Manhattan, or just in space. Cate went into hiding and remained relegated to a solitary, apathetic life beneath her metal shield. And that was how her days became gray or dark purple as sometimes was the sky above her. Victoria believed so much in the cause-she wanted a better world, a better Alliance-that generally got lost in the consequences. She would unconditionally stand by Cate. She was an Alliafied as well, and also didn't understand what it meant. But that was until they met the Phelaries: Kanio and Nnox. The Phelaries believed humans were not to be trusted, always disrespecting their own promises, and setting their own planet on a path of decay; yet they wanted to learn about them and what relationships were, and about Cate... because she belonged with them."We are all unique in different ways, but we are all the same."

When the Moon Was Ours Book Review:

Winner of the 2016 Tiptree Award! Longlisted for the 2016 National Book Award for Young People's Literature Stonewall Book Award Honor “McLemore’s second novel is such a lush surprising fable, you half expect birds to fly out of the pages... McLemore uses the supernatural to remind us that the body’s need to speak its truth is primal and profound, and that the connection between two people is no more anyone’s business than why the dish ran away with the spoon.” --Jeff Giles, New York Times Book Review Anna-Marie McLemore’s debut novel The Weight of Feathers was greeted with rave reviews, a YALSA Morris Award nomination, and spots on multiple “Best YA Novels” lists. Now, McLemore delivers a second stunning and utterly romantic novel, again tinged with magic. To everyone who knows them, best friends Miel and Sam are as strange as they are inseparable. Roses grow out of Miel’s wrist, and rumors say that she spilled out of a water tower when she was five. Sam is known for the moons he paints and hangs in the trees and for how little anyone knows about his life before he and his mother moved to town. But as odd as everyone considers Miel and Sam, even they stay away from the Bonner girls, four beautiful sisters rumored to be witches. Now they want the roses that grow from Miel’s skin, convinced that their scent can make anyone fall in love. And they’re willing to use every secret Miel has fought to protect to make sure she gives them up. Atmospheric, dynamic, and packed with gorgeous prose, When the Moon was Ours is another winner from this talented author.

The Wishing Tide Book Review:

From the acclaimed author of When Never Comes comes a novel about the pull of the past and the power of love. As offseason begins on the Outer Banks, a storm makes landfall, and three unlikely strangers are drawn together… Five years ago, Lane Kramer moved to Starry Point, North Carolina, certain the quaint island village was the place to start anew. Now the owner of a charming seaside inn, she’s set aside her dreams of being a novelist and of finding love again. When English professor Michael Forrester appears on Lane’s doorstep in the middle of a storm, he claims he’s only seeking a quiet place to write his book. Yet he seems eerily familiar with the island, leaving Lane wondering if he is quite what he appears. Meanwhile, Mary Quinn has become a common sight, appearing each morning on the dunes behind the inn, to stare wistfully out to sea. Lane is surprised to find a friendship developing with the older woman, who possesses a unique brand of wisdom, despite her tenuous grip on reality. As Lane slowly unravels Mary’s story and a fragile relationship between Lane and Michael blooms, Lane realizes the three share a common bond. But when a decades-old secret suddenly casts its shadow over them, Lane must choose between protecting her heart and fighting for the life—and the love—she wants. Conversation Guide Included
