THE MOON AND MORE
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
Not many authors write with as much heart as Dessen. That being said, this is not her strongest offering. It’s a sweet premise with likable characters, and prior fans might not be disappointed — though they won’t be surprised, either.
It’s summertime and Emaline is busy working for the family business, getting ready for college and hanging out with her longtime boyfriend, Luke. Living year-round in a beach town tends to get pretty monotonous, but her world is shaken by the arrival of her biological father, half-brother — and a new boy. Where does this all leave her and Luke? (VIKING, Jun., 435 pp., $19.99, ISBN: 9780670785605, HC, 12 & Up)
