I was lucky enough to read an earlier version of GIRLS IN THE MOON, and it was such a treat. From the first pages, it was immediately evident that this is a very special book. It just made me feel really, really cool. Like I should learn to play the guitar or paint my fingernails electric blue or something. I can liken it to the first time I watched ALMOST FAMOUS.
I love Phoebe and Luna and Meg and I want to be friends with all of them. (In fact, I kind of feel like I am.)
My favorite thing was how this book doesn’t revolve entirely around romance (although there are definitely swoon-worthy bits!). It revolves around a family: the truths they keep from each other, the stories they tell. The relationships felt so real and heartbreaking and lovely, and I really couldn’t get enough of them.
And New York! If you love New York, you will love this book!
So yeah, it was fantastic, and I can’t wait for it to make a big splash this November.
