    Stunning book. I didn’t expect to get so invested in it to be honest, it’s not my usual kind of read. But I couldn’t put it down. Super short chapters give a sense of urgency to the story and it really draws you in. Just beautiful....

    Moonrise is quite simply a heartbreaking read. I have only ever read Crossan's ya dystopian books (Breathe and Resist) which I really enjoyed and hoped this would be another winner. It was.Moonrise follows Joe Moon who travels to Texas from New York to see his older brother, Ed, who is on Death Row....
