"What possible comfort could any words have?" ~ 80%
Seventeen-year-old Joe hasn't seen his brother in ten years. Why not? Because Ed is on death row. Regardless of what people think and whether Ed is guilty or innocent, does not stop Joe from spending the last month with his brother.
I will probably be in the minority here, but Moonrise was close to being deemed DNF (Did Not Finish). The writing did not help me empathize with either brother or his situation. I expected more from a novel focusing on death and forgiveness. Ah well.
Happy Pub Day, Sarah Crossan! Moonrise is now available.
