George H. Crowder

Author George H. Crowderabout this book: WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:

• "[The Book of Moon] takes turns being poignant, funny, sentimental, but it always has you in a strong grip with its multi-dimensional characters and the author's craftsmanship with words. While the main character of the story is a teenage boy, his narrative will speak to many whose teenage years are well behind them."

• "An emotional adventure with a heartwarming conclusion."

• "…smartly written, with a distinctively wry narrative style and a host of memorable characters."

• "This sweet and funny coming-of-age story is a great read for teen and adult readers--both male and female."

• "A gem of a book that tugs at the heart!"

• "15-year-old Moon Landing relates to the biblical story of Job. God, if there is one, seems to be inflicting him with one misfortune after another—and Moon's troubles make a really good story."

• "I cannot tell you-- well, I will try!-- how much I enjoyed this book, and the author's delicious sense of humour. The wordsmithing is something of great beauty."

• "A wildly original portrait of a young Californian with the unlikely name of Moon Landing struggling to come to terms with everything life throws at him: his parents' divorce; his suddenly liberated mother's adventures with younger men; Moon and his older brother discovering girls and exploring the palette of California religions."
