The Moon Children

A young person’s book about two neighbors- eleven-year-old Billy Ray and an adopted Romanian girl who form a wonderful friendship. She is keeping a Moon Journal, cataloging the phases of the moon to keep alive a secret memory that, eventually, Billy is the first to discover. Although he has Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and struggles with many things that typical kids take for granted, Billy’s curiosity and warmth intrigue Natasha, and the two children develop a friendship that gives them the strength and courage to reveal their deepest secrets and to reach for their dreams.
