Everyone in Phoebe Ferris’s life tells a different version of the truth. Her mother, Meg, ex–rock star and professional question evader, shares only the end of the story—the post-fame calm that Phoebe’s always known. Her sister, Luna, indie-rock darling of Brooklyn, preaches a stormy truth of her own making, selectively ignoring the facts she doesn’t like. And her father, Kieran, the cofounder of Meg’s beloved band, hasn’t said anything at all since he stopped calling three years ago.

But Phoebe, a budding poet in search of an identity to call her own, is tired of half-truths and vague explanations. When she visits Luna in New York, she’s determined to find out how she fits in to this family of storytellers, and to maybe even continue her own tale—the one with the musician boy she’s been secretly writing for months. Told in alternating chapters, Phoebe’s first adventure flows as the story of Meg and Kieran’s romance ebbs, leaving behind only a time-worn, precious pearl of truth about her family’s past—and leaving Phoebe to take a leap into her own unknown future.

Why We’re Waiting On It

We love books that look at what it’s like growing up in a place that doesn’t let you truly shine – and how to get around that. We hope that GIRLS IN THE MOON will teach us – and everyone who reads it – to live their best life. Plus, this book mixes music and poetry, and we are very excited to see what this entails!

  1. That cover is super pretty, and the blurb sounds really intriguing! I’m surprised this is the first time I’m hearing of this book–I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for news/reviews of it in the future!

    Thank you so so much for sharing! Here’s my Weekly Wishlist, if you’re interested in checking it out. No pressure or worries at all though if you’re not! Happy book-ing to you in the near future, and happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate) to you and yours!
