From the Carnegie Medal Award Winning author, Sarah Crossan, comes another poignant novel in verse; Moonrise.
Joe Moon is on his way to Texas to visit his older brother Ed.
Ed is in prison.
Ed is on death row...for murder.
Joe was 7 when his brother was arrested and he was convinced his brother couldn't have done it, but now that 10 years have passed a lot has changed and with an execution looming, Joe isn't quite sure what to think or feel.
Moonrise is a great read to open conversations about the criminal justice system, death row, and what's truly fair in the world. This novel in verse is a quick read that touches on some very serious subjects but which is a perfect entry into any number of current events.
