    Maddie (Heart Full Of Books)

    All of the characters in this felt so strong and unique, even though you were only reading about them in around 150 word bursts! The plot really worked with the verse form, and the shift between past and present events was well managed. ...

    Gosh this book has worn out my poor heart. My nerves are frazzled but it was brilliant AND devastating. In this story the narrator chronicles the harrowing count down (as the brother) of a young man on death row. As a result it gives a refreshing and provocative perspective that allows...

    Amazing!Once again, Sarah Crossan smashes my heart into tiny pieces. If you've ever had any doubts at all about how very wrong the death sentence is, read this book. And cry. Sarah Crossan's message comes across loud and clear - it's obviously something she feels passionate about - but...

    (3.5 stars) Sarah Crossan's books never fail to move me and Moonrise was no exception. I found that the verse form resulted in some beautifully constructed images and added to the poignancy at just the right moments, forcing me to dwell on the idea of the idea of the death sentence and...
