Moonrise by Sarah Crossan

'They think I hurt someone.
But I didn't. You hear?
Coz people are gonna be telling you
all kinds of lies.
I need you to know the truth.'

From one-time winner and two-time Carnegie Medal shortlisted author Sarah Crossan, this poignant, stirring, huge-hearted novel asks big questions. What value do you place on life? What can you forgive? And just how do you say goodbye?

As expected from Sarah Crossan this book was beautiful and thoughtful and made me think. This is written in verse and done so beautifully that it just hooks you in from the first page and is one of those books that begs to be read in one sitting. I found myself completely drawn into the story of the brothers and it made my heart ache as I went through the rollercoaster ride of emotions with them.
