The Moonlight Man

'ALA Notable Children’s Book Booklist Editors’ Choice School Library Journal Best Book of the Year NCTE Teachers’ Choice Notable Children’s Trade Book  “Stunningly written.” —Kirkus Reviews   “There’s been little in young adult fiction with this kind of plain intensity. . . . Miss Fox writes with wit and candor about painful change and growth. Her language is exquisitely controlled, reaching for meaning in the patterns and pauses of ordinary conversation, often in words of one syllable.” —The New York Times Book Review   “A cause for celebration . . . Fox’s subtle use of language and unique storytelling gifts create a world so complete and so rich that the reader hates to leave it. At one point, Catherine reflects that her father ‘seemed about to lead her into a dance to music she had never heard.’ This story, too, is music as we only rarely hear it.” —Publishers Weekly  Praise for Paula Fox “The greatest writer of her generation.” —Jonathan Franzen   “Fox has always been adept at writing apparently simple stories which on closer examination prove to explore the essential meaning of relationships . . . and to illuminate our understanding of the human condition.” —School Library Journal   “One of America’s most talented writers.” —Publishers Weekly  '
