A Cool Moonlight


My Rating: 4/5

Author: Angela Johnson

Born with a rare skin condition causing her skin to be very sensitive to sunlight, Lila does not even remember the sun. Kept inside from the harsh sun rays, Lila is homeschooled and plays outside only at night. There, she plays with her two friends, Alyssa and Elizabeth, who promise to help her feel the warmth of the sun.

This is a very short read, but an absolutely beautiful and charming story. It is hard to tell whether this is a children’s book or a YA. I would more classify it is a YA; even though the main character in the book is much younger than the reader, only being eight years old, the subject and themes seem more mature than a typical children’s chapter book.

For the super anal grammar freaks, A Cool Moonlight may drive you up the walls given that no names or words are capitalized.

I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a unique YA quick read.
