Summary

The astonishing new novel from Carnegie Medal, CliPPA Poetry Award, YA Book Prize and CBI Book of the Year award-winning author 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.'

Joe hasn't seen his brother for 10 years, and it's for the most brutal of reasons. Ed is on death row.

But now Ed's execution date has been set, and Joe is determined to spend those last weeks with him, no matter what other people think....

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?

Moonrise

This boom was absolutely amazing so heartwarming at some points but my heart broke at others. I love the characters and it was very moving, it really made me think about what is happening in this day and age. Amazing book would definitely listen to it again and recommend.
