  • The light of the many moons may never be the same

    This was a lovely story of so many people pushing against what they are and need for themselves and from others. Sam's journey is one that is familiar even if I haven't lived it, and Miel's blossoming wrist holds the same terror and hope that any real, thorned rose would hold. Their interactions with one another are tender and heartwarming while never straying from what is real. The characters that fill their world are as colorful as the pumpkins that define their town to the moons that Sam uses to express their thoughts without speaking. The magic realism keeps this book ethereal in a way that makes reading more of a glide than a process, but the honesty of the dialogue to actual langauge patterns is a reminder that this is meant to be happening in our world with a twist of impossibility rather than within make believe trying to immitate what we know. Miel and Sam simultaneously define friendship and love; their many iterations of family define what it is to openly put all your trust into someone; and the Bonner sisters show what it is to be part of a whole trying to find what it is to be away from that whole. Highly recommendable for anyone who has every known the taste of love; even more recommendable for those who like catharsis to be so fulfilling that it manifests into its own tangible image.

  • Beautifully written, Must Read

    Summary: Sam and Miel have been best friends since they met. Everyone in their town thinks the two of them are strange just because roses grow out of Miel wrists, and she spilled out of the town's rusted old water tower one night, and Sam paints moons and them hangs them in trees and nobody really knows about his life before he and his mother moved to town. But what if there were four sisters rumored to be witches, who even Sam and Miel stay away from. The sisters are out to get Miel's roses thinking that they hold the power of falling in love. The sisters are willing to use all of Miel's and Sam's secrets to get what they want. What secrets do the sisters know? Do the sisters know the true about Sam? Characters: Miel, (also known as Honey for her love of Honey) a teenage girl, who has roses growing from her wrists, Sam,(also known as Moon because he loves painting them) teenage boy who has a secret past that only a few people know. Aracely, the woman who raised Miel and helps people who are lovesick. Bonner Sisters,(Peyton, Chloe, Ivy, Lian) rumored to be witches, always getting what they want. Final Thoughts: The cover is so beautiful, it is the reason why I took a chance on this book, so glad I did loved it from start to finish. I love YA books that deal with real issues that people face everyday of their lives. This book was beautifully written. Thought the part where they all reveal their secrets was perfect. A Must Read for anyone who is keeping secrets that might be stopping them from enjoying their lives.
