Emily X.R. Pan is back, and her latest book is absolutely incandescent! I don’t think I can say enough good things about this book! Star-crossed lovers, heady romance, magic – seriously, An Arrow to the Moon is so incredible, as soon as I finished, I wished I could wipe my memory and read it again for the first time. This is one of those books that will sweep you up in its glorious pages and not put you down until the final page! Truly, An Arrow to the Moon felt like a formative experience, and it gave me the same feeling I got reading Strange the Dreamer for the first time – that soaring sensation of an all-encompassing story and you just know you’ll never forget reading. I can’t wait for this book to sit beside Emily’s equally gorgeous first book, The Astonishing Color of After, and I’ll leave you now with that thought and this stunning cover!
Luna Chang dreads the future. Graduation looms ahead, and her parents’ expectations are stifling. When she begins to break the rules, she finds her life upended by the strange new boy in her class, the arrival of unearthly fireflies, and an ominous crack spreading across the town of Fairbridge.
As Hunter and Luna navigate their families’ enmity and secrets, everything around them begins to fall apart. All they can depend on is their love…but time is running out, and fate will have its way.
