Barbara Braxton's review of Racing the Moon that was previously published on this blog is now on the ReadPlus website.
Barbara says: "This story is skilfully written, the pace is swift and it kept me so engaged I finished it in two sittings." She also discusses whether Racing the Moon, which is recommended for readers 12 to 14 years, is suitable for Year 6 students.
In view of the allusions in the story to child sexual abuse, she believes "it is essential that such things should not be neglected especially as they are an integral part of the story, but you need to be aware that it could cause questions to be asked. If I were still in my primary library, it would be on the shelf with a Senior Fiction sticker on it."
In conclusion, Barbara states, "this is an auspicious start to what could be a lengthy career as a writer for the YA market and I look forward to reading more of Michelle's work."
Thank you Barbara!
