Review of "Racing the Moon" on ReadPlus

Michelle Morgan - Friday, May 02, 2014

The recent review of Racing the Moon on the ReadPlus review blog really gets to the heart of what I was trying to achieve in the novel:

"Morgan's talent is for juxtaposing an idyllic Australian past with the kinds of dark secrets that are common to human nature across all eras."

At the end of the review, Deb Robins gives her overall assessment: "Racing the Moon is confronting Young Adult fiction and readers of any age will be captivated by Joe, who wins our admiration as a stoic and heroic figure."
