Genre:YA Contemporary Romance

A luminous young adult novel that evokes Judy Blume’s Forever for a new generation.

Ever since Sarah was born, she’s lived in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Scarlett. But this summer on Cape Cod, she’s determined to finally grow up. Then she meets gorgeous college boy Andrew. He sees her as the girl she wants to be. A girl who’s older than she is. A girl like Scarlett.

Before she knows what’s happened, one little lie has transformed into something real. And by the end of August, she might have to choose between falling in love, and finding herself.

Fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins are destined to fall for this story about how life and love are impossible to predict. 


You watch the world, I’m not even sure you live in it,

What a touching story, a story that you can’t help but fall in love with. I felt sorry for Sarah, I felt in love with her story. Of course I wished that she hasn’t lied to Andrew but at the same time I could see why she did it. Sarah wanted to be noticed. What had caught my attention from start had been the cover and the title. The couple on the cover looked cozy and happy and I couldn’t help but wonder what’s their story. Once I read the summary of the novel, by then I was already hooked and I didn’t even start the book. BETWEEN US AND THE MOON is defiantly one of those books that will fill you with emotions from start till end of the book. Every page, every chapter had me craving me for more. I wanted to see what would happen with Sarah and with Sarah and Andrew and of course I couldn’t help but wonder if she tell him the truth, and what would happen when she finally did.

You can see that there is connection between Sarah & Andrew, from moment that two of them met. Just by the way that two of them communicated with one another. I just wished that Sarah haven’t lied to him and maybe the outcome could be different. I can see why she did it, because for a chance she wanted be someone different, be noticed and be out of her sister Scarlett’s shadow. Maybe outcome could been different if she told him before they slept together. I felt like Sarah didn’t even think about what might happen to him if someone found out. I wished she figured out that part before. She let him believe all those lies too. Sarah was one of those characters that I loved and hated at same time, mostly based on the decisions. Two of them had a special connection, a real love, and she threw it all away because of her lies, that he eventually found out about.

I’m not sure what to think of her family; honestly the only person that I actually liked was Gran. Others seemed like they were pressuring her, it’s no wonder that she wanted something different. She needed an escape. Sometimes I couldn’t help but wonder if Scarlett even cared about her, at times it seemed that all she cared about, was herself. But when she came to her defense and when she was there for her when she needed someone, I knew she loved her, she just didn’t show it often. There were so many emotions that went through me while reading the novel. However, I wasn’t sure about the ending, it didn’t feel complete to me but that was only one thing that I disliked about BETWEEN US AND THE MOON .
