“The stories of the main characters intertwine beautifully, each one demonstrating the self-trust that enables them to do the right thing and to forgive. Writing in Ruby's voice, Ferruolo creates an engaging plot peopled with complex characters that gracefully navigate many issues of our time, including women's rights, immigration, prejudice and diversity, and bullying.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Ferruolo’s debut has a quietly magical feel, aided by passages describing Ruby’s fascination with the moon. The faraway moon serves as a poignant theme throughout the book and connects satisfyingly to Abigail’s backstory. The story also skillfully depicts everyday injustices and how those in power control the narrative unless ordinary people stand up against them. Ferruolo includes many examples of these brave, ordinary people. . .A quiet yet powerful story about courage.” ―Booklist, starred review

Ferruolo does an amazing job of creating characters who walk right off the page and and show me who they are. Along the journey I learned about ruby moons, how to get chickadees to feed from your hand, how to simulate flying while wearing snow shoes, and what a "Game Changer" is (trust me, you'll want one). Masterful storytelling. I look forward to more.
This novel handles its themes so gracefully. Space exploration, the moon walk, the justice system, feminist themes, the natural world, care for and love of wild things, immigration, kindness, empathy, and creating a space for the truth, even a difficult truth, to thrive are all woven together seamlessly. Ruby's relationship with the aging Abigail, and her determination to bring her fascinating story to light, is especially poignant.
