Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Penny Berne's life seems idyllic. At home, she is the daughter of a successful inventor and event planner. At school, she is surrounded by a close-knit group of drama department friends. She is even cast as the lead in the school play opposite her close friend, for whom she harbors romantic feelings. However, Penny's life is far from ideal. Her mother has a mental illness and struggles with addiction. In an attempt to hide her problems at home, Penny quits the school play and develops an icy indifference toward her friends. For a year, the teen leads a very different life than she did sophomore year—when she wasn't consumed with her mother's problems. When disaster and lightning strike, the past year is completely wiped from her memory, and Penny must figure out who she really is. This book starts slowly, but it picks up after a few chapters, becoming a more engaging read. Descriptions of Penny's mother's mental illness and addiction are vague enough for sensitive and middle school readers. Maizel adeptly weaves facts about lightning strike victims into the story. They are absolutely fascinating and are well placed within the narrative. VERDICT A sweet and sour tale that would make a good addition to YA romance fans' summer reading lists. Give to teens who enjoy books by Katie Cotugno or Robin Constantine.—Ellen Fitzgerald, White Oak Library, Lockport, IL

Review

“Maizel delivers a satisfying and fairly distinctive twist on the trendy teen-amnesia novel. Cloaked in the glow of a mysterious and almost magical influx of fireflies, it’s a fresh take with a familiar feel.” (Kirkus)

“A good addition to YA romance fans’ summer reading lists. Give to teens who enjoy books by Katie Cotugno or Robin Constantine.” (School Library Journal)

“A contemporary, coming-of-age romance about first friend betrayals and first loves…Teens who are fans of light summer romances with a dollop of drama…will be intrigued and rooting for Penny in her journey towards self-love, actualization, and acceptance.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

Praise for Between Us and the Moon: “The romance between Sarah and Andrew is what first love is meant to be. A fine summer fling for a satisfying summer read.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“With its themes of confidence and discovering one’s true self, this summer romance is a great choice for teens.” (School Library Journal)

“Between Us and the Moon [is] the absolute, perfect beach/summer book. It will make you laugh and smile and it will break your heart at times as well.” (Confessions of a Bookaholic)

“Rebecca Maizel is surely an author I will be keeping an eye out for.” (Dark Faerie Tales)

“Between Us and the Moon is wonderful! It has a great heroine, a girl who uses the summer to find herself and define herself and everything she went through felt perfectly genuine. (Bewitched Bookworms)
