Eden finds solitude in an old abandoned home. She goes there to get away from the criticism and the feuding. But what she ultimately finds there is an unlikely group of friends, a motley crew of teens who are also escaping their own struggles at home, who give her the acceptance and encouragement she so desperately needs. Under a Purple Moon is a book about friendship, and in particular, about one young girl who comes to accept her own self-worth. Author Beverly Stowe McClure has done a splendid job depicting the wide and varied range of emotions experienced by Eden and her friends. Under a Purple Moon is a book which young readers will find to be very relatable.
