Friendship, first love and having fun fuel this entertaining and slice-of-life story.
A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2021
Jokes a-plenty in this fresh and witty version of a Year 6 school camp with a difference. Set in a not-so-very-different space world in which the kids travel around on flykes and eat bounce cakes (the bounce ingredient ensures they bounce straight into your mouth when you drop them), it captures all the pleasure and pain of a residential school trip. Friendship, first love and having fun fuel this entertaining and slice-of-life story.
A Moon Boy Loves My Best Friend is the third book in the Moon Girl series, but all of the books work perfectly as a standalone read.
"Amazing book full of science fiction and imagination" said Prish..."A fast paced, excitingly futuristic adventure, with tough lessons of friendship and relationships and remembering that we can all learn from our mistakes." thought Lexi.
