Devastating ... Any reader with a heart will weep buckets * Sunday Times, Book of the Week * Mistrust, forgiveness and the premeditated stripping away of a future, distorting many other lives in unfathomable ways, are communicated through Crossan's spare, expressive free verse, with understated, heart-breaking clarity * Guardian * Impossible to put down - its agonising and informative plot, along with the poetry of the writing, makes for a powerful story that should appeal to anyone over 13 with a heart and a love for storytelling ... Deep, light, witty and authentic * The Times * An outstanding and daring achievement ... Bravely tackles the issue of capital punishment, putting an all too human face on the protagonists * Irish Examiner * Brilliant ... An affecting story about the power of sibling love ... One of the most important writers of YA fiction around * Times Educational Supplement * Powerful * Irish Times * One of the most thought-provoking, tender stories of the year * IMAGE * Spare and sad and angry, but Moonrise is also laced with nuggets of happiness thanks to how beautifully the brothers' relationship is built. This is an important, and strangely lovely, read * Sunday Post *
