3 out of 5 (good)
I enjoyed this book once I got the setting 'right' in my head. It appears to have a dystopian twist to it. Once I had sorted that out, I sat back and enjoyed. I loved the flow of the story and the magical extras that were part of the story. The ending did confuse me and I had to re-read as it twisted a bit and I had to make sure I wasn't mixing up Moon Child with Mean Child. If you want to read something that is gentle and slightly different, then I can happily recommend this one.
