About the Book

Where the Moon Isn't

While on vacation with their parents, Matthew and his older brother snuck out in the middle of the night to cause mischief. Only Matthew came home safely. Now, Matthew tells us, he has found a way to bring his brother back — by going off his meds. Funneled through Matthew’s slightly unreliable voice, the questions spark: What really unfolded that night so long ago? What happened to Matthew’s brother? And what role did Matthew play?

What begins as the story of a lost boy turns into a story of a brave man, yearning to understand what happened that night, in the years since, and to his very person. WHERE THE MOON ISN'T is tragic and tender and wonderful and heartbreaking and complicated, unafraid to look at dark and awful parts of life and the shadows of our hearts.
