Information about the author.
Turtle Moon transports the reader to Verity, Florida, a place where anything can happen during the month of May, when migrating sea turtles come to town, mistaking the glow of streetlights for the moon. Lucy Rosen, a transplanted New Yorker, is determined to start a new life in Verity, along with her twelve-year-old son, Keith.
But neither Lucy nor Keith could begin to imagine what the town holds in store for them. Everything they’ve ever hoped for, everything they’ve feared, begins to happen. When Julian Cash, Verity-born and fierce enough to paralyze bees with fright, enters their lives, nothing will be the same—for Lucy and her son, or for Julian.
