This book tells a story about a ten-year-old boy who, throughout his journey through the forests of Alabama, learns the true meaning of friendship. Moon Blake knows how to find just about anything in the forest. He and his father, a Vietnam War veteran who dislikes the government, had been hiding in a forest in Alabama for as long as Moon can remember. His mother died young, and she was buried not far from their little hidden shelter in the woods. But when the land they are living in was sold to a big-city lawyer, things started to go wrong. What happens when outsiders start infiltrating the forest?


When I first began reading ALABAMA MOON, I had no idea what to expect. I had to force myself to keep reading during the first couple of pages because there were so many things to establish. But when I got to the middle of the story, the excitement began& The plot was very interesting, and I can tell that the author spent a lot of time doing research and applying that to his well-written story. I believe that ALABAMA MOON is a book worth reading because it not only tells an interesting story, but also explains to us what friendship is all about.

Even though the character in the story is only 10, I suggest that the readers should be 12 and up when reading this because of some profanity.
