When the Moon Was Ours Book Review

When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore 

A Book Review by Emma, West Orange Public Library Teen Book Reviewer

When the Moon Was Ours is a peculiar book about a girl and a guy who are trying to find their identity in life. Although many people find this book inspiring, I found it a bit hard to get through. I usually like my books to be fast paced, so a slower paced book is a change for me. The author also used symbolism throughout the novel which I found difficult to understand at times. Unfortunately, I couldn’t bring myself to complete this book, but if you enjoy symbolism and slower paced books, I’m sure you would like this book. When the Moon Was Ours was not the perfect match for me, but it could be yours.
