Claire’s mum has been keeping secrets … and now she’s left Claire’s dad and dragged her to live in a run-down old shack in the country.

Did anyone ask Claire if that was what she wanted?!

Not only does Claire have to leave her dad, her friends and her perfectly good life in the city, but now she has to deal with her mother’s new boyfriend, ‘Mac’.

Claire is pretty sure that this enormous life-as-we-know-it change is absolutely NOT a good thing. But with her mum in love with Mac and her new job, it looks like it’s up to Claire to bring her ‘real’ family back together.

A warm-hearted story about changing families and embracing new beginnings.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    This is a heart-warming story that addresses an issue that is facing many of our children today. Parents separating, new partners being introduced and children being forced to move to new places. It would be an excellent text for them to read to see they are not the only ones who experience what they are feeling The book touches on separation, guilt, loneliness, rejection and acceptance. It does touch briefly on domestic violence so I would recommend it for children 11 and up. It is just under 300 pages but the writing is quite large. Kathryn Schumacher

  3. Rated 4 out of 5

    This is a well-written and easy to read story that uses language and experiences that will resonate with any ‘tween’. Dianne Bates has provided a book that encourages embracing new beginnings and allowing love back after hurt. It is a book not only for young people who are experiencing the pain of separation but also a feel-good story for the young reader. rjead more – http://www.glamadelaide.com.au/main/book-review-to-the-moon-and-back-by-dianne-bates/
