Book Review – When the Moon Was Ours

When the Moon Was OursWhen the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Miel and Sam have been best friends since they were young, but they are somewhat strange. Miel grows roses out of her wrist and Sam hangs painted moons in trees. But as weird as they are, even Miel and Sam stay away from the Bonner sisters, rumored to be witches. When the Bonner sisters decide they want Miel’s roses, Miel and Sam must fight to protect all their respective secrets from exposure. I’m not quite sure how to describe this book. I think it is best described as magical realism but really it was just strange. However, I still felt that the book is a worthwhile, haunting, character-driven story that is nothing if not unique.
