    1. Reviewed by Rebecca Wells for TeensReadTooAt first, Julia Johnson, a teenager with penchant for Gothic novels, is less than enthusiastic about her summer job as an au pair in Cape Cod. However, she quickly warms to the task once she arrives and discovers her young charge, Molly, a rambling old house full of oddities, and a resident ghost: Molly's dead mother, Maria, a compelling photographer whose touch is still present in Molly's life. As she explores the Cape over the summer, Julia quickly bec [...]

    2. **Spoilers might be in this review** Have you ever wanted to know what would happen in a blue moon? Or what would happen if you would meet the weirdest little girl your life? Well then Blue Moon is a book just for you! It's about a girl named Julia who is going to an old house over the summer as an au pair. She meets a little girl, which her name is Molly, and her step-mother, Cheryl. Julia realizes that the house is different than any other house in cape cod. Julia later finds out that Molly's [...]

    3. The writing was really good that was the first thing I noticed.The story seemed to drag till half the book was done, but then i understood that it was so that the characters develop completely and everything doesn't happen in a rush. Some of the things Sean and Mabel and even Molly taught Julia are applicable to any person that's even slightly interested in the unknown. It's good to have a connection but it's dangerous if you don't stay grounded. I personally thought Maria's message was a little [...]

    4. A wistful, mysterious novel outlining the coming of age of a young woman as she spends her Summer in Cape Cod watching over a young loner named Molly. Over the Summer, Julia fights her way through feeling different than her peers, falling for a painter significantly older than herself, and the restless spirit of Molly´s deceased Mother, Maria.Overall a pretty enrapturing read; although the ending was extremely vague and could have been executed better.

    5. A beautiful ghost story with shades of the Brontës and Henry James. Even the diary structure channels a certain 19th-century vibe. Beneath the Gothic trappings, this is a moving (and painfully recognizable) story of grief and inconvenient love. Written long before paranormal YA became a cliché, the novel emphasizes thoughtful character development over heavy-handed plot twists. Feil's voice—filled with compassion, intelligence, and humor—shines through every sentence.

    6. well i judged this book by its cover and i thought it looked pretty cool with like the blue and the blurry face in the foggy mirrorwell it wasnt what i expected a horror book not even close but an okay book.d if it werent for the cover i wouldnt have ever read it.

    7. this book is eerie and amazing. i love the sense of chills that go up your neck when you read each sentence. its that good.

    8. This a solid book with a solid plot and characters. There was some mystery to it but I'm not fond of how vague it ended up being. Overall a quick good read.
