Halo Moon

Sharon Cohen
Authors:
Sharon Cohen

There's a hundred ways to start this story, a hundred ways to tell it. Each one is impossible. Each one, unbelievable. But it did all happen and I promise it's all true. The stunning new novel from outstanding new author Sharon Cohen.Halo Moon loves stars, and the night sky is full of them in the remote village of Thribbleston on the edge of Pockley Moor. It's the summer holidays and a new boy has arrived. His name is Pedro Ortega - tall and beautiful, gracious and elegant, like no one Halo has ever met before - quite out of place in this wild landscape. He soon catches the attention of Halo's life-long friend, Jane, and Halo's loyalty is tested when Jane's mum suddenly disappears... Thousands of miles away, in Ethiopia, a boy has unearthed an incredible object. He calls it the Portendo device and it reveals a terrible truth which will send him on a quest that will change everyone's lives for ever... As Halo says: There's a hundred ways to start this story, a hundred ways to tell it. Each one is impossible. Each one, unbelievable. But it did all happen and I promise it's all true. There was a boy with eyelashes the shape of crescent moons and a fierce, spoilt girl with burning amber hair and a dark-skinned stranger from a far-away land who told us this: there is a date, there is an hour, there is a moment when it will happen, and there is nothing we can do to stop it. So I'll just go on and tell the tale. As it was. As it is. As if it's happening right now and I'm living it again and you're living the story through me.
