Recommended Read: Meet me at the moon tree

Meet me at the moon tree by Shivaun Plozza is a middle grade novel about a father’s death, family, grief, moving household, making new friends and moon trees. It is a book to wallop your heart and pull you into a hug at the same time.

Our reviewer writes: Dealing with death and grief is such a complicated life event which everyone experiences differently, and I really appreciated how Shivaun was able to present these different aspects in a child-accessible way. I loved the character, Carina’s, observations of friendship and the history of the moon seeds.
