I recieved this book from the author give an honest review.

Night of the Purple Moon was not what I was expecting it to be.
I was amazed on how the plot came together, and how the characters were written.

Imagined waking up one day and watching a comet and knowing that space dust would cover things, but what happens next is not what you expected. You and all other kids under the puberty age are the only survivors, all adults are dead. How would you survive?

Night of the Purple Moon takes you into the lives of those that are having to survive on their own without any adult help and on a small island away from the city. They start worrying when some of the older kids start hitting puberty and the symptoms of the space germs start attacking their body. Would there ever be a cure? Until Kevin one of the pre-teens who is very intelligent listens to the radio for some answers. The CDC is working on a cure. How many from the island will survive to be cured?

Abby, her brother Jordan, their sister Toucan and their father are waiting to watch the comet. It is said that the comet will causes colorful sunsets, sunrises and a purple moon. Abby does not really care to watch it, but her class assignment is to WATCH THE COMET. Before the comet comes everyone ends up falling asleep. When Abby and her siblings wake they find that their lives have been changed forever. Not only is there a purple moon, but all the adults have died. With the help of Kevin and his sister Emily, Abby and Jordan gather all the children from the island and start trying to survive. They learn how to milk cows, tend to chickens, gather fresh drinking water just in case they run out, and most of all start taking care of one another.

If you enjoy a good story that will keep you guessing what is going to happen next, and like to read what I would call post apocalyptic. Then I suggest you give Night of the Purple Moon a read,
