‘TELL IT TO THE MOON’ – Siobhan Curham

To make a dream come true, tell it to the moon! Tell It to the Moon continues the story of Moonlight Dreamers Amber, Maali, Sky and Rose, who are not like everyone else and don’t want to be: becoming friends gives them the courage to be themselves. After failing to find her surrogate mother, Amber is left unsure of who she is and what she wants to do; Maali’s spiritual faith is tested when her father becomes ill; Sky, previously home-schooled, struggles to adapt to the pressures of the school system; and after having found the courage to come out, Rose begins to pursue her dream of becoming a patissier. Once again the four girls band together to help one another overcome their individual challenges and fulfill their dreams in this fabulous and heart-warming celebration of friendship.

Thanks to Walker Books for sending me a copy of TELL IT TO THE MOON for review.

Check out the interview I did with Siobhan last year after the release of THE MOONLIGHT DREAMERS: https://alwaysandforeverreading.wordpress.com/2017/01/02/author-interview-siobhan-curham/

I loved THE MOONLIGHT DREAMERS when I read it last year. It’s an adorable contemporary focusing on the friendships of four completely different and diverse teenage girls. And TELL IT TO THE MOON was no exception. It was great to see what the girls were up to in the sequel and follow more of their adventures.

Sky was my favourite in the last book and she held her place at the top of the ladder for me in TELL IT TO THE MOON. There’s just something about her personality and her character that I love. I loved how she continues perusing poetry, and there’s a gorgeous guy (Leon) who she meets along the way.

Maali is dealing with some family issues as her dad is in hospital. She is a sweet character and it was heartbreaking reading about her going through such a tough time. Luckily she had her Moonlight Dreamers to pick her up when she needed them.

Rose comes to terms with her sexuality and comes out to her dad and mum. This was a big thing for her and it was so great to see it handled so well. She also came out to the Moonlight Dreamers who were also really happy for her.

And Amber. I feel like Amber had the least going on throughout this book. She’s still working on her blog (which was a lot of fun to read about) but she has writers, or bloggers, block which was totally relateable.

As much as I liked TELL IT TO THE MOON, I feel like not too much happened throughout the plot. I don’t know if that was just me, but from memory it’s a lot less eventful than THE MOONLIGHT DREAMERS was. I think my reading taste has probably matured a lot in the last  year, so that could also affect the way I see the two books. I still liked this book, just probably not as much as the first one.

I do believe that younger readers would love these two books, and if you love books that focus on friendships and include diverse characters, then this series is for you!
