READ THE BOOK CRITICS ARE RAVING ABOUT! &#8220A brilliant debut." --Graeme Simsion, New York Times bestselling author of The Rosie Project &#8220A triumphant achievement." --Library Journal, starred review &#8220A heartwarming and unforgettable page-turner." --Booklist, starred review &#8220A powerful affirmation of the fragility and strength of families." --Publishers Weekly, starred review See the world differently. Ginny is a recently adopted teenager with autism. She has a new home, new parents, and a new last name. Before Ginny arrived at her new house, she spent years living in danger with her birth-mother. Her world is a much better, safer place now, and everyone tells her that she should feel happy. But Ginny is stifled. Her voice is pushed down. Silenced. Bottled up for too long now. It's ready to burst. Ginny is desperate to get back to where she came from, back to what she left behind. Because something heartbreaking happened there--something that only Ginny knows--and nothing will stop her from going back to make it right. She'll even get herself kidnapped. Ginny Moon is an illuminating look at one girl's journey to find her way home. In this stunning debut, Benjamin Ludwig gives a voice to the voiceless, reminding us that often we only hear those who speak the loudest, and there's much to be learned by opening up our ears and our hearts. Note from the Publisher: The original printing of this book features a creative distressed-look on the cover more

Review quote

"Ginny Moon is a brilliant debut. In asking us to identify with a developmentally delayed, autistic teenage girl and her peculiar obsession, Ben Ludwig set himself an Olympic degree of difficulty, but he succeeds with the extraordinary Ginny Moon. I was unable to put the book down as I willed her to overcome the obstacles within and around her. Ben Ludwig is a fine observer of human dynamics, and his sometimes dark sense of humor means that the emotional journey, challenging as it is, never becomes wearing. I was mightily impressed--this novel has all the elements for critical and popular success!" -Graeme Simsion, New York Times bestselling author of The Rosie Project "Ludwig's excellent debut is both a unique coming-of-age tale and a powerful affirmation of the fragility and strength of families.... Ludwig brilliantly depicts the literal-minded and inventive Ginny." -Publishers Weekly, starred reviewshow more
