I was touched and truly invested in Kylie's story, not only because she was our main character, but because of her struggles. Kylie's story had me imagining how difficult life would be as a young woman having to try and keep it together because you can't trust or depend on the adults around you. Even when placed with adults you should be able to trust, the trust doesn't come easily. I feel that Fehlbaum was able to convey the feelings from this real-world circumstance so well in Kylie's character.
Kylie's grandparents were also well thought-out and enjoyable. They made for a great and positive representation of what familial support should be. Stories that explore trauma and sadness could very easily overwhelm the reader, and so it takes a writer like Fehlbaum and a book like Find the Moon to bridge the gap so that we are not feeling overwhelmed but rather feeling empathy for the characters we are coming to care about as we read. This is not easily done!
I recommend this book for all readers, however, please be kind to yourself and take notice of the triggers that may overwhelm you.
