    1. Abby like everyone else on Earth is looking forward to seeing the comet It will turn the light from the moon purple and the Sunsets Sunrises would be exceptional One problem though The Space Dust that is left on the Earth killed everyone who wasn t quarantined such as Scientists and children who haven t reached adolescence Abby and her brother Jordan are left to try and take care of Lisette aka Toucan Time is running out because when children reach Adolescence they become sick and die I loved th [...]


    2. The moon turns purple as the earth goes through the tail of a comet Everyone in the world settles in to watch with their purple beer and purple pizza to celebrate the great event The next morning everyone who has reached puberty has died A group of kids are on an island off the coast of Maine they have to learn how to look after themselves then they start to die


    3. Night of the Purple Moon was a brilliant read.Life on Castine Island was absolutely normal, until the night of the purple moon The space dust killed all the adults on the planet, save for some scientists living in quarantine The situation leaves kids alone to take care of themselves The lives of all children on the verge on puberty are in danger as they will be the next victims of the purple moon.Abby, Jordan and Toucan of the Leigh family take the initiative and bring together all kids of Casti [...]


    4. This is definitely the type of book that I enjoy reading It has a post apocalyptic setting that is wholly unique and completely frightening Something that really caught my attention from the beginning was the stark writing style the author has It goes straight to the point, giving the story a good sense of urgency that really helps to set the right mood This doesn t mean that the story is lacking in imagination in any way On the contrary, the plot is fun and different enough to stand out from th [...]


    5. I like the cover of this book a great deal It s disturbing and inviting at the same time while clearly defining its young adult audience.The premise of the novel and the series to follow is solid and interesting a space borne disease that creates a sudden planet of child only survivors with death perched at puberty s dividing line Nice It also featured a strong and admirable female main character All good things and with a reasonably well thought out plot The execution, however, as far as charac [...]


    6. Night of the Purple Moon is a very pleasant surprise I love the idea of seeing a comet, and then having purple sunsets and moons for the weeks following Of course, not if it would kill me and all of the other adults and older teens in the world Which is exactly what happens in the novel Excitement and wonder over the breathtaking sky turned into fear and the struggle to survive in just a matter of hours The kids of Castine Island must come together and work together in order to ensure their surv [...]


    7. What to say about this book I found it stupid, predictable and boring, gosh was it ever boring Let me explain The book is about a girl named Abby grade 7 her little brother Jordan grade 6 her baby sister Toucan and their next door neighbors Kevin grade 7 and Emily grade 6 All the adults die world wide after a meteor goes through the earth s atmosphere and turns the moon purple The book changes P.O.V s constantly Abby, Jordan, Kevin, and Emily , then if that s not bad enough the author trys to ad [...]


    8. I don t normally read dystopia genre books, but with all the free giveaways on , there is no risk in trying something new I was pleasantly surprised by Night of the Purple Moon The author, Scott Cramer, does a wonderful job in developing his characters in the story sometimes making it difficult for the reader to comprehend that these are all prepubescent youngsters trying to survive without adults The kids are not at risk of turning into zombies, but they must eat, find shelter and keep busy A m [...]


    9. I win a copy of this book a while ago, and in one word AmazingThe book is very entangling and the scenario that it brings forward is pretty interesting.I watched as how the plot unfolded with all it s good and bads situations, the struggles and how in the same situation one person can change so much or stand they ground.It s a beautiful tale of determination and courage, I really recommend it for dystopian lovers More reviews bookwormiespot


    10. A breathtaking imaginative fantasy story that is simply sensational and a scintillating read I was delighted to have the opportunity of reading Scott Cramer s The Toucan Trilogy, as it sounded like something new and exciting I am delighted to say that book 1 exceeded all expectations as I plunged into a phenomenal storyline filled with originality, creative flair and out of this world imaginative ideas As a young adult novel I would recommend this for those 13 years upwards to 15 16, as the plot [...]


    11. I was approached to review the audiobook specifically, so below is my review on Audible.What made the experience of listening to Night of the Purple Moon the most enjoyable The narrator did a great job with the voices and her presentation of the main character.What was the most interesting aspect of this story The least interesting The struggle to survive and not losing hope made the book interesting Least interesting, probably the simple way in which the story is told.Which scene was your favor [...]


    12. After reading this book I am just speechless I was contacted by author Scott Cramer and was intrigued by his dystopian storyline Usually books of the dystopian genre consist of a world that has aged after a worldly disaster In Night of the Purple Moon you read what happens the very next day I was put into a world where no adult survives an epidemic that comes forth in a blink of an eye, and was emotionally vested in these children who had to learn to survive You are taken through this journey wi [...]


    13. This was a wonderfully intense, gripping, wholly engrossing dystopian story of children trying to survive in a nightmarish world where all the adults around them have died and they must rely on their own strengths and courage to carry on living It was heartbreaking, sad and horrific to see them struggling in the new brutal world that was thrust upon them by the germ bearing comet, but, at the same time, there were amazing examples of bravery, compassion, determination and love.The characters wer [...]


    14. I found this book too young for me The characters are all pre puberty and seem to have a limited knowledge of the real world I seriously cringed when one kid had to explain to another what CNN was The thought that some of these kids could suddenly be running their own community and growing food and doing security etc wasn t greatly realistic given the immature behaviour and lack of knowledge they had I also feel that the kids were a bit on the young side to be involved in the kind of relationshi [...]


    15. This was a good surprise because you never know what you re going to get with a book suggested by Earth passed through the tail of a comet which causes a weird purple fog to form during the days afterward What happens to the people exposed to this is baffling, but it seems to affect adults only Abby leads her friends to try and find a cure, but puberty is just around the corner for some.


    16. Overall this is your typical apocalypse book, but with pre teens and younger Narration does move through time quickly just touching on the important bits sometimes day to day or sometimes picking up a month or a few months later.Anyhow, what lowered the star level is really a result of the characters not speaking age appropriately Minus Kevin, the Indian genius, none of the kids spoke like typical 12 or 13 year olds.

    19. THREE WORDS Gripping Palpable Well DevelopedMY REVIEW There is no shortage of dystopian novels available today, but Scott Cramer s Night of the Purple Moon is unique in that its main characters are middle school age teens and tweens But don t think that just because the characters in this book are young that the story lacks suspense, powerful emotions or intense experiences It doesn t lack these things at all Life for Abby and her family on Castine Island is seemingly normal, until the night of [...]


    20. Night of the Purple Moon is a great read for dystopia and YA fans Being a huge fan myself, I have to say that this book is one of my top favorites, and I have read TONS of dystopia books I was offered this book from the author himself and I m glad that I got the chance to review It because this one was a real page turner It s the night of the purple moon when Earth enters the comet s tail, and astronomers predict weeks of colorful sunsets and sunrises, and best of all a purple moon The whole wor [...]


    21. A copy was provided by the author for review.Also posted on Rally The Readers.Night of the Purple Moon is a harrowing dystopian novel that is both inspiring and heartbreaking It s hard to imagine waking up the morning after watching a comet streak through the sky and finding out that all of the adults have died This is exactly what happens to Abby Leigh and her siblings, twelve year old Jordan and two year old Toucan real name Lisette , though, and the ensuing story of survival kept me glued to [...]


    22. I ve had the eBook of this on my kindle since it came out and have wanted to read it since but never found the time When I saw the audio book, I grabbed it and started it straight away.When a comet enters earths atmosphere and moves across the moon, it creates a purple moon Everyone is excited to see this once in a lifetime event and there are parties planned Abby is going to watch it with her family in their back lawn The comet passes and it looks so pretty but Abby has school the next day and [...]


    23. First thoughtsThe synopsis was so good The plot was so unique and even though I had no free time really I couldn t pass it up This needs to be a movie Scott Cramer did an amazing with this book and I am sooo glad I accepted the request to review it My thoughtsI really enjoyed this book It was so unique and unlike any other book that I ve read, especially for a post apocalyptic book Night of the purple had me from the very beginning I loved that I didn t have to wait long before the story to get [...]


    24. My review copy of Night of the Purple Moon was graciously provided by the author, Scott Cramer.The purple moon is a fabulous construct and one I had to google to determine whether or not it did, in fact, exist it appears it does not in science although there are a startling number of things with the name purple moon , as you can see here if you are interested and too lazy, I m sorry, I mean BUSY, to run your own Google search Teehee Scott Cramer s purple moon is a phenomenon caused by cosmic dus [...]


    25. Night of the Purple Moon was quite the surprise for me Don t get me wrong, just from reading the premise, I figured I would enjoy this book But, I had absolutely no idea that it would produce the emotional response that it did.The book starts out normal enough, with 13 year old, Abby, her 12 year old brother, Jordan, and her two year old sister, Toucan They have just moved to Castine Island with their father while their mother holds a job back in their old hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts Ab [...]


    26. I was given an electronic copy of this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review Virtually everyone on Earth is looking forward to seeing the purple moon they ve been promised for months The planet will pass through the tail of a comet, creating weeks of colourful sunsets and sunrises for them to enjoy What they re not expecting, though, is the space dust which has a devastating effect, killing off older teens and adults in just hours Abby Leigh, her brother Jordan, and their n [...]


    27. Free download on April2013 First I have to ask, who else thinks that the one cover here is SO similar to the movie cover for The Color Purple maybe too much so, as other covers have been introduced While a comet spreading germs that kill anyone who has passed through puberty isn t exactly normal , I didn t consider this a paranormal read in any way Everything presented was pretty realistic scientific within a fiction realm I don t know that I really even consider it dystopian, well, not futurist [...]


    28. 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 [...]


    29. I won this book from librarything member giveaways in exchange for an honest review.Night of the Purple Moon by Scott Cramer is about a group of kids that find themselves in the middle of an epidemic that has killed off most of the adult population The story is mainly about how the kids deal with this situation and band together for survival I ve been reading a lot of post apocalyptic novels recently, and when done right, they can be really compelling One thing I always look for is that the scie [...]


    30. when I was a teen, I read a book called The Girl Who Owned a City the premise being a virus wipes out everyone over the age of 13, and how the remaining children survive Reading it as a 13 year old girl, it was compelling, imagining how I would cope in such a horrific situation I wondered how this book would compare, with an almost identical start to the storyline Reading this as an adult, instead of imagining myself in the book, I wondered how my boys would deal with it There was the very intel [...]
