Diving into another summer read, I found myself taken away by this story.
1. Realism. This best thing this author does is great such realistic stories with great family dimensions.  The stories are always more than what they seem with the characters learning so much more about themselves and others around them.
2. I don’t need to be fixed. I love this storyline. Not everyone wants to be fixed. They are happy right where they are. They don’t need more cause what they have is enough. They are content with that and I love that Emaline is a content teenager. She has seen the mistakes her mother made and saw them for what they were.
3. Love. The love interest in quite difficult in this book. First you have Luke is great. And then he makes some mistakes that make me question everything. And Theo. A great fast-paced guy who is always on the go looking for the next big thing. Personally, I think Emaline, needs to find some other guy. That’s all I’m saying.
4. Parents. I really love that this book show some great family dimensions. Growing up with stepbrothers/sisters and half-brothers, I totally understood the family. They aren’t perfect but I adored the way Emaline’s family was always there for her.
5. Realization. The best part of the book is the realization of life and situations. You see, you can have the moon and more without having it all. Emaline saw that. She was happy and knew exactly what she wanted.  Watching her grow up, learning hard lessons made Emaline stronger and more aware of who she is.
The Moon and More is a story of life and love.  A coming of age tale, that touches elements that any reader can get into, The Moon and More is great.

I have read everyone of sarah dessens books, multiple times. And i loved every single one of them. Thats why i have to give this book one star- because i know she is capable of so much more. I hated theo's character, and felt like there was absolutely no connection between him and emaline. In fact i didnt feel a very close connection with emaline and anyone. all in all if this book was written by someone else it would have been a ok book but given my love for sarah dessen books its sad that this book didnt deliver the amazingness i waited so long for.

    This is an excellent book. The romance is very well written. I was particularly impressed with the rich character development. The story doesn't slow down.

    Perfect.

    As always with Sarah Dessen's books, this one will leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. There was only one character in the entire book that I didn't like (Emaline's father). Even he was fleshed out and not at all flat. I felt like I came to personally know every character in this book - such amazing characterization! I love Sarah Dessen's fictional town of Colby, as well. Having grown up in a small town (albeit not one on a beach) I can really relate to the atmosphere, and the beach adds an extra fun element to it. This book also hit home for me because I recently found myself in a similar situation as Emaline, receiving a full ride to a state school. I've been having second thoughts about it - maybe I should have applied to a more prestigious university? But reading this book and seeing how Emaline ended up exactly where she needed to be and where she fit in has made me feel so much more confident that I, too, am making the right choice and will be exactly where I need to next year. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who are going through big decision processes (college perhaps), recently experienced a big disappointment (Emaline experiences many), or just looking for a great summery beach read!

    In love

    Im so in love with all of her books. I have read every single one of them and it always feels like decades until i csn read her next one because waiting a day would feel like too long. Im only a quarter of the way through this book and i love it already. Sarah Dessen never dissapoints.

    Another delightful read (no spoiler review)

    As a longtime Sarah Dessen fan, I am used to her typical plot of girl meets boy, past hurts are revealed, then they fall in love...and I love it. I will just say that this story breaks the mold without sacrificing Dessen's knack for creating realistic and loveable characters. Plus, her references to characters from her other books make me smile every time! Colby is a real place to me. Fantastic book.
