"In her debut collection, Semaan offers an upfront and moving glimpse into the true nature of healing: an imperfect, nonlinear journey."—Amanda Lovelace, bestselling author of the princess saves herself in this one

An illustrated poetry collection about finding light in the darkness. Set against the backdrop of the Lebanese Civil War and the author’s turbulent family life, Child of the Moon is a powerful reflection on her journey through fear, shame and despair, and the unconditional love that helped her begin to heal from childhood trauma. 

In between being your mother and father,
I forgot to be your daughter
And became the child of the moon
