Moya Fairwell has just turned thirteen and lives in a colorful, strangely-built house on a hill with her shrill mother and her lazy father, and her quirky, ancient grandmother. Her classmates call her "Martian Moya" because she's never quite fit in.
But when her grandmother starts talking about prophecies, and she hears her name whispered on the breeze, and a strange new neighbor from across the street finds himself on her doorstep in the middle of the night -- Moya finds out just how different she is.
Join Moya and her new friend, Fritz, on a strange and magical journey to Rimorr, to fulfill the prophecy of The Thirteenth Moon.
