Moon At Nine by Deborah Ellis - the true story of two girls who fell in love in post-revolution Iran Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

What did you like about the book? Farrin goes to a school for gifted girls, and when Sadira begins attending her school, the two fall in love. Amid all of the political upheaval in her country, Farrin is caught kissing Sadira and the two are punished. Farrin thinks she can’t survive without seeing Sadira, but can she survive if they stay together? Heart-stirring, believable, and ultimately heartbreaking, this is a must-read.
