BECAUSE OF THE MOON is a story about Jay, a graffiti artist, that is in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is caught in a chop shop when he is hauled into the NYC police station. Jay's mother calls his grandfather that he has never met to help keep him out of legal trouble. Instead of going to a juvenile center, Jay is forced to live on his families Indian reservations, The First Nations. Jay has trouble adjusting to his new family and friends, but soon learns to love his grandfather, his stories and the land. This book is filled with tales of the First Nation and is a beautifully written book about the culture of the First Nations. It is a coming of age story and I feel any young adult or adult will enjoy it. This book was received for the purpose of an honest review.
