Blue Moon Day

Publisher: Random House

What must it be like going to boarding school, actually living at school? It could be really exciting, making new friends and finding independence away from home, or it could be desperately lonely and unsettling. And what about life in a school for young offenders or a school for the blind?

In this collection of short stories with a common theme, Anne Fine subtly demonstrates her understanding of children's fears and emotions when faced with new challenges. Covering an interesting and varied mix of situations, these enjoyable stories are a satisfying read, with particular appeal to more reluctant readers.
