Bedtime Story for Children - Lily and the Moon
PICTURE BOOK: Moon Lily
The novel makes it clear this story falls within that particular brand of sci-fi that is firmly embedded in the current world around us, that it is as much a work of social commentary as much as sci-fi. Halo is a 12 year old girl from rural Yorkshire who has spent her life looking at the stars. She is frustrated with the distance that adolescence is creating within herself and with her childhood best friend. Ageze is the level headed and intelligent eldest son of an engineer and teacher from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. When visiting his grandmother he finds a mysterious ancient Aksumite device that after research Ageze find it delivers portents about the future, including one of devastation and death thousands of miles away in Yorkshire, England. As Halo negotiates the ups and downs of her village life, Ageze sets off on a mission to reach her and warn of the impending doom but its going to take a leap of faith as to whether the grown ups will believe them. This novel is really interesting because it deals with a number of themes and issues without being preachy or obvious.
