A plague from space kills everyone on Earth over about 15 years of age. The book follows a group of surviving children on a small isolated island. It is an interesting concept that would have potential in the hands of a better writer. Cramer's writing is unimaginative and juvenile, which is the greatest weakness of the book. It is the first book in a trilogy. Perhaps the other books are better, but after this one i was not inclined to devote the time to reading them. ( )

I was given the opportunity to read this for free in exchange for an honest review from librarything.com.

I just finished reading the first 2 books of this trilogy back to back, and I am hooked!!! Fast paced, depressing, hopeful, almost every emotion that you could possibly feel I felt while reading this. I cannot wait to read the conclusion to this series!!! ( )

I received this book as a give away as part of a compilation [Shattered Worlds]. I have decided to give each book it's own review as I finish them to give the authors their due.

I really enjoyed {The Night of the Purple Moon] by [Scott Cramer]. It was well written and kept up a good pace. It was very similar to other YA dystopian novels out there but I would gladly recommend it to my students who enjoy this genre.

It starts with the world awaiting the arrival of a comet. The Earth will end up in the tail and the dust is supposed to turn the moon purple. Unfortunately the dust contains something else as well. The humanity of the younger generations, as well as their ability to survive, is about to be tested. How the world would go on was up to them. ( )

Wow! It started slow but by the time I got to the end I wanted more, and then more.

Really enjoyed this book and looking forward to #2 in the Trilogy.

Great characters and a very different end-of-the world scenario. This one kills almost all the adults and goes on killing anyone that enters puberty.. It is interesting to see how the good and bad elements of our world are replicated in the children that are left. Those with hope (and have some contact with what is going on in the world) are the "goodies" and those that just give up go bad .. You can imagine that IS what would happen.

Work hard on that #3 book, Scott. I will be wanting it very soon! ( )

Book description
Space germs wipe out virtually everyone who has passed through puberty.

Abby Leigh is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple. For months, astronomers have been predicting that Earth will pass through the tail of a comet. They say that people will see colorful sunsets and, best of all, a purple moon.

But nobody has predicted the lightning-fast epidemic that sweeps across the planet on the night of the purple moon. The comet brings space dust with it that contains germs that attack human hormones. Older teens and adults die within hours of exposure.

On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her -- adolescence.
Haiku summary
Space germs decimate the adult population. Who will survive?
