Publisher's Summary

READ THE BOOK CRITICS ARE RAVING ABOUT!
“A brilliant debut.” —Graeme Simsion, New York Times bestselling author of The Rosie Project
“A heartwarming and unforgettable page-turner.” —Booklist, starred review
“A powerful affirmation of the fragility and strength of families.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“At once captivating and heart-wrenching…. Ginny's is a unique and compelling voice…. Ginny Moon is original, revealing and timely. And, with any luck, it will spark much-needed conversations around foster care, adoption and autism.” —The Toronto Star

Full of great big heart and unexpected humor, Ludwig's debut introduces the lovable, wholly original Ginny Moon who discovers a new meaning of family on her unconventional journey home.

Ginny Moon is exceptional. Everyone knows it—her friends at school, teammates on the basketball team, and especially her new adoptive parents. They all love her, even if they don't quite understand her. They want her to feel like she belongs.

What they don't know is that Ginny has no intention of belonging. She's found her birth-mother on Facebook, and is determined to get back to her—even if it means going back to a place that was extremely dangerous. Because Ginny left something behind and she's desperate to get it back, to make things right.

But no one listens. No one understands. So Ginny takes matters into her own hands…

Benjamin Ludwig's whip-smart, unforgettable novel is an illuminating look at one girl's journey to find her way home and one of the freshest debuts in years.

    Story
    "It gives the reader pause"

    Most of us who have led a sheltered life have no idea how an autistic teenager thinks or feels. I certainly got a small insight into that world and how the adults react to Ginny. It takes a lot of love and understanding. We on the outside of the box really do not know or understand the autistic mind. All the adult characters help the reader figure it out . Well done Benjamin Ludwig.

    Story
    "Poignant"

    I read this book with "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" in mind, given that the protagonist of the story was going to be a child with autism. This little lady was high functioning and her point of view was interesting.

    The narration was well done. It took me a while to accept the narrator's version of Ginny with a very child like voice. But once I got past that, the narration was something that I didn't even notice, which is a good thing.

    The story line is thin but the perspective and the heartbreak/heroism that is Ginny Moon was very poignant. I enjoyed this quick listen. If you liked the "Curious Incident...", you'll like this one too.

    Story
    "Ginny Moon is an utterly captivating heroine."
    Any additional comments?

    Ginny Moon's tenacious love and ingenuity, despite her inability to communicate and be understood is captivating. This is not a light-hearted romp exactly, but I recommend taking it to the beach to enjoy the simple and honest truths that are told through the innocent and uncomplicated perspective of an autistic teenage girl whose actions are purely motivated by love. It may make you think and may cause some discomfort and frustration but coming from the perspective of an innocent heroine with an inspiring strength of character will cushion the unpleasantries and by the end of the story, I dare say, make the reward of a satisfying closure that much sweeter..

    "Wonderful"

    As a social worker who works with children at risk I found this to be a very truthful account. It deals with things not only from the parent perspective but from the child perspective, who in this case is a child who has autism. Very informative read with a great storyline!
