Bright Moon Ridge by Linus Treefoot is the story of a young nineteen-year-old boy named Johnny Bartooth. He lives with his aunt and he never knew about his parents. His life takes a dramatic turn when he is visited by an old hippy named Heron. Heron brings a journal that once belonged to Johnny's father. The journal now becomes that one piece that helps Johnny reconnect with his parents and his past. What happens next is the gut wrenching story of a young boy who finally learns the truth and the emotional tale of two lovers who were separated by fate. Now Johnny is even more desperate to find his parents. He has been trying to fit in and become a part of a family that was never his and never will be. He yearns for his real family and he will do whatever it takes to find his parents, even if means he has to leave his only home and his country behind.
This novel was very emotional, especially when Mei (Johnny’s mother) was mentioned. I could feel her pain and I could feel the desperation of Bartooth to get to Mei and help her. Their story was tragic and very, very interesting. I liked Johnny; he was strong and determined and ready to find his real family. It was not as if he was ungrateful for the love and affection he received from his aunt and her family, but he never really fitted in. I was glad he had a direction to find his real family. This novel was really wonderful and very well constructed. Truly tremendous!
