The incredible story of an American girl's survival during World War II. 1941. War. It's coming. It takes your father. It takes your mother. Life will never be the same. Not for Lou Davis. When fog requires Japanese dignitaries to reroute their flight from San Francisco to Claret Lake, fourteen-year-old Lou becomes suspicious about the direction of the war. Two weeks later her dreams of becoming a pilot are ripped away when Pearl Harbor is attacked and an error in the 1940 census results in every male over eighteen being drafted and all the women being forced to work in factories on the coast. Lou and her asthma are left behind-and in charge. She has a secret crush on the oldest boy left in Claret Lake, but after her parents are ripped away from her, she feels alone and abandoned. Running a town full of unruly kids is worse than a full-blown asthma attack, and the only thing she sees looming on the horizon is the enemy's plane and a boatload of disaster. How is she supposed to save a whole town when harsh winters descend, food becomes scarce, and the enemy threatens to destroy everything she has fought so hard to protect? Then Lou remembers the ancient legend...the legend of the moon tears. Staking her town's survival on lore from the past, she channels her inner Amelia Earhart and takes off toward an unknown future. Inspired by true events, Moon Tears is a coming-of-age tale-a tale of war, a tale of loss, a tale of survival.
