MOONRISE by Sarah Crossan
Joe Moon is seventeen years old.
He hasn't seen his brother, Ed,
since he was seven,
when Ed stole his aunt's car
and hotfooted it to Texas.
taking a phone call from Ed.
There was an incident
a policeman was shot and killed
despite proclaiming his innocence
ended up on death row.
Now, ten years later, Ed's execution is imminent,
and Joe travels to Texas
to see his brother,
and possibly to say goodbye.
A powerful (and horribly sad) story
and justice (or injustice).
