'This luminous love story cuts bone deep' - Melissa Albert, bestselling author of The Hazel Wood Romeo and Juliet meets Chinese mythology in this lyrical and magical novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Astonishing Colour of After. Hunter Yee has perfect aim with a bow and arrow, but all else in his life veers wrong. He's sick of being haunted by his family's past mistakes. The only things keeping him from running away are his younger brother, a supernatural wind and the bewitching girl at his new high school. Luna Chang dreads the future. Graduation looms ahead, and her parents' expectations are stifling. Then her life is turned upside down by the strange new boy in her class, the arrival of unearthly fireflies, and an ominous crack spreading across the town of Fairbridge. As Hunter and Luna uncover hidden secrets and navigate the feud between their families, everything around them begins to fall apart. All they can depend on is their love . . . but time is running out, and fate will have its way. An Arrow to the Moon, Emily X.R. Pan's brilliant and ethereal follow-up to The Astonishing Colour of After, is a story about family, love, and the magic and mystery of the moon that connects us all.

teen fiction, 17 y.o. Taiwanese-American star-crossed lovers in the fictional town of Fairbridge, 1991, with magical realism (contains sex and threats of violence/torture).

the family rivalry seems kind of forced and the ending was underwhelming, but otherwise a fun read--chapters are short and fast paced.

Take a whiff of Romeo and Juliet, couple it with an archer worthy of Robin Hood's Merry Men and we're off. Hunter and Luna, two teens whose families detest each other, must deal with strange things creating large cracks and crevices in the roads and woods in their community. Multitudes of fireflies hover around Luna, while Hunter is constantly berated and humiliated by his parents. Still, he's able to hit anything with an arrow. While this isn't exactly a marketable skill in his community, it serves as a great stress management tool.
When circumstances bring the two close, their wariness soon becomes an understanding, then a trust, followed by serious romantic attraction. Meanwhile their families are festering about each other, Luna's parents have her fast tracked to Stanford, completely ignoring her feelings and wants, and Hunter's parents are getting more paranoid by the day.
As the history of both families is revealed, the fallout from an event halfway around the world comes to play a big part in the story as does the appearance of a truly evil bad guy. Meanwhile, Luna and Hunter are trying to figure out how to have a future together. What that future is will surprise most readers as well as giving them plenty to pause and contemplate after they close the cover. ( )
