"As if simply being fourteen-years-old weren't bad enough -- what with the usual teenage angst and uncertainty, Vicky Austin's always comforting and reliable home life is changing completely. Her brother John is going off to college in the fall. Maggy, an orphan taken in by the Austins two years ago, has gone to live with her legal guardian. And the rest of Vicky's family is moving from their quiet house in the country to the heart of New York City. But before the big move, the entire Austin family is taking a meandering trip across the country in their station wagon, stopping to camp along the way, with no set schedule and not a single night of camping experience among them. Wild animal attacks. Life-threatening natural disasters. Cute boys on the prowl. Anything can happen in the great outdoors"--P. [4] of cover.… (més)

I might have enjoyed this second book in the Austin Family Chronicles even more than the first. The Austins are about to move to New York City, but first they are taking a cross-country camping trip to see the country and visit friends and relatives. The story comes through the perspective of Vicky, second oldest of the Austin children as she begins to itch a bit at the confines of family, begins to have interest in boys, and discovers more about who she is. Sometimes slightly dated in some attitudes, but not enough to be terribly bothersome, though of course that is YMMV. More annoying is the boy who won't leave Vicky alone. We're supposed to think he's kind of okay despite being... not all that okay, and that was the hardest thing to sit with for me. ( )

In this book we first meet Zachary who we persist in messing with various heroines for book upon book. In general this book is very straightforward except for the rather bizarre ending. Overall a good read. ( )

An interesting examination of teenaged angst, but shadowed by the worst "bad boy" in all of literature. No, really. Zachary Grey is legit the worst. I fully believe Christian Grey was named for Zachary, that's how terrible he is as a character. ( )

This series hasn’t aged particularly well, unfortunately, but I’m attached to the characters from the other books I’ve read in this series (especially The Ring of Endless Light) and still want to finish the rest of the series. The Moon by Night follows the Austin family as they take a road trip across the US, spending the night in campgrounds and seeing different states and meeting different people. It was fun to see how Vicky first met Zachary and reading it knowing where their relationship goes.

Vicky is a relatable main character and is very focused on finding her place in the world; she feels like everyone around her knows what they’re doing and she feels a bit lost as to what she wants to do, which I think is very typical for being fourteen. Mostly, I enjoyed this book for showing what camping and a family vacation would be like in the 60’s.

This story doesn’t have any fantasy elements like L’Engle’s other works sometimes do, but it was still interesting to read about familiar characters. It’s not a book I would recommend anyone to just read if you aren’t already invested in the Austin family; if you are, then this will most likely be enjoyable if not super thrilling.

This gentle book is an excellent one, provided you understand it is rooted in its time period. There are certainly cultural things (the father being in charge, the fears of a nuclear war) that make it clear when it was written. That said, it still speaks to me now.

Young Vicky Austin is now 14, and learning just who she is. She discovers, "You have to go off by yourself or you just stop being you, and after all I was just beginning to be me." And that in some ways is the theme of the book. Who are you and how do you know? And what happens when you meet someone different, not the same ethically as you?

I enjoyed the tour across the country, especially the descriptions of the Palo Duro Canyon, not far from where I live now. I also enjoyed the philosophical passages in the book. It was exactly what I needed to take a break from my hectic real-world life.

Thoughtful young teens would enjoy this book. Adults who still remember what it was like to be 14 and who enjoy philosophy would like it, too. ( )
