For the children and teens in your family, or for friends, how about a stocking filled with books. So nice for those cold, snowy winter days when they can’t get outside to play.

Children’s Literary Classics Silver Winner, For middle-grade readers, 9 to 12.
AMAZON and other places (for some reason this link isn’t working either. I don’t know why.)
Eden Rose has learned to deal with her mother’s criticism that she can do nothing right. What she can’t deal with are the arguments between her parents. To escape their angry words, she finds refuge in an old abandoned house. She always returns home, hoping her mother will love her one day, even though Eden’s not sure what the word love means.
Three other teens with problems also hang out at the Old House. Meeting Murphy, Toby, and Josh changes Eden’s world, and she begins to have faith in herself. Perhaps she can do something right, after all.
Thanks to the boys, she begins to understand the meaning of love. But will it be enough to save her broken home life?
Some really nice reviews are coming in. Here are a few snippets.
Under a Purple Moon is a book about friendship, and in particular, about one young girl who comes to accept her own self-worth. Author Beverly Stowe McClure has done a splendid job depicting the wide and varied range of emotions experienced by Eden and her friends. Under a Purple Moon is a book which young readers will find to be very relatable.

McClure’s story makes you feel for each of these kids, and you pull for them as they struggle to make their lives whole. Many teen readers will connect with these characters and how they create a family for themselves. C. Lee McKenzie
This is an exceptionally well-written book, filled with painful truths about growing up, but also the joys of young love, anticipation, and the excitement of conquering new challenges. I loved the writing style, enjoyed the deep characterizations, and felt the ending was believable and satisfying. The author did a great job, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. Highly recommended! Laura
