Longlisted for the 2016 National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
Anna-Marie McLemore's debut novel, The Weight of Feathers, was greeted with rave reviews, a YALSA Morris Award nomination, and spots on multiple "best YA novels" lists. Now McLemore delivers a second stunning and utterly romantic novel, again tinged with magic.
To everyone who knows them, best friends Miel and Sam are as strange as they are inseparable. Roses grow out of Miel's wrist, and rumors say that she spilled out of a water tower when she was five. Sam is known for the moons he paints and hangs in the trees and for how little anyone knows about his life before he and his mother moved to town.
But as odd as everyone considers Miel and Sam, even they stay away from the Bonner girls, four beautiful sisters rumored to be witches. Now they want the roses that grow from Miel's skin, convinced that their scent can make anyone fall in love. And they're willing to use every secret Miel has fought to protect to make sure she gives them up.
Atmospheric, dynamic, and packed with gorgeous prose, When the Moon Was Ours is another winner from this talented author.

Instead, their gender was based upon societal events in the Middle East - women being forced to be men. This didn't sit right with me, it's not up to society to choose how you feel. It's up to you alone.
The magical element of the novel was lacking. I didn't really get the fantasy feel that, I have with other ones of its genre.
I don't think this author is for me. I won't be purchasing their books in future.
This was such wonderfully heartwarming read. I finished it about two weeks ago and I still get that warm fuzzy feeling inside thinking about Sam and Miel. The journey they go on is one of love and loss, of coming of age and self discovery. The writing was so beautiful and dreamlike, it reminded me of Erin Morgenstern and Akwaeke Emezi.
This is in my eyes, the perfect Autumn read, there are four sisters with bright orange hair that own a pumpkin farm. I am not joking when I say that this book is literally drowning in pumpkins and all of the fall vibes that come with.
McLemore’s husband is trans, and that personal experience really shines through in the writing. A review described it as ‘a love letter to her husband’, and that definitely feels accurate. It’s loving and tenderly written, without shying away from important parts of the trans experience like sex and coming out.
Miel is latina and Sam is Pakistani, and the cultures are a solid foundation of the plot in multiple ways. I can’t speak to the accuracy of the representation, but McLemore is latina, so this is #ownvoices.
I really enjoyed this book - at first I tried to work out the metaphors behind certain magical realism choices, but eventually I just settled into enjoying the story for it’s own sake, and really loved it. I think this a story that will reward rereading.
I'm extremely happy that this book exists. I especially liked how the trans boy is written, and the general diversity in a fantastical non-speculative fiction book is very refreshing. I also read the author's note and it's really sweet. I'm not crying, there's just sand in my eye.
Thank you author.
