Synopsis

I am Luna van Wyk. A 14 year old girl. This is the story of Mignon “Mossie” Van Wyk, my older sister. Oh and her best friend Adriaan Prinsloo, who I think she should marry. But that’s just me. For some weird reason Mossie falls in love with older guys – enter Leon Rossouw – obviously without a shirt.

This is a story about love, naturally, but it’s more about being a teenager and how rough life can be.

It’s a story about monsters and running shoes.

About letting go and holding on.

About friendship.

It’s a story about my sister and how she learns to fly.
