Marianne Mancusi’s MOONGAZER

I had the great pleasure of meeting Marianne Mancusi (along with Liz Maverick) at RWA this year. They were dressed up as befitting Dorchester’s Shomi line of characters to draw attention to the new line of books. And they looked adorable.

They were both so sweet to talk to, and utterly enthusiastic about their books.

Read more after the jump! You want to…trust me :giggle:

Mari’s new book is releasing soon. Please read all about it, and check it out. It’s a great story for young adults (and old adults too. :giggle:). I’m looking forward to reading it and telling my daughter about it. And my history teacher son, who can tell all his students about it.

Spread the word! So many of our youngsters don’t read or don’t read enough. Let’s find great things that may interest them, like this new line of books! :hips:

Congrats on your book release, Marianne!

MOONGAZER by Marianne Mancusi
Dorchester, August 2007

Imagine every night entering a nightmare world you can’t escape and being told your life is a dream. Skye Brown has it all: the cool job, the hot boyfriend, the apartment on New York’s Upper West Side. But lately she can’t enjoy any of it. She’s having dreams of a post-apocalyptic world. Of a bleak futuristic wasteland. Of a struggle against oppression. And she’s been told she’s a…


But what is that? And what is reality? In her dreams, she’s not Skye Brown at all, but Mariah Quinn. In her dreams there’s Dawn, the beautiful yet haunted soldier, and Skye is but the empty shell of a girl he once loved. And there was a betrayal, a great betrayal. Ripped between Dark Siders and club kids, the mundane and the mystic, Skye must discover who she is, what she wants and who wants her. And why. But in the glow of the moon, it’s not always easy to recognize the face in the mirror.
