“Siobhan Curham has created a new-and-improved Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants… not only celebrates friendship, but encourages thought and discussion.”
Booknut, blogger

“Do yourselves a favour and pick up this series as it is honestly just so beautiful and relevant to our everyday lives! Its inspirational wisdom will lead you to follow your own dreams.”
Pocket Full of Pages, blogger

“… Addictive read for teens that, on the surface, looks fairly light fare, but actually deals with some difficult and very relevant issues.”
Booksellers NZ

“Highly recommended. This is perhaps one of the best books for adolescent girls I have read in a long time. I really wish I’d read it growing up.”

Jazz and her parents have just moved to Brighton from Sydney, so that Jazz’s dad can pursue his career as a music producer. Jazz is finding it difficult to fit into her new school, and her love of surfing seems destined to be quashed for ever. Not only do Brighton’s beaches have stones instead of sand and water that is downright freezing, but there doesn’t seem to be a surfboard in sight. When she meets her older cousin, Amber, at a family dinner in London Amber senses Jazz’s unhappiness and tells her about the Moonlight Dreamers, a secret society of likeminded friends that she’d founded years earlier. Amber suggests that Jazz seek out a group of soulmates too and form her own Moonlight Dreamers.

At first Jazz is wary, but then decides to leave postcards for prospective soulmates, just as her cousin had. And so a new group of Moonlight Dreamers is born. Allegra, Hope, Portia and Jazz may be very different but they soon become firm friends who are always there for one another. They listen to each other’s problems and support each other’s hopes – and help them make their dreams come true.
