A Face in the Moon Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Face in the Moon

The narrator, Jack Lohman, is an inexperienced twenty-two-year old, who was recently dumped by his first real girlfriend, and is soon to leave graduate school for who knows what. Enter Loni, a bright-eyed, free-spirited seventeen-year old who has had more than her share of experience -- she lost her virginity on her fourteenth birthday, has had more boyfriends and drugs than she cares to remember, as well as a nervous breakdown that she's trying her best to forget. From the moment Jack meets Loni, his life begins to change. She teaches him how to laugh, and makes him feel, for perhaps the first time in his life, that he can be loved without judgment. Yet, ironically, it is Loni's harsh self-evaluation that paralyzes her at times, turning the carefree, uninhibited woman/child into a speechless, listless teenager who laments the days when life used to be more fun.


A FACE IN THE MOON is a story about two young lovers struggling to find each other and their ways in the world. And when a series of events keeps them apart longer than expected it becomes the story of whether their new love can survive the pressures of separation and madness.
