"The day Farrin meets Sadira, she no longer feels alone. And when the two fifteen-year-old girls become close friends, they dream of a future where they will live together, where they will make something of their lives, and where no one will notice or care that they love each other. But Farrin and Sadira live in Iran under a regime so repressive that it considers homosexuals as deviants who must be eradicated. Unless they learn to hide their relationship from their families and the overzealous school monitor who watches their every move, Farrin and Sadira will never have a future together. And if they are reported to the Revolutionary Guard, only a miracle will save them."--Book jacket.

I loved reading this book, because it really drew in the reader's attention. There was so much action and the ending was amazing. I really recommend this book to anyone who is older than 13 years. It has a very strong message and it really touched my heart.

Moon at Nine by Deborah Ellis is an impactful book that takes place in 1988. This book is about two fifteen-year-old girls, Farrin and Sadira, who fall in love with each other in Iran, where being homosexual results in execution. Farrin, who already holds the secret of her mother's illegal worship towards the Shah, can't take anymore secrets and doesn't hide her love for Sadira. Even though they understand the consequences of being gay in a place that is against the LGBTQ community, Farrin and Sadira openly love each other.
This book is an incredible story that shows the merciless government of Iran when it comes to executing gay people, and also shows how people of the LGBTQ community fight for what is right and love the ones they want to love.
I would rate this book a 5/5 stars.
I recommend this book to readers ages 13 and up.
