All of the characters were so well-written and the reader connects with them. I was so happy when I found out this was only the first book of a trilogy! Would I recommend it: Simply put: Get the book and read it. It was a great read that I could not put down. Will I read it again: I probably will not but it all depends on when the second book comes out. Abby Leigh is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple. For months, astronomers have been predicting that Earth will pass through the tail of a comet. They say that people will see colorful sunsets and, best of all, a purple moon. But nobody has predicted the lightning-fast epidemic that sweeps across the planet on the night of the purple moon.
The comet brings space dust with it that contains germs that attack human hormones. Older teens and adults die within hours of exposure. On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her — adolescence.

With this as my high level plot, I then had a chance to create some characters that would face impossible odds. To let them struggle and either fail or succeed is usually what makes a good story.

In one sentence, why should we read your book? It is a story with some very dark moments that is also about hope and faith and never giving up. What is your favorite genre to read? Who are some of your favorite authors?
I am a slow reader. I am in awe of book bloggers and voracious readers who read many books. I am also proud to say that I have read many genres, including Russian novels.
Review: Night of the Purple Moon (The Toucan Trilogy #1) by Scott Cramer (interview)
I went through a science fiction phase, a murder mystery phase, a biography and autobiography phase, a history phase, a Cormac McCarthy phase, a Henry Miller phase, a beat generation phase, an Ernest Hemingway phase, and a phase of big fat thrillers. My favorite authors tend to be the ones who write simple sentences. Which of these was the most interesting and why? My job as dishwasher was not the most exciting but I left the position as a legend.
I worked as a dishwasher on Cape Cod. Home was a peaceful cottage in the woods where I slept on the floor next to the fireplace, kept warm by a DuraFlame log. They were a hungry, good-natured bunch and they never cleared out until at least 2 a. One Saturday evening the cook got sick and went home.

Night of the Purple Moon (The Toucan Trilogy, Book 1) by Scott Cramer | Book Barbarian
Facebook Twitter Google. When thirteen-year-old Abby Leigh wakes up in the morning after the arrival of the comet, she finds her father dead, leaving her, her twelve-year-old brother, and her two-year-old sister alone stranded on remote Castine Island off the coast of Maine with the sky still shrouded in purple haze.
Kevin and Emily, the neighbor kids from across the street arrive on their doorstep with the same story of finding their parents suddenly dead. A search of the internet uncovers a note on the CDC website saying that everyone over the age of puberty has been killed by a germ carried by the comet except for several quarantined groups of scientists. The scientists broadcast daily updates on the radio of their progress in finding a cure. Meanwhile, Abby, her brother Jordan, and sister Toucan, along with the two neighbor kids band together with a group of children also from their school and start a small farm, learning to work together to survive being on their own until a cure can be found.
But as the days turn into months, the children grow up and some enter puberty and with it, a death sentence, with Abby herself one of the eldest in the group.

Comments: With a name like "Toucan Trilogy" and one of the characters constantly being referred to as "Toucan", I worried that this story would be too young for my tastes. While the characters are supposed to be young, the main character Abby seemed far older than her years, acting as practically a constantly worrying mother to her younger siblings. The story itself was somber, deep, often depressing definitely not a light pick-me-up pieces , bleak though it did have an edge of hope to it and strength.
