Reader recommendation: The Boy in the Moon

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


The Boy in the Moon, by Ian Brown, is the recounting by a father of the care he and his wife give to their son Walker, who is profoundly disabled. It is disturbing, yes, but also honest, open, and compelling. Real love develops between father and son, though only one can speak. The journey is painful, but it is one worth taking.
