NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST

“Packed with the kind of detail about people, places and emotions that transports the reader.” —San Francisco Chronicle

The introduction, discussion questions, suggested reading list, and author biography that follow are designed to enhance your groups reading of Susan Straights Highwire Moon. We hope they will provide you with interesting ways of talking about this story of a naïve young illegal immigrant, her troubled and feckless Anglo lover, and their daughter, who is separated from her parents at the age of three and thrust into the foster care system. Set in southern California, it is stunning chronicle of lives lived on the fringes of society and of the quest to create a sense of personal identity and value in the face of poverty, fear, and the cruel indifference of those who wield power.
