Praise for How the Deer Moon Hungers
"Vivid characters, a disarming storyline and gratifying ending. What more could a reader want? Everything that can go wrong in Mac’s life does—her parents divorce, her sister dies, and she’s arrested for something she didn’t do. She has to learn how to assimilate it, learn from it, and move forward. But that won’t be easy.” ―Terry Persun, Amazon Bestseller
“In Susan Wingate’s novel How the Deer Moon Hungers, the hidden horrors of juvenile detention facilities are exposed. ―Foreword Clarion Reviews – 5-Stars
“Wingate weaves a yarn that is absorbing, balanced, and deft.” ―The Book Commentary
“I would strongly recommend this book to people in their late teens and upward.”
―Jo Niederhoff, San Francisco Book Review
“Susan Wingate is gifted at capturing these shifting nuances as events continue to pull characters apart and put them back together like puzzles, albeit in a different way. HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS carries the reader through this process, creating a powerful and memorable saga that is hard to put down and lingers in the mind long after the story is over." ―Diane Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review
“An amazing story!” —Kathryn Lane, Award-winning author of the Nikki Garcia thriller series
For those who love reading books like Where the Crawdads Sing and My Sister's Keeper. HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS is book club fiction.
