About the Author

I grew up in New England and loved living by the ocean, but I currently reside in Northeast Ohio with my loving husband, Danny, our cat Cassi and our three wonderful dogs, Bailey, Madison and Emma. I have a Master of Science in Criminal Justice and love working in the criminal justice field, but my passion has always been reading. I learned to read at a very young age and have always believed it to be a driving force that truly shaped my life. Through my love of reading, I found a love for writing... short stories, poetry, and now my first series of Young Adult novels, The Harvest Series.

This book is the kind of book you don't want to put down. It has so many twists and turns which keeps a book interesting and very entertaining! I am not a reader at all, but once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down I was reading in between classes at school and on break at work. Whenever I had time to do anything I would read this book! I can't wait for the second book I'm very excited to see where Lexi goes and what journey she takes. The author of this book is very intelligent and loving. You can tell through her work what her life has been like and how it has shaped her as a person. The lesson I get from Megan is to never give up and do what is right for you no matter what other people may think. Megan is a very strong and compassionate writer and loves her work which makes the book personal and people can really connect to the story. I really enjoy this book and can't wait to read more!

I LOVED this book!! 10 Stars. What a fabulous debut novel for this up and coming author.  The storyline and characters were very real and very believable. We hear about these kinds of situations all the time, but when you read the raw emotions from the victim's point of view, you feel something you didn't expect. The details and descriptions of people and places was wonderfully done. I loved all of Lexie's friends. Caitlin was my favorite and I hope we get to lots more of her.  I am really looking forward to the next book in this series. Does anyone know when it's supposed to come out?  If you like real-life, edgy YA, dealing with difficult issues, you will LOVE Harvest Moon too. I highly recommend it to anyone!!

The cover is nice and straight to the point. It reflects on the book and story line. The Characters are good and well described. There are quite a few characters in this book yet you don't feel overwhelmed with them or information. They are introduced at their own pace and you get to know them easily.      Angela is Lexie's older sister by 3 years. Although they are sisters and they are very alike, they are also very different. They look alike and both have light brown hair with light skin but Lexie had freckles where Angela didn't and Angela was an outgoing secure girly girl where Lexie was more of an insecure tomboy. It's amazing what these girls go through.      Maya is Lexie's best friend from childhood with long blonde hair and big blue eyes. She is dainty and elegant but also a tomboy. In the book she comes across as caring and loving but also at the same time selfish and insensitive to Lexie's needs.     Caitlin was Lexies friend and the younger sister of Angela's best friend. She is brilliant and determined, level headed and optimistic. She's tall, with short dark brown hair and naturally beautiful with olive skin. She is pure and natural in all ways, understanding and sympathetic  and the kind of friend any mother would want for their daughter.    Ben... Finally we meet Ben and what an introduction.. I like Ben but have to keep in mind his age because sometimes he comes across (in my mind) as a little older. The story is captivating right from the start. There are times when I almost wanted to skim read because it was dragging a little bit but I didn't, I was afraid I would miss something important lol. It was an emotional ride and crazy what these 2 girls had to deal with at such a young age. Lexie is so very strong and brave and I get that she feels the need to protect those around her but her strength is also her biggest weakness.     I like the way the story bounces between past ad present and isn't at all confusing. I never once had to look back and check something. I did find though that going through the story that the more I got involved and pulled in, the more I lost the vision of her friends. I forgot what they looked like and couldn't picture them in my mind anymore.      The part in the book where she explains everything in front of her friends is amazing. I can feel the emotion and I can actually feel the weight lifted off my shoulders. It's great how the story can pull you in like that.    The one part of the book I can not grasp is the reason her parents were the way they were. They kept saying they never wanted them but yet it never revealed why. I wish there was more insight into that part of the history. Also I don't understand how she can simply overlook what her doctor told her, how do you simply ignore that? The Writing Style was easy to follow and like I said, I love the way it skipped from past to present and back again. Nicely done and and easy read.  Would I recommend this book or series...I sure would. It's a great read and brings out so many emotions. I actually found myself at one part almost yelling into the book lol. I didn't want to read further yet at the same tie I had to because I had to know what happened.   This is a great book for anyone over the age of 13. There is some romance and sex in it but nothing descriptive or offensive.

 I couldn't stop reading! The story just pulled me in as it made me think about my own teenage years. The characters were well thought out and relatable and I can't wait for the next story in the series to be released!
