One Plus One incorporates all things Moyes is excellent at. With a main character you can't help but love and feel bad for aside a main character you want to smack across the face, you'll laugh the entire way through. Don't worry, though, because these dynamic relationships are much more than just laughs. Moyes has many enticing books, but this one takes complexity, love, and life's journeys to a whole new level.

Availability: Special Order
Published: Haymarket Books - May 19th, 2015

This book is action packed. A page turner in which some beloved characters redeem themselves, some perish while evil characters ebb and flow in triumph and despair too. This has to be the most entertaining part of the book: the way that Jacques is able to deliver a story that is devastating, and yet in the end, hopeful. It is a strong testament to the fantasy novel, especially one made for kids of all ages. There are battles and strategy and adventure; everything needed to keep a kid entertained and looking for more to read.
