Breathtaking Debut
5 stars By Iola, Feb 24 2014
As I was reading, I was trying to decide whether or not Like Moonlight at Low Tide was actually Christian fiction. Missy wasn't a Christian, her mother certainly wasn't, and it didn't seem that any of her friends were either. It wasn't until quite late in the book that the Christian element started to come through, but it was worth waiting for. 
"When I was seventeen, the only boy who ever called me by my full name took his own life. It was the first time I ever saw a mistake that couldn't be undone."
Yes, this novel is different. It's written in the first person, and Missy is a complex character growing up in a difficult environment. It's gritty and real, yet with a bittersweet aftertaste, as though things shouldn't be like this. 
Like Moonlight at Low Tide is the debut novel from Nicole Quigley, and shows she is a voice to watch in Christian fiction for her edgy realism. Recommended.
