June 14 has always been a special day for Layna Reynolds, but in the year 2014, this day becomes more than simply her birthday. Layna finally turns 17, but this is not the only thing that happens; a huge cover-up takes place and Layna may be one of the only people who really know that what the media feds the public is not the truth… Layna has no idea what she’s up against, but she is determined to find out. All Layna is certain of is that what everyone else is led to believe is not true and that her sister’s boyfriend has something to do with it. In Sixteen Moons, Layna finds herself challenged to uncover the truth behind the so-called ‘unique lunar phenomenon’. In her search for answers, Layna comes face to face with what she never believed to be possible, and the big question is, will she be able to prevent a disaster from happening?
