On an early spring night in 1991, Sophie and Crow slip away from a rowdy high school party and sneak off into the woods. Tonight, for the first time, they will make love. An hour later, Sophie lies unconscious, covered with blood, and Crow is crashing through the underbrush, hurling himself into the river to escape the police. Despite Crow's frantic claims of innocence, evidence at the scene suggests his guilt. And Sophie, by now awake in the hospital, refuses to speak, leaving the residents of the couple's seemingly placid Tennessee town to draw their own wildly varying conclusions. With each answer comes a new set of questions. The tragedy reverberates throughout the community, among parents, friends, teachers, and neighbors--all connected to the young lovers, all with a stake in what happens next. As growing suspicions divide the town, a closer look reveals that everyone has something to hide.--From publisher description.… (mere)

The subject was painful to read (a teenager is gang-raped) and parts of the story seemed implausible (rapists turn themselves in). ( )

First of all, this book should be shelved in teen. This reads like a YA book and even covers many YA issues. Also, this book has too many issues in it: rape, marital affair, homosexuality, family issues and guns. The meat of the story is the rape and the other issues were just added for some unknown reason. They certainly did not add to the story. I was intrigued when I started reading the book but it went downhill quite quickly. If you are a reader of Teen Fiction, you may want to pick this one up, if you like good adult fiction, you may want to miss this one. ( )

The book I read was The Slow Moon by Elizabeth Cox. There were two main characters Crow and Sophie. This book is about Sophie getting raped by someone and it's a mystery to the whole town. The town blames Crow for the incident that happened to Sophie. Crow in reality wasn't the one that committed the crime. Crow finds out that the whole town has something to hide. I think the type of people who should read this book is teenagers. I really liked this book because it shows that anything can happen to anyone. The book is 320 pages. It is a easy read and not difficult to understand it. ( )

Very enjoyable. I read this book in one day and loved it. I would recommend it to others. ( )

Perhaps the intended audience for this book is young teenagers and if that's the case, it is probably a good story. However, I found the 'mystery' of who actually committed the crime to be not much of a mystery at all. And, there were so many different themes covered that did not relate to one another (rape, adultery, gay adolescence, parental abandonment, and Yes, even wild monkeys!), I found the story to be unfocused. I guess it could be argued that life is full of different experiences. But for me, "The Slow Moon" was a real sleeper. ( )

So on that April evening in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, with spring just beginning, a copper moon rose, balanced like a huge persimmon, and two young teenagers, Crow Davenport and his girl Sophie, left a party and walked into the woods towards the river to be alone.
