Edition Notes: 

This is the advance reading copy of Finding Moon, which is a novel whose main character Moon Mathias sets out on an adventure in Southeast Asia to recover his brother's secret child. Moon finds himself acting as an amateur detective embarking on a journey of self discovery, mystery, and intrigue.

This copy of Finding Moon is the advance reading copy created for review, and the cover gives instruction for the literary reviewers:

    " Reviewers are reminded that changes may be made in this proof copy before books are printed. If any material from the book is quoted in a review, the quotation should be checked against the final bound book."

This edition gives insight into a usually unseen process of promoting a book before publication. An advanced reading copy is the uncorrected proof that is distributed, without charge, to: journalists, book sellers, and celebrities for review and for promotional purposes. This is usually done a half a year in advance of the book release, both so any issues can be corrected and so any celebrity endorsements can be printed on the dust cover.
