Cover of MOON AT NINE by Deborah Ellis

BOOK JACKET BLURB: The day Farrin meets Sadira, she no longer feels alone. And when the two fifteen-year-old girls become close friends, they dream of a future where they will live together, where they will make something of their lives, and where no one will notice or care that they love each other. But Farrin and Sadira live in Iran under a regime so repressive that it considers homosexuals as deviants who must be eradicated. Unless they learn to hide their relationship from their families and the overzealous school monitor who watches their every move, Farrin and Sadira will never have a future together. And if they are reported to the Revolutionary Guard, only a miracle will save them.

A powerful story of friendship, love, and hope in the face of impossible odds, Moon at Nine illuminates Iran’s human rights violations and horrific treatment of homosexuals, which continue to this day.
