A powerful tale of magic, love and revenge with a strong female lead set in fairy-tale Japan; this is "Cinderella" meets "Memoirs of a Geisha". Trained in the magical art of shadow-weaving, sixteen-year-old Suzume is able to recreate herself in any form - a fabulous gift for a girl desperate to escape her past. But who is she really? Is she a girl of noble birth living under the tyranny of her mother's new husband, Lord Terayama, or a lowly drudge scraping a living in the ashes of Terayama's kitchens, or Yue, the most beautiful courtesan in the Moonlit Lands? Whatever her true identity, Suzume is destined to capture the heart of a prince - and determined to use his power to destroy Terayama. And nothing will stop her, not even love. The author's debut novel, "The Swan Kingdom", sold over 20,000 copies worldwide. It was chosen as a USBBY Outstanding International Book and was longlisted for the Branford Boase Award. Zoe also recently won a writing grant from the Royal Literary Fund. It is supported by a major marketing and press campaign, including book proof and Ebook for early adopters, author events and dedicated online activity. "Shadows on the Moon" has already won the prestigious Sasakawa prize, an award gifted by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation for outstanding contributions to the promotion of understanding and cooperation between people of Japan and the UK.
