What if your kids woke up tomorrow morning and they no longer had you to help them eat right, get dressed, do homework… or no longer had any parent, grandparent, or older sibling to help them do anything. They were completely on their own, forever. In Night of the Purple Moon, the normal order of life is suddenly thrown into chaos when a much anticipated celestial event turns deadly: bacteria from deep space attacks only those who have passed through puberty, and overnight Earth becomes a planet of children. How will the kids survive?

Description: The epidemic strikes everyone who has passed through puberty.
Abby Leigh is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple. For months, astronomers have been predicting that Earth will pass through the tail of a comet. They say that people will see colorful sunsets and, best of all, a purple moon.
But nobody has predicted the lightning-fast epidemic that sweeps across the planet on the night of the purple moon. The comet brings space dust with it that contains germs that attack human hormones. Older teens and adults die within hours of exposure.
On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her -- adolescence.
Reviews: "I loved this book because of Scott Cramer's writing. He is absolutely wonderful because he has a way of evoking a protective emotion from readers for his characters. I don't remember being this attached since Hunger Games. So many little stories of survival are laced within his work. Mandy, who is brought in much later in the book did this for me. She has such a big story yet it's told in few words. When I found out her terrible secret I gasped because I thought of only the innocence that was lost, both in her and the victim she speaks of. Scott Cramer is a grand author who I hope to read more of."
