SET IN THE 1960S and filled with beautifully captured moments of nostalgia, Shoot the Moon (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) is a heartfelt novel from Isa Arsén, a love letter to the Southwest inspired by childhood summers she spent in northern New Mexico and the borderlands of El Paso, Texas. Annie Fisk’s relentless drive for knowledge of space knows no bounds as she and her NASA colleagues attempt to beat the Soviets to the moon. She soon discovers an anomaly that changes everything she knows to be scientifically true. Covering love and loss in all forms, Shoot the Moon moves seamlessly through time while navigating mid-century memories of Albuquerque and Santa Fe. This compelling read will leave you starry-eyed and hungry for answers.
