In The Moon by Night, we find the Austin children - Vicky, John, Suzy, and Rob - unhappy at the prospect of leaving their beloved Connecticut house and moving into an apartment in New York City. In order to cushion the change, the Austin parents decide to take the whole family on a trip to California to visit Uncle Douglas and Aunt Elena.

They'll drive out to California, camping along the way, and avoid hotels as much as possible. There is a great deal of care spent getting just the right equipment for the trip, and off the family starts. It is a marvelous trip - different, exciting, fun. But the trip also brings problems to everyone in the family, and especially to Vicky when she meets Zachary. He's a troubled and troubling boy who, against the wishes of her family, attaches himself to Vicky. How Vicky meets the challenges of the trip and of her interest in Zachary and in another boy, Andy, who becomes Zachary's rival, make up the body of this warmly appealing story of family life.

    " I vividly remember this book even though I last read it 25+ years ago. As a young reader, I liked being on the cross-country road trip with Vicky Austin and her family and will never forget the two very different boys she meets and how they rival for her affections. These books had a depth that very few books for adolescent girls had at the time (and possibly today). "
