Escaping into the nearby mountains from the mysterious man who had abducted her, a young amnesiac joins forces with fourteen-year-old Mary Dark Hope to find and confront the evil man she calls "Daddy"--before he can find her first

Blackwell North Amer
She does not know who she is, where she's from, how she got here. She wakes one morning in a bed-and-breakfast alone. She is told by the owner she came in "dead asleep" with her father.
But she knows the man is not her father. She takes her backpack, bedroll, and the wad of money she finds in his jacket and heads for the mountains, seeing in their bleak and towering landscape some kind of safety.
Months later, she walks down from the mountains and into the life of fourteen-year-old Mary Dark Hope. Bound by their lack of family, their murky pasts, their affinity for animals, they set out to find the man who abducted her. Whitewater rafting, canned hunts, molestation, and murder - all move toward an inevitable and harrowing confrontation.

Biting the Moon takes a 14 year old character from a Richard Jury novel (Mary Dark Hope) and gives her an adventure all her own that involves murder, both human and animal and a amnesia victim friend.

Animal rights is a major theme.

A quick read that's enjoyable.
