I enjoyed this book very much. When I got to the last third of the book, I couldn’t put it down. For a book so rich in detail, never once did I tire of it. The author did a great job of connecting the life of the marsh to Kya. Her life moving and changing with the tides. The way they wrote her loneliness truly came to life. I found myself really rooting for her.
The secondary characters woven into the novel were just as lovely – from Jumpin’ to the Gulls. The anchor they served in this young girl’s life was very well told.
The ending was unexpected. I’m not sure if I liked it or not. I really wanted her mother’s family to make an appearance in her time of need. I almost expected her father to make an appearance. And I was sad that Tate was left with a different impression of her in the end.
But still, great read! I want to own this book. There were so many passages I wanted to read and highlight. So I’ll be adding this one to my bookcase.
