Title: Sea Change
Author: Aimee Friedman
Publisher: Scholastic (Point)
Note: The review will be short considering I read it a month ago.
The book begins with Miranda, sixteen years old, who has to spend summer in Selkie Island with her newly divorced mother. There she learns about her mother’s unusual past as well as learn about the folklore about mermans that circulate throughout the island.
Oneday, she meets an mysterious boy named Leo. Miranda instantly feels a connection to him and vice versa, resulting in an intense relationship. However, Leo’s mysterious behavior has her questioning his true identity.
The romance aspect of the book was lacking. I thought that Miranda and Leo got together far too quickly and I did not see why exactly they were interested in each other. The great thing about the novel was the use of imagery was perfect. I could envision the beautiful places of Selkie Island.
Overall the book was decent. Something I would recommend for a very quick summer read.
