Summary From Back Of Book: Many are drawn to Selkie Island. Few know why.
When Miranda Merchant, sixteen and levelheaded, escapes her lonely, hot summer in New York City, little does she know what awaits her. She steps of the ferry onto an island rife with legend, lore, and a past her logical mind can’t make sense of it. She isn’t expecting to feel a connection to this unusual place, so filled with languorous charm and strange history.
And when she meets Leo, a mysterious local boy, she finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship, reality…and love.
Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something she never could have imagined?
Review: Sea Change was a fantastic novel! I really liked the main character Miranda, because she is a lot like me. It was a fun interesting novel that at times I really couldn’t put down. The legend and lore of Selkie Island was a lot of fun to read about since I love things like that. One thing that did bother me about Sea Change is that not a lot of questions were resolved at the end of the book. I am also wondering if there will be a sequel because it seems like the story isn’t quite finished. All in all I really enjoyed this novel!
I recommend this book if you like YA novels, romance, and legend and lore.
