Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
“Sixteen-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science. . .and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she’s happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother’s estate.There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can’t make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship. . .and reality.
Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?” – Goodreads
My Opinion: This book was amazing. I hope that Aimee Friedman writes a sequel to this book!
This is a story about a girl named Miranda and how she goes to visit Selkie Island. There she meets a boy named Leo. But Miranda holds herself back because she is a logical/facts kinda girl. She holds herself back because this is occurring on Selkie Island where there are stories on mermaids and mermen and sea monsters like the Kraken. The thing that holds her back is that she is getting suspicious Leo is a merman. Only that’s not possible, right?
I really liked that Miranda doesn’t follow the crowd on the island and branches out to the locals. I also really liked that she stood up for herself and didn’t get trapped like her mom with one of her former friends when they come to the island. She makes a couple of mistakes on the way but that is only because she tries to fit in, and that makes her easy to relate to.
Besides look at the cover, its perfection.
Overall: 5 out of 5
