I don’t know, but I feel like the general portrayal of the male gender was too extreme. You deserve it, girl! The emotional punch took a while to build, but when it hit, it was huge and powerful and took my breath away. The resignation and grief, the guilt and self-hatred. The whole name is a lie.
This is going to be so much fun! And she dates your son’s best friend?
These are Just some of but not all of my descriptions of this book. Do you want me to say it again?
The Sea of Tranquility
It seems like the more my body healed, the more fractured kayja mind became, and there aren’t enough wires and screws to fix the breaks in it. And it’s definitely why, she tells herself, she’s drawn to Josh Bennett, a boy who is so alone on his regular lunch-time courtyard bench that she wonders if he’s a ghost, and that no one goes near him because the bench is haunted.
But she was a strong and brave girl too. It’s bright and warm and happy. It’s dramatic, yet ultimately inspiring.

No one knows what hand they will be dealt in life. But it was awesome! He has suffered great loss and has been wrapped in a social bandaid of denial by the terrified people around him who ignorantly believe that what they ignore cannot exist Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Nastya, still silent, has an incredible journey to make, and unfortunately she wants no part of it.
I mean, had she been in the “I never ever talk” situation, then okay. But in the book, there were way too many reasons. He seems immensely disturbed by the fact that I even exist, much less occupy the same space in his precious shop class. The NA genre could use more authors like her.

And Drew is all kinds of charm, and he knows it I’m afraid of everything else. Josh comes complete with his own set of tragic events. I seriously considered leaving the rating blank because The Sea of Tranquility isn’t something that can easily be summed up in stars, my feelings for it are much more complex than that. There is so much attention to plot, diction, and character development that I am fairly astounded that this author hasn’t really written anything else.
Nastya is a believable, likeable heroine. Nastya, of course, doesn’t try to hook up with all the hot guys so she is also a morally superior being in Josh’s eyes. To keep her identity a mystery to others, she’s moved to a city two hours away from where tragedy struck and effectively ended her life. The characters were probably the most realistic I have ever come across and broke my heart and put it back together again.

You don’t just stop talking to her or start avoiding looking at her. One of my favorite books ever. This is a standard contemporary YA romance. She will make you read and re-read paragraph after paragraph, she will make you happy, she will make you sad, she will make you love her style The pdf file I have for this book is pages long.
Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space. My heart broke, my lungs burned, my eyes stung, my nose ran like tranquilitu faucet. All those characters, and I katna mean all of them, are explicitely described as being gorgeous. It loses all its charm!
