The Cure For Everything Is Salt Water –
Sweat, Tears, Or The Sea
Or this books I should add… this is one of the quotes that opens this book and boy, how true it is.
Sea Change was just a beautiful summer read, I seriously thinks it’s the perfect summer read, why? Here’s why:
The book was written in a very simple way, that worked perfectly well, and felt effortless, and the story is not that complicated. Honestly, most of the books I’ve read all have this tangled up mess and they have so much stuff in them. Like this one book I wanted to tell my brother about and I was like: yea, and he’s a vampire but not really, ‘cause he ain’t blowing up with sun, and every moon he changes and then he’s a wizard and then like, Pinky asks The Brain *Squeaky tone of voice* “What are we gonna do today Brain?” and then Brain says: “Same thing we do every night Pinky, try to understand this God Dang book“… Wait, What? Yup… I’m surprised I understood that one…
Even though this story is very predictable, its quite enjoyable. To the point, little drama and to tangled up messes here and there. Miranda – the main character – was really enjoyable, at the beginning she reminded me of those CSI laboratory geeks but Leo – hot fishy guy – (fishy in the good sense of the word) gets her out of her shelf – get it, sea and shelf! Ha! – its official, I’m losing it.
No, but, seriously, other than my craziness, this story is the perfect fit. With a little bit of mystery, funny characters at times, a gorgeous and loving male character and a lovely marine breeze. Besides, who doesn’t like a summer with mermaids? Or should I say merman…
All in all is a good book, though I thinks it’s a present with an untie bow at the ending. I’m really hoping that it will become a series, though I’m not sure. A must-read summer book.
"It struck me then how much the past - not just the past but history and family - was like the ocean tide. It was always the same ocean, but the waves made it fresh and new each time."
