Ok, so normally I wouldn't have given this book the chance I did. I was about 30% into it before I started to really like it. The main characters are really angry and hateful and there is little to no dialogue in the beginning. However, I kept reading on because of the amazing reviews I had read. Dialogue between all of the characters shines in this book so as the characters started interacting this was really freaking hard to put down. In the end, I loved it!

Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay.

Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. 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.

Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to.

The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.

This book is currently available for your Kindle, and will be published in the summer if you want the paperback. Either way, keep your eye on it. Read more about it HERE.
