Beyond the Bright Sea

Last year, I highly enjoyed reading Wolf Hollow, also by Lauren Wolk and I was looking forward to reading this. Unfortunately, I preferred Wolf Hollow to the author’s new book as there was a lot more action and I enjoy books that have a lot of action. Beyond the Bright Sea is about a twelve year-old girl called Crow, who lives with Osh, who found her washed up on an island off Cuttyhunk, Massachusetts when she was just a few hours old. Crow, Osh and their friend Miss Maggie all set of to discover the truth about Crow’s family. What I did like was the homely feeling that the book created and the family aura as a whole was very heart-warming and I admire how the author mangaged to make such a simple story line into almost three hundred pages, without making it seem boring and ordinary. Finally, I loved the short chapters and the cliff hangers at the end as it made the book easier to digest. Overall, in my opinion this book really shows the true meaning of family.
