Sea by Heidi R. Kling
Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen-year old California girl Sienna Jones reluctantly travels with her psychiatrist father’s volunteer team to six-months post-tsunami Indonesia where she meets the scarred and soulful orphaned boy, Deni, who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.
She knows they can’t be together, so why can’t she stay away from him? And what about her old best friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why won’t her dad tell her the truth about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to finding answers.
And Sea’s real adventure begins.
I was initially intrigued by this book when I saw the absolutely gorgeous cover, and since then, many bloggers have given it high praise, including April of Good Books and Good Wine and Erica of The Book Cellar X (these links will take you straight to their reviews). I trust the opinions of both of these lovely bloggers, so when I heard so much praise for the novel I couldn't resist pre-ordering it. This novel comes out June 10th, so I'll be really excited to read it once it finally gets here. Until then, I'll satisfy myself with the gorgeous trailer.
What are you waiting on this week?
