Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
Sixteen-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science. . .and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she's happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother's estate.
There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can't make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship. . .and reality.
Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?
Why Read It?
"An evocative setting, an air of mystery and some intriguing love interests for Miranda, a 16-year-old budding scientist, will make Friedman's novel irresistible to romance fans...Movingly and convincingly drawn." - Publishers Weekly
I’ve recommended Sea Change to a few of my friends and they’ve all loved it! This is a loving story for all ages; however it does involve a few of the underage characters in a scene drinking alcohol, which actually isn’t the most suitable thing for maybe a ten-year-old to really be reading about.
I don’t really know what to say except… GO READ IT! Especially if you love The Little Mermaid! (If you liked this… try Teenage Mermaid by Ellen Screibher)
