What’s On My Book Radar?
BEYOND THE BRIGHT SEA by Lauren Wolk
I am really drawn to the nostalgic fiction that Lauren Wolk creates from captivating characters and luscious settings. In Beyond the Bright Sea,we meet Crow, a 12 year old girl who washed up on the shore of an island as in infant. She and Osh, a loner who rescued her, have built a life together. But Crow is curious about her past and rumors that she may have been born on a leper colony on the now abandoned island of Penikese. She spots a fire one night on the island that signals the beginning of a chain of events which threaten her life with Osh. A story of hope, hazards, and heroism that will stay with you after you close the book.
