Review for Sea by Heidi R. Kling

I first noticed this book on a lot of people’s book blogs. It has rave reviews so without really knowing that much about it I added it to my wish list to be brought at a later date. However I kept seeing this book everywhere! So intrigued I decided to read what it was about and after finding out I ordered this book straight away because it felt a little bit like fate that I kept crossing paths with it. Still haunted by nightmares of her mother’s death, fifteen-year-old Sienna Jones reluctantly travels to Indonesia with her father’s relief team to help tsunami orphans with their post traumatic stress disorder—something Sienna knows a lot about. Since her mother’s plane went missing over the Indian Ocean three years before, Sienna doesn’t do anything if it involves the ocean or planes, so this trip is a big step forward. But the last thing she expects is to fall for Deni, a brooding Indonesian boy who lives at the orphanage, and just so happens to be HOT. When Deni hears a rumour that his father may be alive, Sienna doesn’t think twice about running away with him to the epicenter of the disaster. Unfortunately, what they find there could break both their hearts. A compelling summer romance, Sea marks the arrival of a stunning new voice in YA. This book is about PTSD and fears which is something I myself have been diagnosed with, so I related to this book in so many ways and I absolutely loved it one of my very favourites so far this year. It’s rich with culture. It’s well written, and is original and beautiful. I read some parts with tears in my eyes and I loved watching Sienna grow through out the book. The way everything tied in with the sea I thought was very clever and I will be recommending this book to everybody this summer. I’ll definitely be looking out for more of Heidi’s work. 5 stars. My Rating 5/5 stars *****
