Okay there were definitely flaws in this one But it was such a joy to Have A Uick Fast Paced a uick fast paced Part of that is because it s a book two and there s no reason to set the scene And part of it because it s a book 2 but it s not just a longer version of book 1 Obviously there s a selkie in this one which is pretty clear from almost page one And there s than one pov character And lots of confusion And there s change and rowth and it didn t have to continue in the obvious path with Becca s stepdad What I didn t appreciate was people telling other people who they were and apparently them being right Maybe that happens but it felt hard to accept Going back to Whidbey if only in a book was still a plus 35 of 5 ew Omg I finally finished I started this book in July 2014 and had it sitting on my desk forever unfinished I never really could Boy Soldiers of the Great War: Their Own Stories for the First Time get into it Today I put my foot down I stayed up until 3 in the morning to finish it tooI miving this seuel 2 stars In the first book The Edge of Nowhere we meet Becca a 15 year old Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders girl from San Diego We find out Becca s step father has killed his business partner So Becca and her mom make a run for it Fear that they will be killed as well In their haste to hide Becca s mother drops her off at Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington Tell s her she ll be staying with a friend and she ll come back for her soonThe first book wasreat A bit of mystery A little bit of paranormal abilities This second book was all over the placeThere are so many subplots oing on The main mystery of this seuel was just weird It would have been reat if this supernatural story line was a continuation from the first book The first 250 pages were so slow The build up dragged The secondary characters took too much time away from the main plot I was not impressed I think this is a trilogy wish is unfortunate I of course want to see what happens to Becca in the end but maybe not this year Loved this book read it in one day This book continues the story begun by author George in The Edge of Nowhere Becca King is now living in a treehouse provided by Seth She still remains in hiding from her stepfather She and Derric are officially a couple but Derric is having trouble with the secrets and the Seth thing What are they to each other Why can t Derric know the secrets Seth knows This eventually leads to a breakup and to Derric taking up with Courtney high school it Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age girlOn a side note Jenn McDaniels sworn Becca enemy is trying toet ready for soccer tryouts that will allow her to make a team that will Les Innocents give her a chance at a scholarship so that she canet off the island and I Was A Stranger go to school Those plans are derailed when Annie Taylor marine biologist PhD student shows up and ropes Jenn into helping Annie s interest is a seal named Nera that returns yearly to the area and is all black She wants to prove it s a new kind of seal or aenetic mutation so that her thesis will be star material Jenn and Annie develop a loose but stressed relationship Annie is very different and Jenn finally learns why when Annie reveals that she is bisexual and has a irlfriend back home This eventually leads to Jenn uestioning her own sexuality or rather it being uestioned for her by Annie In the end Jenn is still uestioning Plus Jenn is curious about the strange mute woman who has shown up Where d she come fromAnother side story Derric and Courtney take up with each other after Derric and Becca call it uits Their relationship is fraught with DESIRE from the beginning They both find it increasingly difficult to keep their hands off each other and remain celibate Derric is struggling because he wants intimacy to feel right and be with the right person Courtney because her faith reuires celibacy In the end the pair do indeed have intercourse Derric is unsettled by the whole experience but Courtney believes in cements their relationship for all timeYet another side note Becca has begun working forwith Ivar Thorndyke and Sharla Mann This couple co habitats but are not involved with each other Right away Becca feels that something is off about these two Ivar knows something interesting about the seal that Annie Taylor is so interested in And he is bound and determined to keep everyone away from the seal Through her whispering detection Becca also learns that Sharla is keeping secrets as well When she locates bab.

The Edge of the WaterRe book I don t remember her from the first book which irritated me a little but I was okay with oing along with it Jenn herself is a little tiring in how outright antagonistic she is and her home life didn t seem so bad to justify her behavior but I The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States got use to her fast enough At least her side of the story wasoing somewhere Becca who was the only character I really was invested in seemed to have very little to do in this story and until way into the middle half her perspective is very dull It felt like her story which was all the first book was about was being shunted aside for this less interesting mystery about a seal I will say though that at least she didn t spend her time moping about Derrick That would only have made it worseDerrick s perspective was useless Really the author could have cut all the chapters from his POV and the story would not have been impacted at all It was like she was dying to keep him relevant but had no real way of doing so I feel like his perspective could have been compelling He is part of a very small minority on an island populated by mostly whites and he has a hard time reconciling his life in the States and his life in Uganda All of this would have been a uniue story line to follow one we don t see enough of in YA literature What does the author focus on Sex He wants to have it but when he does it wasn t what he expected It read like some cautionary tale a Christian youth roup would ive does it wasn t what he expected It read like some cautionary tale a Christian youth Gone: The Disappearance of Claudia Lawrence and Her Father's Desperate Search for the Truth group wouldive its students Somehow this all ties into his struggle with identity but to me it was a flat story about not knowing whether you really want to sleep with someone or not What does this have to do with Uganda What does this have to do with Derrick as an actual person with a huge identity crisis Nothing Nothing at all I d say it was the chapters about Derrick that made reading this a chore I see a lot of people don t know what to think about the seal and that s because really there s no one way to feel about it It comes completely out of left field Suddenly everything it about this seal even the characters themselves constantly talk about why everything is about this seal It s an unusual seal the book says over and over That s because it s a selkie which seems so out of place with everything that has been iven to the everything that has been iven to the so far Suddenly we have magic seals Why How does this impact the overall story which if you ve forgotten in all this is Becca trying to hide out from her stepdad I don t even know the answer to that myself I don t think I ve been So Mad About A Seuel mad about a seuel my life I wanted to like it but it just didn t Moonrise (Snowfall, go with the first book at all It s such a shift in focus and direction that it s hard to tolerate I ve never seen a bunch of characters who just don t know anything about themselves about the people around them about where they reoing Every character arc felt like it ended up with IDK I uess I ll figure out at some point If this is suppose to represent teens then it s kind of off the mark I think real teenagers know a lot about themselves than this book will lead you to believe I don t know if I ll bother with the third book and if I do it will only be to see how everything turns out with Becca s stepfather I m certainly hoping there won t be another ridiculous plot about seals or some out of place nonsense I had to throw the towel in on this second book in the author s young adult Whidbey Island series Maybe it s me but it seemed like characters were stereotypes and the dialogue felt forced Would Jenn a poor irl really set up an obstacle course that included a toilet seat Also I didn t Hello, Snow! get why this book started first with the seal Cilla and then with Jenn McDaniels and not Becca King the protagonist of the first book in this series Becca didn t appear until chapter 3 Also it felt like too many storiesoing on the black seal Becca s step dad Becca s on again offf again relationship with Derrick Derrik s relationship with his sister he left behind in Africa Derick s relationship with Courtney the Bible toting A Little Dinner Before the Play girl who likes to do everything but intercourse Jenn s budding sexuality sexting bullying Iave up when Annie the woman who came to study the black seal donned a thong swimming suit and her nipples poked out and she stared openly at Jenn as she undressed It seemed predatoryuncomfortable and out of place What was the premise of this book.
