The only redeemable element was the discourse on turtles. Having lived in South Florida and watched this phenomena occurs is indeed breath taking and worth saving. We too had a "turtle lady" that was desperately trying to save the beach front for these awesome creatures. Unfortunately, beach front property is in great demand and though the beaches remain the turtles cannot adapt to the flood of humans. And, there are so many people who think its funny to hop on a turtle or dig up the eggs, I think, many locations will lose their ability to accommodate this beautiful "ritual" at the cost of losing yet another species to extinction.
Overall, this novel was too immature and IMO would not appeal to an adult audience, even as a beach read.
What I liked best: getting an education about the turtles, Cara's rebonding with her mother, and the stories from her youth. We are of course who we are through our childhood stories.
What I liked least: although it was necessary for the story, Palmer, was such an unlikeable man. His same childhood, had like in real like continued he cycle of abusive relationships. He was a bully and an ingrate. But it is what made the story more lifelike.
I would recommend it to others who like reading s out the south, and I look forward to the rest of the trilogy.
