I like the fact that the characters, especially those of Miranda and her mother, have depth and history. Miranda comes into the story with her own baggage that she's chosen to keep to herself. Her mom has a vast history with her own mother and the island on which the story takes place. I like that there's more to the story than a teenage girl going to a foreign (to her) place and meeting a hot boy. There is so much more going on beneath the surface and you find yourself invested in these characters and their lives.
My only criticism is that there needs to be more. I would love to see what happens after that final ferry ride. I would love to see if Miranda talks to Linda, if her mom continues her rekindled relationships on the island, and of course what happens with Miranda and the people she met on the island. The promise of a future is there...but I'm greedy and I want more. I'd even happily read a sequel or novella!
If you enjoy YA novels, especially those with some family drama, you'll enjoy this book. If you enjoy books with a sense of mystery and a hint at some fantasy lore, you'll enjoy this book.
Another aspect of the novel I enjoyed unraveling was the secrets behind Miranda's grandmother. It was exciting finding out about someone's history that was kept sealed for so many years. My only complaint was unfortunately the ending. It was a good and understandable way of ending the story. However, I wanted something more. I felt like their wasn't any closure since it was left open ended. Overall though, I really enjoyed this tale of romance, secrets and heart-melting discoveries. I recommend this book if you're looking for the perfect book to read on the beach. Trust me, you'll get lost in the story and the background sounds of the crashing waves will be icing on the cake!
