I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. Bibi was an awesome, easy to like main character. Michael was slightly less easy to like, but as I continued to read this story, he really develops as a character, and you can't help but like him as well.
Now, onto the plot. I don't want to give anything away, but it reminded me of a certain movie that I loved when I was younger. That is really vague, I know, but I don't want to give away a single thing about the plot. You'll love it--that's all I need to say.
Every other chapter alternates between Bibi and Michael. I have to say that I liked Bibi's POV a lot more than Michael's, but I still really liked Michael's. It's just that Bibi was my favorite character in the whole book.
Now, I know that I've been raving about book endings lately, and I don't like to repeat myself, but holy poop! The ending was so amazingly awesome! I was trying not to cry, and then I was trying not to cheer! That's not an exaggeration, I was seriously holding back tears. I feel like there could easily be a sequel how the author ended it, but at the same time it can be a stand alone book as well. It is just so good!
As soon as I finished this, I rushed back to Goodreads because I had to become a fan of Nick Green, and I had to write a review telling people how stupendous this book is. This is the reason that I still buy free books on kindle; because among all the garbage, there's that one treasure. It sounds cheesy, but it's true.
Dysfunctional families, an idyllic setting, the Bermuda Triangle, a touch of magic and mystery, and dolphins - what more could you want? And what dolphins they are too: these feel so very real, not some cute popular ideal of how they should be ...
When Bibi's mum and Michael's dad meet and get married, their offspring are unwillingly thrown together and it's just not working out for them. Bermuda may seem like paradise to Bibi, but Michael is miserable, a fish out of water and missing his friends back in England. When he gatecrashes a fishing outing which Bibi has planned, her irritation with her stepbrother turns into terror when he is caught in a riptide while swimming. His life is saved by a dolphin, but when he recovers consciousness he is different. Are the changes in his behaviour really due to brain damage - or is there something else going on? As events unfold and develop into a life saving race against time, Bibi has to confront some home truths and finally face up to a past tragedy of her own.
To say more would be to give away the plot so I'll say only - go read it yourself. Adults are as likely to enjoy this as younger readers. It is a terrific page turner which plunges you straight into the action from the first lines and keeps up the pace right through to the very end which has an unexpected but satisfactory twist in the tail.
The Storm Bottle is one of those rare books to save and re-read when your spirit needs a bit of a lift. I loved it!
Anyway, it's the perfect start. Girl and her younger step brother go out on a boat with an older guy that's friends (and yes JUST friends) with the girl. before they hit open sea they spot a bottlenose dolphin, which is odd considering wild dolphins don't generally go near the shore. Bibi (the Girl) and Michael (the younger brother), dive into the water and see if they can touch the dolphin. The dolphin takes off and they chase it a bit. Bibi stops and calls for Michael to stop but he ends up in a riptide, with the help of the reappearing dolphin, Bibi gets Michael back to Hal's (the older friend's) boat. One thing the reader must always keep in mind. They're in Bermuda so you know it's about to get interesting in strange ways.
Think of this book like Freaky Firday only with Dolphins! Somehow the dolphin that helped save Michael switched bodies with Michael!
Okay from here on out there will be nothing more about the story, simply because I will not give away any spoilers. The things I commented on aren't spoilers they're in the blurb and synopsis which is what caught my interest to this book back in February when I got it, which was WAY before this review is taking place.
The way this story is written it would make an awesome movie as I stated before, if the write company and screen writers were found to tranform it to screen. This is a wonder story that people of all ages will enjoy especially if they like movies like Nim's Island.
The Bottle Storm will make you laugh as well as cry. Even if it's for younger readers, everyone will love this amazing story. Nick..Read more ›

Very climactic, and action packed. I find myself wishing for a sequel. It is thrilling and mysterious with a tinge of sadness in it.Published on June 13, 2013 by Amazon Customer
