Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can't make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship. . .and reality.
Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?
This book really wasn't my thing. I like paranormals, and I like romances, but this book had none of the paranormal that I was expecting, and the romance seemed kind of stilted at times. Other times it was great, but that doesn't make up for the stiltedness. Leo and Miranda were okay I guess, but they really never got out of their awkward phase (the first phase of a relationship).Not one of the questions asked throughout the book got answered. Is Leo a merman? Is Miranda part mermaid? Who is the Sailor Hat guy? The list goes on and on. The story was okay, and it helped that it was raining when I read it, but I won't be remembering this book as a favorite. There was too many loose ends that never got tied up, and I just can't handle that in a book.
