Sea Change by: Aimee Friedman

Sea Change'Sea Change' by: Aimee Friedman was absolutely amazing. I loved how the characters interacted with one another, how there was a divided because of social status and money, and how a person can learn to trust again. It is one of my favorites, and probably in my top 30.
It is basically about sixteen year old Miranda moving Selkie Island and starting her life there, but there are certain unspoken rules that you have to follow. You can not talk to anyone below your status, they have to be successful and rich, and most of all DO NOT GO TO THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN ....... things happen there and you never know what criminals and weirdos live there.

As Miranda learns how to live and be free, she tries to find the answer to some weird things that have been happening there. As she is getting closer to finding her answers, she begins to wonder who is really right, what are they hiding, and will she ever be able to love again.

I give this book a 5 out of 5.

Here is the blurb for 'Sea Change' by: Aimee Friedman:
Sixteen-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science. . .and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she's happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother's estate.
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?
