Title: The Sea of Tranquility
Author: Katja Millay
Genre: YA/Coming of Age
Release Date: November 13, 2012
I loved this book. The intense emotions, the broken characters you can't help but want to mend, the background stories, the clever unraveling of Nastya's story. Everything was absolutely perfect.
Millay rolled out pieces of the characters past at a steady-but sometimes slow-pace. Nastya's story is heart breaking and it was painful to learn what had occurred to her to make her so... secluded.
There are some very intense scenes in this book that sort of mold Nastya into a stronger character. Her value of self-worth drastically increases when she meets Josh because of their quiet connection.
I cried so much while reading The Sea of Tranquility. The characters grew on me and I really connected with them on an adolescent level.
Overall, I'm giving The Sea of Tranquility a 5/5 because this book was flawless and it exerted a lot of emotional reactions from me.
