Dear Katja Millay: Sea of Tranquility is about a high school senior who moves in with her aunt about two hours from her hometown. Her transfer. This book knocked me out. The author reminds me of Melina Marchetta in the way she manages to make the characters so real and so affecting.

But it’s important to know that 3 stars isn’t really accurate at a Oh my god, I just kstja know what to say about this book. I find it fascinating when a story can create conflicting emotions simultaneously; I was incredibly somber, yet so hopeful and even happy.

And the not-talking was just badly tranquiluty, because being with someone who refuses to talk is just so genuinely awkward and here it never really is.
And anyone who is wondering Although he comes off as just a charmer, he really does have a good heart. That sounds suspiciously like victim blaming bullshit to me. This book knocked me out. First off, I think the author took too much time to finally spill it.
This is obviously a matter of taste and perhaps your eyes are filling up right now when you read that. Last night’s dinner, the charred remains of my dignity, and apparently, now, my undergarments, too.
The words defined romance and the characters touched my heart. Do millayy know why? To say this book broke me would be an understatement. Uh mlllay, yep, bad things can still happen fast.

They are just trying to move through the motions and figure out where they fit in with the fucked up world that they’re forced to live in. Everything that came out of his mouth was pure torture and pain mixed with regret and loss and love. I don’t buy it.

All they know is that she wears clothes too tight, too short, always has her hair around her face, and a thick coat of “black shit” constantly rimming her eyes to hide anyone knowing or wanting to figure her out Nastya, still silent, has an incredible journey to make, and unfortunately she wants no part of it.
I live in a world without magic or miracles. This of course makes sense when you learn his favorite class at school is shop. To keep her identity a mystery to others, she’s moved to a city two hours away from where tragedy struck and effectively ended her life.
Both sound virtually identical. Former piano prodigy Nastya Kash I live in a world without magic or miracles. Wow amazing Def one of my favourite books this year…Congrats Katja and Maryse x. I personally think it’s just barely average. Once she enters his world, there’s no going back.
Evil’s resourceful that way. I was thrilled to be given this opportunity, but when I saw what was in the top left corner of the book cover…. And we’re supposed to be okay with that? It’s the height of immature teenage girlishness.

She practically pushes her way in to his life whether he wants her in it or not.
