Saltwater Moons

He fact she continues to exchange poems with her boyfriend's best mate It's a story about love and betrayal about constantly longing for the things we can't ha. I love this story It feels honest and real and doesn t hide the hard bits of being a teenager and facing some of the things that happen I really connected with the characters and I care about Sun throughout the whole story and while I sometimes uestion her choices they are her choices to make and her conseuences to deal with and I am happy to go on the journey with her I don t like Mark but I also don t dislike Mark and I do love her best friend Nicky Then there is Tycho he was the almost silent constant and I was very happy to get to read the coda at the end it brought Tycho to the forefront So much of the story feels bittersweet but at the end I was left feeling completely at peace and satisfied

In the beginning it seems so simple A poem in the mail A weekend invitation to the coast But when Sun says yes to a midnight walk her life becomes suddenly com. I want to go visit Australia I don t know if everyone lives by the ocean and eats olive pat and uince paste and puts grapes in their salads or serves lime blossom tea with honey but I d really like to find out Saltwater Moons certainly makes Melbourne seem like a beautiful place to live Sunday is visiting her crush Tycho s parents house on the coast and she is drawn to romantic lure of surf and sand and moonlight as well as increasingly attracted to the boy who invited her One night when he s acting distant however she finds herself headed down a path she never expectedand the conseuences of her choice resonate with all the people she cares about the mostSun is a very typical teenager She feels intense emotions ranging from the dizzy excitement of being attracted to two boys as well as the all consuming anger and pain of being rejected She s also unsure of herself confused by what to make of mixed signals reckless headstrong and deceptive Honestly sometimes it was really hard to sympathize with her because some of the choices she makes are so hurtful and careless and clearly deliberately done in retaliation for her own insecurity But this is said as an adult with 2020 hindsight Most of Sunday s actions and reactions feel emotionally true to that heedless period in your life when it seems as if the world might end if you don t act uickly and get those emotions out of your system nowI find it really hard to get over her behavior towards her friend Nicky however And I am upset that any girl would exchange letters and poems with a boy do kids really do this who s so darned nice to her but still seesaws so wildly in her affections with him But again none of this is unbelievable or hard to imagine in fact it s far too easy to remember the urge to act just this way I m just not sure how much I actually enjoy reading about stuff like this as I tend to like my escapist YA fiction to be infused with a little joy and a little happinessI m probably in the minority on that front however The writing is very appealing and I m sure that the angsty premise will be very relatable to many other readers who may enjoy this a little than I did I m still awarding it 3 stars for the prose as well as the painfully realistic emotions of what it feels like to be a teenagerMy heartfelt thanks to Missie and Nic for sending this book along as part of the Go Aussie Book Tour I really appreciate having the opportunity to read such great Australian YA literature thanks to their generosity So many of these titles will never make it to the US or will take years to get here so it s wonderful to be exposed to authors we might otherwise never find

Plicated Saltwater Moons tells the story of Sun Langley during her final months of Year Twelve There's the intensity of her first relationship complicated by t. 35 starsWhen I finished Saltwater Moons last night I had mixed feelings There were a lot of things that happened that brought out my anger but I just could not stop reading I thought the story was intriguing the setting was nice and I really liked the writing All the Australian books I ve read so far have great writing Those must have been the reasons why I couldn t put the book down because I know some of the characters weren t the ones who kept me goingI couldn t sympathize with the main character Sun I just wasn t able to fully understand her actions and behavior She allowed the situation between her and Mark to continue And for what She knew what type of person Mark was so it was pretty obvious where the relationship was headed She also knew that she had feelings for someone else Mark s friend Tycho Now I might have gotten annoyed with Sun but I don t believe she was a horrible character She made mistakes like any normal person I do believe she learned something and gained strength from all this but I just don t get why she put herself through that I wish she had the courage to confront Tycho in the first place instead of allowing Mark to take overI didn t like Mark All the things he said to Sun I m sure she s not the first girl to hear those words from him And every time he was with her it never seemed like he was ever completely there His behavior might be his way of coping with his stressful home life but I don t believe that s any excuse As for Tycho he didn t get nearly as much page time as Mark but from what we did get he sounded like a nice guy He definitely wasn t perfect though At least he sounded better than his friend I honestly wondered what he thought of Mark Sun Because to me it was obvious Tycho was interested in Sun and shouldn t Mark have known that But I guess Mark s too selfish to care And Sun wasn t strong enough to stop it from happeningI know it may seem like I didn t like this book and I know it might not make sense with me saying that I have mixed feelings but overall I actually did I just didn t enjoy the decisions and behaviors of certain characters So would I recommend this book Yes And if the author were to write books I would definitely be interested in reading them

    Aussie Reading Challenge #2 Beautifully written Captivating backdrop and setting Another enticing Aussie book for the summer Though this book is a coming of age book I feel that the target audience should be the mature teens just because it is abundant with sex and sexual innuendos I found it to be about a summer of ragi
