Book Blog - SEA CHANGE by Aimee Friedman

I love living in Colorado.

Really I do.


(And, yes, that is a VERY current picture of my backyard. Brrrrr, right?)

Even though Colorado is a beautiful place, I have to admit, this time of the year I get a little weary of the cold and slush. It's been three weeks of snowy, blustery days and temps below zero. The ocean is calling for me... deep in my soul...and there is not a wave in sight. That's exactly when I need a great read to take me out of the wintery mix and right out onto the beach. I didn't have to look far to find the perfect one. It was right here on my desk--SEA CHANGE by Aimee Friedman.

In an attempt at full disclosure, I must tell you Aimee Friedman (yes, THAT Aimee Friedman, as in: "Bestselling author Aimee Friedman is back, with her signature combination of warmth and humor. And with this book, she adds a touch of fantasy. . .") is also my editor at Scholastic. How lucky am I to have an editor who understands the process from the writer's perspective, too?

Here's more info from Barnes and Noble about SEA CHANGE:

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.

And from Publishers Weekly:

"An evocative setting, an air of mystery and some intriguing love interests for Miranda, a 16-year-old budding scientist, will make Friedman's (The Year My Sister Got Lucky) novel irresistible to romance fans. It all begins when Miranda's mother inherits a house on the remote Georgia island of Selkie, a place teeming with legends of merfolk and sea beasts."

So, how about it? Need a little escape right about now? How about hot,mysterious boys on the beach? (Ok, now who doesn't need THAT?) Check out SEA CHANGE. You'll be transported to the island of Selkie and be brushing the sand off your sandals in no time!
