Moonglass - A Bookanista Review

From Goodreads:
Anna's life is upended when her father accepts a job transfer the summer before her junior year. It's bad enough that she has to leave her friends and her life behind, but her dad is moving them to the beach where her parents first met and fell in love- a place awash in memories that Anna would just as soon leave under the surface.
While life on the beach is pretty great, with ocean views and one adorable lifeguard in particular, there are also family secrets that were buried along the shore years ago. And the ebb and flow of the ocean's tide means that nothing- not the sea glass that she collects on the sand and not the truths behind Anna's mother's death- stays buried forever.
From Me:
Jessi Kirby hits it out of the park in this debut novel. Moonglass is a beautifully written story about a girl's quest to accept her mother's death. I loved so much about this book. Anna is a captivating character. She's honest and daring -- a very real combination of sensitive and tough. I would love to have her as a friend.
There's a sweet romance with a lifeguard but Anna's relationship with her father stole the show for me. These two were truly a joy to spend time with. Their love for one another was quiet and palpable and perfect. I also loved the seaside setting of Crystal Cove -- a place I'm determined to see someday, thanks to this novel. A fast and deeply felt read. My only complaint is that Moonglass wasn't longer!
Moonglass hits shelves in May.

That sounds like my kind of YA book. I'll have to pick it up!

It is a great book. A one-sitting kind of read! Thanks for coming by the blog!
