I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk. Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay. Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space. Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to. The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.

*spoilerish* for people who know me and can read between the lines.Katja Millay's writing is beautiful. It manages to both linger and compel you to push on. The connection to the sea of tranquillity title namesake is gorgeous and so is much of the imagery and metaphors. I love dark, angsty literat...

5.0 Swept away by The Sea of Tranquility
Do you ever get nervous about starting a book? Because you've heard such good things about it? Because in interviews the author seems so cool? And then you finally have it in your hand and you send up a little prayer that it will live up to the hype? Or is that just me? Regardless, that's how I fe...

2.0 The Sea Of Tranquility
Oh why did you disappoint me so?! I felt like this book was a heavy weight that I was just trying to pull off of me so I could go do other things. How could every one love this book and I feel like it was LONG, LONG, LONG. It's 428 pages LONG. The Pillars of The Earth, which I loved, felt shorter th...
