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.
Wow I have to say this is not what I expected. Nastya and Josh are not your typical characters, they do not even act like they like each other for a good portion of the book, they just ‘get’ each other. When I first started reading about Nastya I just wanted to know what the hell happened to this girl that she was so traumatized that she didn’t talk. Then I got pieces very slowly so it frustrated me at times, I can understand how the other characters in the book felt.
Josh was just dealt a shit hand in life. He just wants to get through the last of his heartache and Nastya shows up. When she just pushes her way into his life he just shrugs and lets her. She’s like him, neither of them give a damn, wants pity, or questions. He wants to remember, she wants to forget.
I have to say the romance is real because they gradually fall in love out of respect for each other and the realization that life is better together than apart. Good YA read.
