The Girl from the Sea

We rated this book:


Fans of Molly Knox Ostertag will delight in her latest graphic novel, The Girl from the Sea. The story centers around fifteen-year-old Morgan who has a secret she’s afraid to share. Morgan has a plan though. She wants to survive high school, leave her small island, and go away to college to start her real life. However, along comes Keltie who will change the course of Morgan’s plans.

I absolutely loved this book! The story and the plot were phenomenal; I was completely engrossed in the story from the beginning till the end. I love that the story involves the selkie folklore which I had never heard of prior to reading this book. I received an advanced reader’s copy so the ARC didn’t have any color, but the illustrations were still wonderful. Unlike The Witch Boy series, I think this book is more suitable for older kids due to the romance and kissing and some suggestive behavior. This is the perfect book to read for Pride Month! I HIGHLY recommend this graphic novel for anyone who enjoys a great romance and a coming-of-age story.
