really liked it
bookshelves: arc-reads

The author skillfully frames her novel around the aftermath of a current event. Every plot incident and description is from protagonist Sienna's point of view without letting the issue of tsunami orphans take over the story.

Sienna confronts the death of her mother and her feelings for both Spider, a friend back home, and Deni, a young guy living in the orphanage where Sienna, her father, and her psychologist are instituting a group home program to alleviate the children's PTSD.

A hopeless romantic, I basked in the waves of the budding romantic and sexual tension developing between Sienna and Deni. The novel's climax was a pleasurable surprise.

I felt that every character had an authentic voice and retained complexity as they each traveled along their respective arcs, even the secondary characters.
