Grace's Reviews > Sea Change
by Aimee Friedman (Goodreads Author)
When Miranda's grandmother dies, she and her mother leave New York City to clean out and sell the estate. On Selkie Island she meets a boy who she suspects might be hiding something.
I don't like to review books negatively but here it goes: I found it to be very dramatic and cliched at parts. I know the other was trying to make a smart, mature character but Miranda came across as bland. And for someone who is always saying how smart she is she doesn't seem very mature. I also was irritated by her relationship with Leo. She doesn't know anything about him, but she makes out with him and is thisclose to sleeping with him. I wanted to know more about his character, and overall the characters needed some work. The plot was pretty predictable, except for the ending. I was expecting a happily ever after, but no, Miranda heads back to the city. Also about the ending, you are waiting through the whole book to see if Leo is a merman. As soon as you find out it abruptly ends. There were alot of unanswered questions, but I don't think there will be a sequel.
Even with all the flaws, I enjoyed the book. I didn't want to put it down.
That was my first review on here, hopefully it didn't fail:)
