    One thought on “Summer of Salt”

    1. Unlike Katrina Leno’s previous books, the magical realism in Summer of Salt isn’t subtle. The magic in this book is evident right from the beginning and plays a central role in the story. What isn’t evident from the beginning, however, is the important and powerful message this book has to share. It would have been a sweet, diverse, wonderfully relatable coming-of-age story regardless, but Katrina Leno doesn’t leave it at that. She wanted her book to mean something, and oh, did she succe [...]

    2. 'I knew that he would use that gun, because that is what small, scared men did: they used things more powerful than themselves to make up the difference. They hid behind weapons of mass destruction: big guns and bigger bombs.'*SO THIS BOOK KINDA BROKE ME AND MAYBE ALSO HEALED ME A LITTLE BIT SOBSHoly shit, Summer of Salt just kind of creeps up on you about what its actually doing and I loved that about it. I mean, up until halfway through I was just having a great time reading this heartwarming [...]

    3. Katrina Leno can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Her books have soul, they are different and they make you believe a 300-year-old bird actually exist. Summer of Salt is pure gold.

    4. It is no secret that Katrina sent me an ARC of this book and I am so lucky that she did. I love Katrina's writing so much and I read this in two days.Guys. I can't choose a favorite. I love all of her books, Molly Pierce has a special place in my heart, I read Lost & Found when I needed it most, Everything all at Once is just MY FUCKING BOOK oh my god I connect with that book so deeply, but this book hit really close to home in a lot of ways too and the writing was just SO DAMN GOOD ugh I ju [...]

    5. The Summer of Salt is seriously so good. It made me think of Pawley's Island (the place) and Practical Magic (the movie), except a little more macabre than either. It's the story of the Fernweh twins, Georgina!& Mary, and their last summer on their home island By-the-Sea before they go off to college. All of the Fernweh women through the ages have had a special magical ability, except Georgina doesn't. She has til her 18th bday for her power to manifest or it never will. There's also this re [...]

    6. This is beautiful, gentle story about two young sisters from magic family living on the romantic island. It has winds, salt, water, trees, graveyards, ice-cream, love, friendship and floating in air. It will warm your from the inside and will give you the true pleasure.But in the end You must be ready for harsh and straightforward message. I can't say that reader going to be disapointed - you can't be dissapointed in author saying the truth. But this book was so airy, so transparent and light, a [...]

    7. So, I am super excited to read this book! Not only because I am a twin, and adore reading anything about twins but, because it seems absolutely wonderful!
