The Sea of Tranquility

Rating: 5 stars
Read: March 9 to 12, 2013
Format Read: Kindle Edition

“I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk.”

Something terrible happened to Nastya. 

She no longer fears death but instead fears everything else.

The girl she was died that day, if she couldn't have music, the talent that defined her, she didn't have anything.

Now, after two years she is going back to school. She wears something that she would never wear before, mini skirts, heavy make-up, stilettos...she wears it like an armor, she wears it for effect. 

Oh and she doesn't speak.

In this enters Josh, sitting alone in a bench, while every single space is occupied by the other students. It's like a force field is keeping everyone else at bay. And she can't help to envy and be enthralled by it.

But Josh have seen death too...every person he loved died. He knew from a young age how unfair life is.

"I believe in God, Sunshine. I've always believed that God exists," he says. And what he says next isn't self-pity or angst or melodrama. It's truth. "I just know that he hates me." 

And together a story of friendship, love, family, loss and above all, second chances, begins!
I'm still in awe with this book, it was just...

Truly one of a kind book.
The story builds itself slowly but with purpose, entrancing and mesmerizing with each word. I couldn't help but feel it all,each emotion like it was my own. It moved me beyond words.

Anyway, I don't think any of my words would do this book justice, I just want to say i LOVED IT and it's one of the books that will most definitely stay with me forever.
