2017 book 80

Lauren Wolk's Beyond the Bright Sea
Wolk's latest centers on a young girl in 1925 living on a small island near Massachusetts, where she was apparently found as a baby in a tiny boat by the reclusive man living there, who decided to raise her. But now that she's older, she is consumed with curiosity about where she came from. Really a lovely story about family and history, great writing here, even if the villain of the piece is under-explained. I liked this a lot. A-.
