Anise Sawyer plans to spend every minute of summer with her friends: surfing, chowing down on fish tacos drizzled with wasabi balsamic vinegar, and throwing bonfires that blaze until dawn. But when a serious car wreck leaves her aunt, a single mother of three, with two broken legs, it forces Anise to say goodbye for the first time to Santa Cruz, the waves, her friends, and even a kindling romance, and fly with her dad to Nebraska for the entire summer. Living in Nebraska isn’t easy. Anise spends her days caring for her three younger cousins in the childhood home of her runaway mom, a wild figure who’s been flickering in and out of her life since birth, appearing for weeks at a time and then disappearing again for months, or even years, without a word.
Complicating matters is Lincoln, a one-armed, charismatic skater who pushes Anise to trade her surfboard for a skateboard. As Anise draws closer to Lincoln and takes on the full burden and joy of her cousins, she loses touch with her friends back home – leading her to one terrifying question: will she turn out just like her mom and spend her life leaving behind the ones she loves

So I finished Girl Out of Water and…………
It was freaking fabulous! Girl Out of Water, is a coming of age, YA contemporary novel. That will no doubt make you yearn for summer and maybe even that summertime crush.
From the start, Girl Out of Water made me desire summer, the beach, the sunshine and the pure sounds of waves in a beautiful summer night. Also,
Also, let’s not forget a summer crush, which for me has always been Keanu Reeves hehe
This book unquestionably has me aching for summer. But that’s not the only thing this book is about. Girl Out of Water is definitely more than that. It made me long for more time with family, spending time and making memories with them. It made me thinking about loss and grief but also abandonment and neglect and how people deal differently. How people see others with disabilities and wish people would just treat us like everyone else.
This book really opens your eyes and makes you feel things very profound and real.
This book is faultless and intelligently refined. And I simply can not wait for Ms. Lauran Silverman’s other works.
I recommend this book to anyone from YA to an adult, that wants to get in touch with the carefree self we once were as kids.
