The Lure of Shapinsay

The Lure of Shapinsay - Krista Holle Well it's been a long time since I've read this book. I actually wrote the review but I didn't save it, it was on notepad and then my computer turned off on me. :( Anyway. I really liked this book. This was my first selkie read, which I think is why the book still stand out so much to me after so long. I didn't know what to expect, I didn't even know what selkie's were I had to look them up. I loved mermaid's growing up, they were my favorite sea mythical creatures growing up, but after I had finished readings this, I'm not so sure any more.This book took me about two days to finish. I had started it than I put it down and picked it up again. Once I got into it, that was it, I didn't put it down. The story moved at a good pace and I just wanted to know what came next. I loved Kait, who was strong. I feel like in YA, when a strong girl falls in love sometimes she isn't as strong, I didn't feel that way with Kait. And, if I remember correctly, she had felt that she wasn't as strong, afterward, but I don't think that was the case. I also really liked Tipper, and her story was a sad one. I can't remember what I thought her story was going to be, but what it was caught me a little off guard. I wasn't especially fond of Eamon, but I was able to move past that without much of a problem.I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
