Book Review: “The Sea of Tranquility” by Katja Millay

The sea of tranquility

Oh this book! It’s been 2 days since I’ve finished it and I can’t seem to pick up anything else. Without giving any spoilers away, this book is about a girl named Nastya Kashnikov who moves in with her aunt in order to escape her broken past which she can’t seem to let go of. The coolest thing about this character is that she doesn’t actually speak. I know what you’re going to say, “What do you mean she doesn’t speak?” But with the way Katja Millay writes (Katja, I still don’t know how you did it), you don’t NEED Nastya to have a dialogue. Nastya starts off her senior year balls to the wall, not caring what anyone thinks about her. Then she  sees Josh Bennet. Oh, Josh Bennet and his garage. I have never wanted to sand a piece of wood or furniture so badly in my entire life! This book is so different and unique that I constantly caught myself asking Katja Millay “How in the HELL did you come up with that?”  The verdict for this book would have to be : Absolutely, Sunshine-ing (if you’ve read it you’ll get that)  fantastic!
