EBOOK DOWNLOAD The Edge of the Water
Elizabeth George Ò 9 Free downloadDon t remember her from the first book which
irritated me ame a but I was okay with going along with it Jenn herself is a little tiring in how outright antagonistic she is and her home life didn t seem so bad to justify her behavior but I got se to her fast enough At least her side of the story was going somewhere Becca who was the only character I really was invested in seemed to have very little to do in this story and ntil way into the middle half her perspective is very dull It felt like her story which was all the first book was about was being shunted aside for this less interesting mystery about a seal I will say though that at least she didn t spend her time moping about Derrick That would only have made it worseDerrick s perspective was seless Really the author could have cut all the chapters from his POV and the story would not have been impacted at all It was like she was dying to keep him relevant but had no real way of doing so I feel like his perspective could have been compelling He is part of a very small minority on an island populated by mostly whites and he has a hard time reconciling his life in the States and his life in Uganda All of this would have been a niue story line to follow one we don t see enough of in YA literature What does the author focus on Sex He wants to have it but when he does it wasn t what he expected It read like some cautionary tale a Christian youth group would give to its students Somehow this all ties into his struggle with identity but to me it was a flat story about not knowing whether you really want to "sleep with someone or not What does this have to with Uganda What does "with or not What does this have to do with Uganda What does have to do with Derrick as an actual person with a huge identity crisis Nothing Nothing at all I d say it was the chapters about Derrick that made reading this a chore I see a lot of people don t know what to think about the seal and that s because really there s no one way to feel about it It comes completely out of left field Suddenly everything it about this seal even the characters themselves constantly talk about why everything is about this seal It s an nusual seal the book says over and over That s because it s a selkie which seems so out of place with everything that has been given to the reader so far Suddenly we have magic seals Why How does this impact the overall story which if you ve forgotten in all this is Becca trying to hide out from her stepdad I don t even know the answer to that myself I don t think I ve been so mad about a seuel in my life I wanted to like it but.

I had to throw the towel in on this second book in the author s young adult Whidbey Island series Maybe it s me but it seemed like characters were stereotypes and the dialogue felt forced Would Jenn a poor girl really setp an obstacle course that included a toilet seat Also I didn t get why this book started first with the seal Cilla and then with Jenn McDaniels and not Becca King the protagonist of the first book in this series Becca didn t appear ntil chapter 3 Also #It Felt Like Too #felt like too stories going on the black seal Becca s step dad Becca s on again offf again relationship with Derrick Derrik S Relationship With Derrik s relationship with sister he left behind in Africa Derick s relationship with Courtney the Bible toting girl who likes to do everything but intercourse Jenn s budding sexuality sexting bullying I gave p when Annie the woman who came to study the black seal donned a thong swimming suit and her nipples poked out and she stared openly at Jenn as she The New Competition undressed It seemed predatoryuncomfortable and out of place What was the premise of this book This seuel definitely wasn t as satisfying as I had hoped It s been a while since I read the first book and I m sure it had its flaws but I loved it It s one of those books that have stuck with me ever since I finished it This book however I can t say left much of an impression It was a little hard to read through to be perfectly honest and I think it s primarily because it seems so vastly different from what was presented in the first book The first book was suspenseful story about a girl out to keep herself from her dangerous step father with a little supernatural power for extra measure With this book it was like the author didn t know what to do because after this book she has one to write which is a shame because I think this all would have done well with just two books rather than the overused trilogy formula so she had to comep with something and this is it First off this story just comes off as an outright mess You have Jenn s perspective Becca s perspective and Derrick s perspective All of this seems so wildly different from one another it was hard to see how in the world they were connected Even when they finally came "Together Well At Least "well at least s and Becca s did it still seemed Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution by Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller utterly confusing with a rushed ending to explain how everyone is connected to this one seal I m all for varying perspectives but it could have been written much neater than it was in this book Jenn s perspective was the only perspective that remained interesting throughout the entire book Die 14 jährige Becca King ist auf der Flucht Ihr Stiefvater hat seinen Geschäftspartner ermordetnd er weiß dass Becca es weiß denn sie kann die Gedanken anderer Menschen hören Nun ist sie auf einer abgeschiedenen Insel ntergetauch. It just didn t go with the first book at all It s such a shift in focus and direction that it s hard to tolerate I ve never seen a bunch of characters who just don t know anything about themselves about the people around them about where they re going Every character arc felt like it ended p with IDK I guess I ll figure out at some point If this is suppose to represent teens then it s kind of off the mark I think real teenagers know a lot about themselves than this book will lead you to believe I don t know if I ll bother with the third book and if I do it will only be to see how "everything turns out with Becca s stepfather I m certainly hoping there "turns out with Becca s stepfather I m certainly hoping there t be another ridiculous plot about seals or some out of place nonsense Elizabeth George s YA books have left me disappointed I am a big fan of her adult mysteries but it seems like she is trying too hard to break into the YA market by hitting all the teen check boxes ie mind reading fantasy young love angst bully become friend oh let s though in a little mythology in there too It s too much She should of just stayed with the straight mystery Review I liked this book overall If there was one thing I d change it would have action I knew that Becca and Jen would become friends in the first book because you can t possibly hate someone that much for no apartment reason I was also pleased to find out that Becca did tell Diana about her whispers PlotThe plot of this book was about Nera I love how the author gave different point of views throughout the entire story That way readers can get a look at what s going on in the lives of the other characters instead of just the main oneI didn t expect the twist of Jenn s thoughts and emotions on her sexuality but I think it touched the book in a thoughtful and diverse wayAnnie though gosh What the heck is wrong with that girl She is all sorts of messed Children of the New World up in the head If I didn t know better I would say that she got fumed with that oil spill ages ago and it made her mental but clearly she was just born this messedp Annie had what we call an open relationship except their not really dating than one person their just fooling around with other peoples emotions and private parts That is not ok and does not make fucking around with a guy when your a lesbian or less and screwing around with his feelings ok Nor is it ok to come on to a 15 year old girl when she s like what In her 30 s That s child molestation This girl is crazy and should be put in jailBut anyway This was a great book and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
