"Having To Say It Still "
to say it still t for me The book is uiet reflective introspective full of small moments and long long long I realize that when I do fall #For This Sort Of Book I Tend #this sort of book I tend appreciate tighter and shorter a good example being Kevin Henkes Sweeping the Heart also out this year Both authors are exploring grief both books are melancholy but while this one Heart also out this year Both authors are exploring grief both books are melancholy but while this one ust too much for me mind you Henkes feels ust right So there you are There s this song from the musical of Matilda that keeps going through my head when I read The Line Tender Have you ever had a song get caught in your head because of an ironic connection I m sitting here contemplating Kate Allen s uiet thoughtful contemplative novel and then the lyrics from the song Loud appear in my brain They say The less you have to sell the harder you sell it The less. Tts preparing to swim with a Great White when she died suddenly Lucy was eight Since then Lucy and her father have done OK thanks in large part to her best friend Fred and a few close friends and neighbors But June of her twelfth summer brings than the end of school and a heat wave to sleepy Rockport On one steamy day the tide brings a Great White and then another tragedy cutting short a friendship everyone insists was A moving book about Lucy Everheart her father Lucy s #mother died when she was seven What remains is her marine mother s love of the ocean and all things #died when she was seven What remains is her marine biologist mother s love of the ocean and all things As Lucy prepares for a long lazy summer hanging out with her friend Fred things begin to take a new turn when a great white shark is caught in the bay There are drawings here that are nicely done and a story that ust swept me away with all of its heartache and healing Heartbreakingly achingly gorgeously sad Also heartwarming and beautiful and excellently crafted what an absolute gift of a book All the superlatives I sobbed and finished it in one afternoon First of all a confession I tend to run the other way with tender poignant and grief in books for any age especially if they are or less contemporary That said I d heard such praise for this title that I knew I had to read it And having done so The Line Tender is the story of Lucy the daughter of a marine biologist and a rescue diver and the summer that changes her life If she ever wants to lift the cloud of grief over her family and community she must complete the research her late mother began She must follow the sharksWherever the sharks led Lucy Everhart’s marine biologist mother was sure to follow In fact she was on sharksWherever the sharks led Lucy Everhart’s marine biologist mother was sure to follow In fact she was on boat far off the coast of Massachuse.
