I would give this book 3.5
In this twisting tale of loyalty, betrayal, and love, two sisters must survive the wilds, if they can first survive each other—for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Gone Girl.
“Emotionally eviscerating. A gripping examination of the barbed-wire bonds between sisters that cut, protect, and don’t let go. Prepare to feel.”
—Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval
Emma has always orbited Henri, her fierce, magnetic queen bee of an older sister, and the two have always been best friends. Until something happens that wrecks them.
I’d trusted Henri more than I’d trusted myself. Wherever she told me to go, I’d follow.
Then the unthinkable occurs—a watery nightmare off the dazzling coast. The girls wash up on shore, stranded. Their only companion is Alex, a troubled boy agonizing over his own secrets. Trapped in a gorgeous hell, Emma and Alex fall together as Emma and Henri fall catastrophically apart. To find their way home, the sisters must find their way back to each other. But there’s no map for this. Can they survive the unearthing of the past and the upheaval of the present?
For the first time, I was afraid we’d die on this shore. for a review.
* I got this book from ALA and this is my honest thoughts*
I really liked this book. It was fun read. The multiple time periods was a blessing and curse in this novel because I was much more invested in the present storyline and Emma and Alex relationship and that is what kept me reading. I felt like the sister relationship was very uniquely done and not a type of relationship I have seen in the novel. It had some very fascinating relationship drama between them. I loved the survival aspects of this story and that is what motivated me to keep reading. It was a bot heartbreaking novel but also dealt with survival and that is what kept me reading. It is a cute summer read but also dealt with harder topics that kept me engaged as well.
