Beyond the Bright Sea was a beautiful little read. The main character, Crow, really captivated me as she journeyed in this novel to find her ‘roots’.
Crow’s relationships with ‘Osh’ and ‘Miss Maggie’ were sweet, innocent and endearing – there was such fierce protectiveness and familial love between these three people that you couldn’t help but be warmed by them.
Wolk’s writing is perfect in its style for this story. It wasn’t over complicated and had a rawness that I liked. It reminded our book club of Scout in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.
The setting was charming and a character in itself, I felt.
I would encourage anyone to read this one! And if you have any 9+ year olds then give it to them to read, too.
Crow is a really well thought through character that i think everyone can relate to. The fact this book is written in first person really helped me feel like i was in Crow's position.
I think Beyond The Bright Sea has a fantastic mix of different genres which makes it a great book for anyone to read.
Overall I think it is a really fantastic book and I really enjoyed reading it. :)
