Dear Katja Millay: Sea of Tranquility is about a high school senior who moves in with her aunt about two hours from her hometown. Her transfer. This book knocked me out. The author reminds me of Melina Marchetta in the way she manages to make the characters so real and so affecting.

The Sea of Tranquility

But in fact, she no tye knows who she is or what her role can be in the world. I actually cannot wait!

Do you get it? Sep 02, Beth Hudspeth rated tne it was amazing Shelves: Nastya starts talking again. And he starts to feel terrified. But the thing is, somewhere in the book she says she basically talks to herself in the shower to “train” her voice so it won’t disappear in case she ever needs it again. See, now it’s all about the sexual tension, and not really about the cut anymore.

This book is definitely a bit of a challenge, but it is absolutely worth it. Mystery with a slow reveal. Because, see, I can relate to someone who just can’t talk anymore. And you understand pretty quickly that everything that happens milpay this book is organized so that the characters end up doing what the author wants them to do. But I can share that Nastya is an amazing, complex and real feeling character, with a unique voice of broken bravado. They use stereotypes for characters except, like I said, Drewthey always feature tje protagonists who need saving, the relationships mllay evolve through the same cycle of doubt, jealousy and general angst.


That’s where I started having a problem with the whole silence thing. The book is worth reading for the writing alone. I have Drew, and I seem to have acquired Clay somewhere along the way, but Josh is my escape.

He will forever have a place in my top book boyfriend list. And thank you for writing a story with such depth. I just recently found this blog and have been trying to devour every book that Maryse writes kf. It didn’t feel real to me.

And what he did. She is completely unprotected, she sees no doctor, everyone acts like the no-talking is normal, no one ever checks how she’s doing in school or if she plans to go to college. Josh Bennett has had more than his fair share of loss tranqiility heartbreak, left all alone at the young age of seventeen this young man wants nothing more than to be left to move forward. Granted, it’s not her real name, but still.

They become friends and end up helping each other heal. View all 12 comments. I saw the amazing amount of raving reviews and my interest was piqued.

These are Just some of but not all of my descriptions of this book. Yes, maybe her persona and her carefully constructed facade are illusions. I urge those that have not read this book to go grab it, it has my heart I want it to gain yours too. Go ahead, who knows, maybe you’ll love it! What happens when you deem your self worth so low, you can’t imagine that someone, anyone would want to hold you?


Congrats to Maryse for making the cover! Sometimes there are books that take millah breath away, sometimes my emotions flood my soul, sometimes words cut deep into my heart, sometimes stories don’t want me to let go, sometimes I fall in love I genuinely had a hard time relating to Natsya. Oh, and now attempted rape scenes millqy to be a requirement as well.

She keeps coming back every day and so begins their strange, yet beautiful relationship. Every scene was like that.

Maybe you never will and that’ll suck, but you can’t keep doing this. This book is brimming with emotion. This is a book Tranqjility will be reading again and again just to have my Joshy fix.

Maryse-Yes… We are so close to Orlando. The writing was flawless, and the symbolism that drenched each page was extraordinary.

Review of “Sea of Tranquility” by Katja Millay | Rhapsody in Books Weblog

Kirsten are you in Tampa? Evil’s resourceful that way. I felt, I broke, but I healed! I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk.
