Hey guys, it's me. I know it's been awhile but these past weeks my stress level has been at a 12. Hopefully I can start posting a little more frequently but it still wont be as much as I normally post. (Right now this is missing pictures because my computer wont let me add any. When I get to school I will be able to add them.)

Where I Found You (Sea #1) by Heidi R. KlingGenre: YA Contemporary
Published by Entangled Teen
Published on December 4th, 2017
After her mother’s plane went missing over the Indian Ocean, seventeen-year-old Sienna Jones gave up everything she loved about living in California. No more surfing. No more swimming. No more ocean, period. Playing it safe, hiding from the world, is the best call.
Until her dad throws down the challenge of a lifetime: spend the summer with his humanitarian team in Indonesia, working with orphans who lost everything in a massive tsunami.
The day they arrive, Sienna meets a mysterious boy named Deni, whose dark, intense eyes make her heart race. Their stolen nights force her to open up and live in a way she thought she couldn’t anymore. When she’s with Deni, she remembers the girl she used to be…and starts to feel like the woman he sees in her.
A woman he wants for his own.
But when Deni’s past comes looking for him, Sienna’s faced with losing another person she loves. She can’t do it. Not again.
Fortunately, this time, she has a plan.
Review: 4 out of 5
I loved this book. I've always felt drawn to the ocean so the fact that the ocean plays a huge role in the book made my heart soar.
I love the characters in this book. Especially the leading character, Sienna. She's a character that makes you feel her emotion along with her. I could feel the pain of her loosing her Mom. The fear of flying and of the ocean. The author uses her character to make you feel like a part of the story as well. Like you're experiencing everything as well. I also love her character development.
I also really enjoyed how the story takes place in Indonesia and how the characters go there to help children who lost their families in the Tsunami. I felt this was a great idea especially since Sienna knows how it feels to loose someone you love in a tragedy.
Overall I think this is a great book for lovers of realistic fiction. I defiantly enjoyed it.
