Feeling All of It

The Sea of Tranquility - Katja Millay
I'm pretty outspoken about my heartfelt dislike of books that are overly angsty. I can't stand whiny characters, or characters that I feel act horrible to further the plot of the book. If there's going to be heartbreak, or 'angst', I need to be able to understand it. I need to be able to find a way to relate.

Sea of Tranquility is FULL of angst and heartache, but I can understand why. Nastya and Josh were two teenagers who had both been through Hell. And sometimes, coming out the other side of a journey as wrecked as these, we're broken people. Nastya, in particular, was utterly broken. Knowing that, I could forgive her transgressions more.

The fact that both of these two characters were so damaged, that they felt they had nobody, made it all that much better as they slowly found each other.

I know that this will be a book that I'll read again and again.
