The Sea in Winter
First I wanted to read this book because it has a good title: The Sea in Winter. Doesn’t that sound interesting? I saw a picture in my mind right away. When I saw the book’s cover though, I didn’t think I’d made a good choice. The cover art looks like a baby book! But as soon as I started to read, I was glad again. This is a really, really good book. My city is shut down by a snowstorm right now, so I read this book straight through without any breaks. It’s that good!
Maisie tells the story – her story. Her mom and dad are both native but from different nations. Her biological dad died in the war in Afghanistan. Her mom married again, to another native man from another tribe, and this is Maisie’s dad, the man who has raised her. But losing her biological dad isn’t the thing that hurts most. What hurts Maisie most is having torn her ACL in a stupid accident. That could be tough for any kid, but Maisie has studied ballet since she was four years old. That’s what she is – a ballerina. But what is a ballerina who can’t dance? This is a really great book even if you’ve never had to worry about a problem like that.
