This book was not really even about the ocean.Sienna, a fifteen year old american girl who has recently lost her mother to a plane crash across the world in the indian ocean has been given a suprise ticket for her birthday. A plane ticket to Indonesia. She doesn't want to go at first, but she watches a video of all the orphaned tsunami victims that she could potentially help and she is compelled to go. She has to go. She needs to go. She goes.She meets Deni, an orphan boy from a nearby island. They instantlly bond. The grow together. The heal and help each other. Typically not something I would think I would like to read, but this one was so heartfelt and emotional.... it was just so good.Sidenote: I think the cover needs to be something different, more serious so it doesn't look like a romance novel. I think the cover is pretty and it's probably what made me pick this book up, but it makes the book look like something it's not...

  9. I m just having horrible luck lately All these books I ve been reading lately have been sub par, and Sea was no exception The cover and synopsis sounded promising and I had a friend pining to read it after me Needless to say, I spared her the torment I think, I need to stop reading about anyone under the age of sixteen If you can t drive a car, you should have no opinion about romance You are a brainless child still and shouldn t be running away with some strange boy in a foreign country, direct [...]


  10. 3.5 5 FangsI did not know what to expect going into this book, but I was pleasantly surprised This story was full of romance, self discovery, loss, angst, and hope The author tied in so many different elements to this story, which kept the plot refreshing and interesting The angst in this book was a little much at times, but it definitely kept the story moving I loved how this book mainly took place in Indonesia I have never been to Indonesia before or read a book set there, so it was so interes [...]

  12. Sea is unlike anything else I ve read this past year The story is rich and unique I can t fathom the amount of research that must have gone into this beautiful tale The characters were compelling and believable you could feel their emotions, feel their heartache, pain, and love Seeing the intersecting journeys of healing for several characters Sea, Deni, her father took hold of my heart, and I could not put this down until I knew how it ended.And the ending While it may not be what you expected, [...]


  13. Thank you to the publisher Netgalley for for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review This in no way influenced my opinion.Yes, eerste boek van het jaar De eerste helft van dit boek was erg traag Ik kwam er maar niet doorheen en dat frustreerde me echt heel erg Daarom las ik ook allemaal andere boeken ondertussen en stelde ik deze steeds maar uit Toch wilde ik deze ook uitlezen, dus ik ging er vandaag eens voor zitten En de tweede helft was z veel beter Naast het langzame begin [...]


  14. Between the fanatical reviews posted by several bloggers and Sea s gorgeous cover, I had to have this book for myself Even though I knew a large part of the plot was about tsunami relief, part of my brain expected this book to have lots of idyllic romantic scenes where the characters work through their emotional baggage while sitting on a beach I have no idea where my brain got this idea, but Sea turned out to be much different, yet absolutely beautiful nonetheless.Sea is a story that had me Aww [...]


  15. Actual rating 2.5 starsI had trouble putting my finger on it, but I finally figured out why I didn t enjoy Sea First of all, there were no mermaids I was expecting some Yes, that s my own fault for being stupid and not thoroughly reading the synopsis which doesn t mention mermaids at all , but still One can t help but expect mermaids, looking at that cover and all But that was a trivial thing No, the main reason I didn t like Sea was that many of the important characters lacked common sense.Ok, [...]


  16. I received this ARC from the publisher quite a deal, too I had requested an ARC of Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials but they had run out, and then I got a package in the mail containing a hardcover of that one, another hardcover and two ARCs including this novel and Restoring Harmony I m interested in Middle Eastern culture and the backdrop of the Indonesian tsunami was timely considering the chaos in Haiti right now.Three years ago, Sienna s mother disappeared in a plane around the sam [...]


  17. Sea is a luscious, intriguing tale that was beautiful and dreamy I was pulled straight under the waves from the beginning It was expertly written and researched Kling captured the allure and fascination of the Indonesian culture, and the desperation and tragedy of the tsunami perfectly Kling did a superb job at bringing her characters to life They all seemed so real Sienna was a wonderful character, also love the name Deni was really great, and the romance between the two was sweet But honestly, [...]


  18. I know this one will come as a shocker to most of you What I read a book that had no paranormal character in it whatsoever pauses for your still processing brain to catch up I did Further, I gave it FIVE shiny stars Pinky swear.Until I read SEA, I d forgotten what it was like to read a really, really good story without some mysterious boy popping up and using his magical powers to fight off a mythological monster Yes, there s a mysterious guy And yes, there s even a love triangle But there is so [...]


  19. Sea I liked the story but there were also many things that bothered me in this book The number one being the major flaw of this book and that is the misconception of Buddha being an Indian.BUDDHA WAS BORN IN NEPALIm a buddhist and a Nepali and I was greatly offended when Sienna started telling the story of Buddha and there was no mention of Nepal Besides this fact, I thought the story was okay I found the tragedy caused by the Tsunami really heart breaking Deni and Sienna were really sweet too B [...]


  20. I just finished this book I am blown away Heidi Kling wrote one of my favorite novels Sea was thrilling, sweet, adventurous, while still having that feel where everything seems like it s going to be ok I fell in love with these characters, they were written wonderfully Some people think that the author chooses the book and some people think that the book chooses the author, in this case, Sea definitely chose Heidi While reading it, I couldn t help but think that this book was made for her to wri [...]


  21. What a fantastic and original book Addictive from the very first page, Sienna s story was one I could not get enough of Her reluctant adventure into the aftermath of the 2004 Indonesian tsunami to try and help heal orphans who lost loved ones, ends up being a journey to her own healing Sienna needs to find closure over the loss of her mother, who disappeared in a plane crash over the Indian Ocean years before though the wreckage has never been found But to give up hope that her mother is some da [...]

  23. I just couldn t get into this oneemed teen agey than the other young adult books I read and love The main character in Sea is super boy crazy, and it reminded me of my middle school years when every guy I met was a potential boyfriend I decided not to waste any time and returned it to the library after reading 4 or 5 chapters.


  24. Sea was a fascinating little adventure romance that I very much enjoyed I applaud Heidi for writing it, and wanting to give the Young Adult world a different taste of literature, as its definitely unique It was not my typical genre that I read, so for me to like it as much as I did was quite brilliant I m not much into reading adventure and journey s or that kind of thing but this book still kept me going Most of the fun in the book took place in the beginning in preparation and the first encoun [...]


  25. Love, Love, Love it I love books with romance, but sometimes the romance genre feels oversaturated with paranormal or new girl falls for hot guy who finally notices her storylines Sea stands out among these romances and is a breath of fresh air In Sea, you ll find a wonderfully lovely story about a normal girl and this girl actually travels the world and helps people Sure, she s reluctant to at first, but what I loved about Sienna is that she goes for it she joins Team Hope and travels to Indone [...]


  26. SEA is a wonderfully solid, emotional, and un put downable debut by a highly talented YA novelist.Heidi Kling writes her characters with assured realness Sienna thinks and sounds like a 15 year old with a tragic past she has the fears and occasionally petty concerns appropriate for her age and situation Instead of finding her naivete annoying, then, Sienna s and, thus, Heidi s seamless teen voice completely won me over.This is the first YA novel I ve read that deals with the tragedy of the Indon [...]


  27. It s funny, I find it really hard to write reviews of books that I enjoyed In books that were just so so, it s a lot easier because I can focus on both the good and the bad things, but books I like I get a little fan girly about them.Sea was definitely one of those books I read it in practically one sitting, only stopping to eat dinner and maybe Tweet just a little bit My reading spot is really uncomfortable, actually knees up on my bedpost, which always digs into my skin so it s pretty rare tha [...]


  28. I first noticed this book on a lot of people s book blogs It has rave reviews so without really knowing that much about it I added it to my wish list to be brought at a later date However I kept seeing this book everywhere So intrigued I decided to read what it was about and after finding out I ordered this book straight away because it felt a little bit like fate that I kept crossing paths with it.Still haunted by nightmares of her mother s death, fifteen year old Sienna Jones reluctantly trave [...]


  29. The story begins with Sienna s birthday when she receives a plane ticket as a gift from her father to Indonesia, but Sienna has a fear of flying and the water since her mother s airplane disappeared over the Indian Ocean three years ago Despite her fears, Sienna sets out to spend two weeks at an Indian orphanage with her father to help children dealing with PTSD from surviving the 2004 tsunami While at the orphanage, Sienna immediately connects with the mysterious Deni, an orphan who believes hi [...]
