    Another Aussie HitIt’s a true testament to how much I enjoy a book when I forego an entire sunny afternoon to curl up on my couch and read a book from beginning to end in one sitting I find I do that uite often with books penned by Aussie writers It’s like there’s a magic and realism about them Something like tuning

    Aussie Reading Challenge #2 Beautifully written Captivating backdrop and setting Another enticing Aussie book for the summer Though this book is a coming of age book I feel that the target audience should be the mature teens just because it is abundant with sex and sexual innuendos I found it to be about a summer of raging hormones and curiosity with sex and discovering the difference between lust and love and romance There was just so mu

In the beginning it seems so simple A poem in the mail A weekend invitation to the coast But when Sun says yes to a midnight walk her life becomes suddenly com. I want to go visit Australia I don t know if everyone lives by the ocean and eats olive pat and uince paste and puts grapes in their salads or serves lime blossom tea with honey but I d really like to find out Saltwater Moons certainly makes Melbourne seem like a beautiful place to live Sunday is visiting her crush Tycho s parents house on the coast and she is drawn to romantic lure of surf and sand and moonlight as well as increasingly attracted to the boy who invited her One night when he s acting distant however she finds herself headed down a path she never expectedand the conseuences of her choice resonate with all the people she cares about the mostSun is a very typical teenager She feels intense emotions ranging from the dizzy excitement of being attracted to two boys as well as the all consuming anger and pain of being rejected She s also unsure of herself confused by what to make of mixed signals reckless headstrong and deceptive Honestly sometimes it was really hard to sympathize with her because some of the choices she makes are so hurtful and careless and clearly deliberately done in retaliation for her own insecurity But this is said as an adult with 2020 hindsight Most of Sunday s actions and reactions feel emotionally true to that heedless period in your life when it seems as if the world might end if you don t act uickly and get those emotions out of your system nowI find it really hard to get over her behavior towards her friend Nicky however And I am upset that any girl would exchange letters and poems with a boy do kids really do this who s so darned nice to her but still seesaws so wildly in her affections with him But again none of this is unbelievable or hard to imagine in fact it s far too easy to remember the urge to act just this way I m just not sure how much I actually enjoy reading about stuff like this as I tend to like my escapist YA fiction to be infused with a little joy and a little happinessI m probably in the minority on that front however The writing is very appealing and I m sure that the angsty premise will be very relatable to many other readers who may enjoy this a little than I did I m still awarding it 3 stars for the prose as well as the painfully realistic emotions of what it feels like to be a teenagerMy heartfelt thanks to Missie and Nic for sending this book along as part of the Go Aussie Book Tour I really appreciate having the opportunity to read such great Australian YA literature thanks to their generosity So many of these titles will never make it to the US or will take years to get here so it s wonderful to be exposed to authors we might otherwise never find

He fact she continues to exchange poems with her boyfriend's best mate It's a story about love and betrayal about constantly longing for the things we can't ha. I love this story It feels honest and real and doesn t hide the hard bits of being a teenager and facing some of the things that happen I really connected with the characters and I care about Sun throughout the whole story and while I sometimes uestion her choices they are her choices to make and her conseuences to deal with and I am happy to go on the journey with her I don t like Mark but I also don t dislike Mark and I do love her best friend Nicky Then there is Tycho he was the almost silent constant and I was very happy to get to read the coda at the end it brought Tycho to the forefront So much of the story feels bittersweet but at the end I was left feeling completely at peace and satisfied
