First of all a confession I tend to run the other way with tender poignant and grief in books for any age especially if they are or less contemporary That said I d heard such praise for this title that I knew I had to read it And having done so I completely understand the enthusiasm while also having to say it still wasn t for me The book is uiet reflective introspective full of small moments and long long long I realize that when I do fall for this sort of book I tend to appreciate tighter and shorter a good example being Kevin Henkes Sweeping the Heart also out this year Both authors are exploring grief both books are melancholy but while this one feels just too much for me mind you Henkes feels just right So there you are

REVIEW ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Kate Allen

CHARACTERS The Line Tender î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Kate Allen Ó 6 CHARACTERS The Line Tender is the story of Lucy the daughter of a marine biologist and a rescue diver and the summer that changes her life If she ever wants to lift the cloud of grief over her family and community she must complete the research her late mother began She must follow the sharksWherever the sharks led Lucy Everhart’s marine biologist mother was sure to follow In fact she was on a boat far off the coast of Massachuse. My grief for her was like a circle I always came around to missing her again The Line Tender resonated deeply with me right from the start The first time I saw the cover and read the book I somehow knew exactly what I was in for Not plotwise simply the overall feeling It s a sorrowful and hopeful uiet and ultimately tender storyAt the centre of the story is Lucy who loves her dad and misses her mum a marine biologist with a passion for sharks Her best friend Fred is the coolest guy on earth There is a moment when Lucy gets her first period so she runs across the street to Fred s house because he s got two older sisters and a mother that could help her out But Fred is home alone so he matter of factly hands her something against period pain and stays cool in a situation that would easily freak out any other boy that age and many adult men as well Anyway Lucy and Fred work on a project for school a field guide where they document all the living things they find around town especially on the beach Lucy is the artist she studies the creature and draws it while Fred is responsible for the research he adds all the necessary information And when a shark turns up at the coast Lucy s adventure is just beginningWhat struck me the most is that this book sends such a simple message without having to spell it out be kind Maybe that s just what I personally take away from it but it s there There is not a single person in this book that is unkind Even though there is grief and loss even though people make small and big mistakes every word and gesture carries kindness This sounds like utopia but it was exactly the right tone for the story People simply cared for one another and it filled my heart with warmthThis is such a great book for children and parents alike I would recommend it for kids age 10 because it does get uite complex at times but I know that they will love Lucy her friends and family just as much as I did Not only does it feature a myriad of role models like female scientists and artists it s also a touching story about friendship and loss Further it talks about anxiety and how it s okay to not always be okay AND you learn so many cool things about sharks I immediately wanted to watch shark documentaries and learn even about themThis book can t get any better but I still have to mention Xingye Jin who did the cover art and the illustrations inside the book I ve only read an eGalley of the book which wasn t ideal when it came to the shark drawings but they were breathtaking Many thanks to Penguin Random House International for providing me with an eGalley in exchange for an honest review Find of my books on Instagram
