Sea by Heidi R. Kling

Summary: Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen-year old California girl Sienna Jones reluctantly travels with her psychiatrist father’s volunteer team to six-months post-tsunami Indonesia where she meets the scarred and soulful orphaned boy, Deni, who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can’t be together, so why can’t she stay away from him? And what about her old best friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why won’t her dad tell her the truth about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to finding answers.

Review: This book just took my breath away and never gave it back. I related to Sienna in such a way that I've never related to a character. I went on 2 mission trips with my church that changed my life in a big way. One was to New Orleans, LA after Hurricane Katrina hit, and the other was to Botswana, Africa so during this entire book it was like I was feeling all those emotions from both trips. I even felt some of the same anxiety because of my fear of heights/flying. The story was just wonderful and the end was so beautiful. Words just can't describe how much I loved this book.
