The Sea of Tranquility is an intense read with complicated characters. Each character, main and supporting, is interesting and complex. Both main characters have endured incredible pain and are trying to figure out how to live in a world that they don't entirely want to be in. Unusual bonds form between unlikely characters, who make mistakes while trying to sort out the confusion of their lives. The story holds many surprises which create emotional turmoil for all of the characters. The best part of The Sea of Tranquility is that there isn't any "insta-love". All relationships that are formed don't come immediately and certainly don't come easily. They are satisfying because of what the characters has to go through in order to keep the relationships together.

Don't think you can read this book in leisurely installments, a chapter here and a chapter there. It is completely engrossing from the first page to the last. The novel is about Nastya, a high school senior who resorts to selective mutism to deal with a traumatic event. She meets Josh who has had traumas of his own, and they develop a friendship and one of the best slow-burn romances I have ever read. Healing comes incrementally, without cliches and stereotypes. It's a beautiful book; you read it and forget you're reading. Highly recommended.

Josh and Nastya are lost. Nastya is trying to make it through high school without everyone nosing into her secrets. Josh is trying to survive the fact that his secrets are out in the open for the world to see. When Nastya transfers schools to live with her sister, she tromps all over the bubble that seemed to surround Josh, creating a fragile friendship that neither character seems to be able to understand. The two dance in, out, and around one another's lives creating a lyrical but intense read.
