Where do I even begin with this one? It’s been 10 days since I finished reading this gem and I’m still left speechless. Just thinking about it stirs something in me that I can’t even dare explain. It’s beautiful. The Sea of Tranquility is one beautiful piece of literature that I would even go on saying that books like this one is the reason why I read.

Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay.

Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to.

Honestly, the title wasn’t a big come on to me. I mean – The Sea of Tranquility – you don’t get a lot from it – no hint of romance, no hint of the genre it was written under, no nothing. So I wasn’t really expecting anything from it at all. Just saw it in my TBR + it was in my Kindle + I have some sort of a free time = why not get into it, so I did. Didn’t know that what I had in my hand was going to be one of my most favourite books ever. Everrr!
