Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk - ESSENTIAL

Wolk, Lauren  Beyond the Bright Sea, 283 pgs.  Dutton’s Children Books, 2017.  $16.99  Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.  

Crow washed up on the shore of Osh’s island as a small baby and loves living with him and being friends with the neighbor lady, Ms. Maggie.  She is a curious child and at the age of twelve, she can’t help but try and investigate where she came from.  The town folks avoid her because some believe that she is from the leper colony that used to be on an adjoining island of Penikese.  Crow follows clues that lead her to Penikese and finds more than clues to who she might be in the form of a criminal and a buried treasure.  

I loved this book.  The characters are endearing and you can’t help but love Crow.  The story line is action packed and quick paced.  I am already recommending it to others to read.  Also the audio reader did a fantastic job and the cover is amazing.
