Summer of Salt, by Katrina Leno


Georgina Fernweh waits impatiently for the tingle of magic in her fingers—magic that has touched every woman in her family.






But with her eighteenth birthday looming at the end of this summer, Georgina fears her gift will never come.

Over the course of her last summer on the island—a summer of storms, falling in love, and the mystery behind one rare three-hundred-year-old bird—Georgina will learn the truth about magic, in all its many forms.

 

Equal parts fantasy, romance, and mystery, this book shimmers with an irresistible energy.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Sophisticated and complex. A necessary novel that is, at the same time, so enjoyable to read that teens will have to fight the urge to crawl into the pages.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“A tale that combines sumptuous old-fashioned storytelling and modern feminist themes.”   (Chicago Tribune)

“A fanciful, whimsical novel. Leno mixes small-town island life and the loving bond between sisters with light magical elements as well as weightier issues that are examined with nuance and maturity.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
