Not only am I enjoying the beach life down in Waves, NC but I was honored with an e-mail this morning by Catherine Torres.
She is an author based out of Berlin, Germany and has published three novels. But, just last month, she published her fourth novel but her first YA novel! Currently, the book is only available in Asia but she is looking to expand and she contacted me to ask if I would give an honest review about her novel, Sula’s Voyage. I’m feeling totally blessed and ecstatic to read this novel. It was a finalist in the Asian Book Awards! I can’t wait to get my copy of Sula’s Voyage in the mail, it sounds like a fantastic read.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Fifteen-year-old Sula has always known she is different. Even though her parents have shown her nothing but love and acceptance, she sees her dark skin as a reminder of how she doesn’t fit in with the rest of her family.
What’s worse is she also feels that her parents are hiding something from her. After getting expelled from school, Sula reluctantly goes to stay with her mother’s friends. There she unexpectedly finds herself on a journey of self-discovery — a journey that keeps drawing her to the sea. Sula must not only figure our her parents’ secret, but also just how different, and possibly magical, she really is.
