I expected more about discovering the shipwreck, because that's what the synopsis emphasized (or so I thought). But it was mostly about Violet discovering herself. Which is fine... but there could've been more shipwreck.

4.5, I finished this book a few days ago and I keep coming back to it, I loved this story so much. I adore Ms. Drake's writing style, I can't wait for her to write more.

CW: Attempted suicide, depression, drinking, sexual content.

This is a pretty raw and poetically written book about a girl dealing with a family on the brink of collapse. Her brother’s suicide attempt and her own ‘year of wild’ result in her being sent to live with her uncle in a small coastal community. This is where Violet believes the origins of her family's misery began. She believes a shipwreck in which her great great great grandmother was the lone survivor has put her family under a curse. The missing and broken ship come to symbolise the missing and broken parts of Violet’s life. She holds onto hope that finding the wreck will heal her wounds. I thought the love story was well done and I felt invested in the relationships Violet built. I love re-imaginings so really enjoyed the fresh new take on the Twelfth Night. One of my favourite Shakespeare plays. A lovely book.

YA is definitely not my favorite genre. There were a few parts in this book that were not written in that typical YA way and I absolutely loved those sections. Probably the one thing that kept me reading all the way to the end. If you typically like YA you will probably like this book.
