    Such a heartbreaking and beautiful book. I read this book in less than 24 hours and pretty much weeper the entire time, but it was exactly what I needed. Definitely my favourite book I?ve read so far this year, and one of my new favourite books of all time. Already looking forward to...

    4.5 stars ?Scary things and amazing things coexist. The world is full of wildness and wonder. And a lot of it is good.? Wild Blue Wonder is a captivating story about family, forgiveness, and the pain of grief. Quinn is learning to live after the tragic loss of her best friend D...

    Maybe I'm biased, but I quite liked it. Things in this book: * A love quadrilateral ? * Girls in STEM and sports ?? * A possible sea monster ? * A girl building a boat with her Nana ? * A summer camp in the winter ? * Strong female friendship ? Maybe I'm...

    I was sent an ARC of this book by HCC Frenzy in exchange for an honest review DNF I unfortunately I did not enjoy this book very much. I have been trying to read it for almost the entire month of May but have felt such a huge disconnect. The writing was just okay and some l...

    The main character is obsessed with marine biology, I'm already hooked. I just finished this beauty, WILD BLUE WONDER. I came for the STEM lady (the main character loves marine biology!) and stayed for the cryptids, Moira Fowley Doyle style family dynamics and summer love. ???...

    Stunning and heart wrenching, Wild Blue Wonder is a beautifully written book. Right from the first chapter it is clear that Wild Blue Wonder is magical. Whether it springs from the legends that surround Quinn?s family campground complete with ancient forests and a lake monster or per...

    AHHH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think this book destroyed me, and I absolutely loved it. ...

    Wild Blue Wonder has such beautiful writing and it broke my heart at times. The chapters alternate in time by a few months. The past (summer) is Quinn talking to her best friend, Dylan. She is sharing stories and how she fell in love with him. We also find out that both he...

    Quinn believes there are two monsters where she lives, the mythical creature she once saw in the water and herself. Since her best friend's death months before, her family hasn't been the same. This is a great story about moving on, dealing with guilt and other people's grief beside...

    I really enjoyed When Birds Fly Back, so I am super excited or Carlie's second novel. I love the US cover ;) ...

    True beauty. A story of grief and identity, love, friendship and the meaning of family. Truly exceptional. Brought me to tears, as I knew it would. ...

    This is a wonderful wonderful novel that I never knew I needed, with a sibling dynamic that is beautiful and heartbreaking and emotional. I can't wait to hype this book when it comes out!!! ...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC. What I love most about books is that you can dive right into one without knowing anything about it. There are no movie trailers, FB articles that pop up before you can unsee them etc. I can open it right up and start an unexpected adventure. ...

    There is a part in Wild Blue Wonder where one of the characters, who is British, says ?I always wanted to go to American summer camp as a little boy? and I could completely relate to him in that moment because I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an American summer camp. Since I am a 46-y...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    I really enjoyed this book. I don't read a lot of young adult fiction, but I was interested in the storyline and the characters. ...

    *4.5 stars* This was an unexpected gem. Review coming soon! ...

    I feel like if everyone just talked to one another then this plot would have been avoided. Thanks Edelweiss for the ARC. ...

    Bibliophile Euphoria SPOILERS AHEAD! WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD! Wild Blue Wonderhas taken myheart hostage and refuses to let go. It is awe-mazing and cruel how Sorosiak was able to make me fall in love with a character that was already dead. I did not cry but instead, I felt at lost...

    WILD BLUE WONDER is a gorgeously atmospheric story of family, of love, and of being drop-kicked by grief into the middle of a vast blue ocean, then slowly but surely remembering how to swim. ...

    This book was a delight to read! I?ll soon write more detailed reviews for SLJ and my blog, but here?s what resonated with me: 1. A gorgeous setting 2. Falling for your best friend (we?ve all been there at least once) 3. Unrequited Love (again, we can all relate) 4. Summe...

    Told in an interweaving timeline of Summer and Autumn, a heartbreaking mystery unravels about Dylan, a core presence Quinn's family. Her brother and sister, along with most of their small Maine town, have outcasted her since the accident. Soon, Quinn begins repairing a boat with her ec...

    Got an ARC at a recent kidlit festival (thank you McIntyre's!). Enjoyed this story of a Maine teen dealing with grief/loss of close friend and trying to move forward with help of old and new friends and a quirky/awesome family. Past/present storylines work effectively to create suspens...

    The small town / camp setting of this novel makes it great for summer reading. I love the magical nature of the camp and the close-knit relationships of the people that reside there. Quinn?s family and best friend play an active role in her story as much, if not more, than the romant...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    There is a part in Wild Blue Wonder where one of the characters, who is British, says ?I always wanted to go to American summer camp as a little boy? and I could completely relate to him in that moment because I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an American summer camp. Since I am a 46-y...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC. What I love most about books is that you can dive right into one without knowing anything about it. There are no movie trailers, FB articles that pop up before you can unsee them etc. I can open it right up and start an unexpected adventure. ...

    There is a part in Wild Blue Wonder where one of the characters, who is British, says ?I always wanted to go to American summer camp as a little boy? and I could completely relate to him in that moment because I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an American summer camp. Since I am a 46-y...

    Such a heartbreaking and beautiful book. I read this book in less than 24 hours and pretty much weeper the entire time, but it was exactly what I needed. Definitely my favourite book I?ve read so far this year, and one of my new favourite books of all time. Already looking forward to...

    4.5 stars ?Scary things and amazing things coexist. The world is full of wildness and wonder. And a lot of it is good.? Wild Blue Wonder is a captivating story about family, forgiveness, and the pain of grief. Quinn is learning to live after the tragic loss of her best friend D...

    Maybe I'm biased, but I quite liked it. Things in this book: * A love quadrilateral ? * Girls in STEM and sports ?? * A possible sea monster ? * A girl building a boat with her Nana ? * A summer camp in the winter ? * Strong female friendship ? Maybe I'm...

    I was sent an ARC of this book by HCC Frenzy in exchange for an honest review DNF I unfortunately I did not enjoy this book very much. I have been trying to read it for almost the entire month of May but have felt such a huge disconnect. The writing was just okay and some l...

    The main character is obsessed with marine biology, I'm already hooked. I just finished this beauty, WILD BLUE WONDER. I came for the STEM lady (the main character loves marine biology!) and stayed for the cryptids, Moira Fowley Doyle style family dynamics and summer love. ???...

    Stunning and heart wrenching, Wild Blue Wonder is a beautifully written book. Right from the first chapter it is clear that Wild Blue Wonder is magical. Whether it springs from the legends that surround Quinn?s family campground complete with ancient forests and a lake monster or per...

    AHHH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think this book destroyed me, and I absolutely loved it. ...

    Wild Blue Wonder has such beautiful writing and it broke my heart at times. The chapters alternate in time by a few months. The past (summer) is Quinn talking to her best friend, Dylan. She is sharing stories and how she fell in love with him. We also find out that both he...

    Quinn believes there are two monsters where she lives, the mythical creature she once saw in the water and herself. Since her best friend's death months before, her family hasn't been the same. This is a great story about moving on, dealing with guilt and other people's grief beside...

    I really enjoyed When Birds Fly Back, so I am super excited or Carlie's second novel. I love the US cover ;) ...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    I really enjoyed this book. I don't read a lot of young adult fiction, but I was interested in the storyline and the characters. ...

    *4.5 stars* This was an unexpected gem. Review coming soon! ...

    I feel like if everyone just talked to one another then this plot would have been avoided. Thanks Edelweiss for the ARC. ...

    Bibliophile Euphoria SPOILERS AHEAD! WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD! Wild Blue Wonderhas taken myheart hostage and refuses to let go. It is awe-mazing and cruel how Sorosiak was able to make me fall in love with a character that was already dead. I did not cry but instead, I felt at lost...
