Wild Blue Wonder Reviews
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 perhaps from the captivating writing style, everything about Wild Blue Wonder seems to glow.

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!!!

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

1. A gorgeous setting

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. 💯💯💯
SPOILERS AHEAD! WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD!
Wild Blue Wonder has taken my heart 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 of tears. The characters are the main appealing effect of the story. It is near impossible to go through the book without completely and utterly loving all the characters and wanting to protect them all.
It saddens me a ...more
