    Sweet YA Story

    I was really excited to read Tiffany King's latest book. Her books always have the best characters and a unique storyline. And that is exactly what I found in Turtle Bay. Kings characters are the ones that get overlooked by the popular crowd and have interesting circumstances. They always feel real and genuine. Rain has some pretty interesting parents that any teen would be trying to hide from their judgmental peers. Her less than perfect behavior is a ploy to avoid the ridicule of those peers. And her attempts to recover from her mistakes finds lots of problems before any real recover can happen. Felt very true to life. Josh is adorable. His passion for the environment helps him deal with the lacks he has at home. His job has become his family and life. He's attracted to Rain but he's patient and sweet as he gets to know her. Josh is a good guy. Not a jerk or a bad boy, a good guy - and he's exactly what Rain needs. The story is sweet. As these two get over their not so perfect first meeting and the misunderstanding that lands Rain in community service, they get to know each other and support each other. What I loved was that they each accepted the other for who they were. And they both learned from the other in ways that helped them deal with the issues they were facing. Something that's really different about this one is the climax to the story. I can't really say the details but I will say that the relationship between these two was not at risk but strengthened by the events of the story. I enjoyed that. Not every relationship needs to hang by a thread before a couple can love each other and move forward. It was nice. This is a great Young Adult story that young and old can enjoy. If you love that type of read, then make sure you check this one out. It's worth it.
