Yet sixteen-year-old Harlow Prout is determined to save her small Maine hometown. If only she could stop getting in her own way and find someone, anyone, willing to help. But her best friend Ellis MacQueen "fixes" problems by running away from them--including his broken relationship with his twin brother, Tommy. And Tommy's depression has hit a new low, so he's not up for fixing anything. In the wake of the town's latest devastating storm, Tommy goes out for a swim that he doesn't intend to survive. It's his unexpected return that sets into motion a sea change between these three teens. One that tests old loyalties, sparks new romance, and uncovers painful secrets. And nothing stays secret in West Finch for long. Exquisitely honest and shimmering with emotion, The Sea is Salt and So Am I is a captivating multi-POV story that probes the depths of what it means to love and trust--both ourselves and others.

Review quote

Praise for The Sea Is Salt And So Am I: The Sea is Salt And So Am I is an achingly beautiful story of love, family and friendship with a coastal setting so richly drawn you can practically taste the salt spray. The three narrators are refreshingly raw and complex, and their lush and crackling voices had me hanging on every word. At once turbulent and tender, this deeply-felt debut will make your heart swell time and time again.--Julia Drake, author of The Last True Poets of the Sea "The Sea is Salt And So Am I is a breathtaking debut, filled with complicated characters and feelings that permeate the pages with their honesty. Achingly beautiful."--Rachael Lippincott, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart
