Tracing Stars by Erin E. Moulton
I gave this book 5 of 5 stars on Goodreads
I loved it. The characters, quirky and real, are like anyone you might know having grown up in New England, especially if you grew up in tourist traps and/or with fisherman. I found bits of myself in Indie, Sloth, Owen, maybe even in Bebe…hopefully not in Kelsey. They story has a few very clear trajectories that come together beautifully in the end. It’s not weighed down by too many people or details all at once…just the right amount at every given time. Even as an adult, I found myself trapped with Indie in a series of impossible ethical choices and wondered what I would have done in her shoes. I couldn’t put it down. I have already recommended it to local awards committees.
