Julia is a 2011 Santa Cruz transplant (from the woods of Pennsylvania) and a yoga teacher who-- surprise!--was a Creative Writing and Film Theory major. She reads a lot of fiction and a little non-fiction, and just got into graphic novels, and can't read super scary mysteries because she's afraid of the dark. But she likes her fiction "kinda gritty," not fluffy. She's the Events Coordinator. Besides books, she likes bikes, gardens, and being active in every way possible; she would love to learn how to surf and is ashamed she hasn't yet.
A gritty, atmospheric debut novel about family, revenge, and love, in foggy coastal Maine. Two brothers cope with the mysterious disappearance of their father and the legacy of the lobster fishing business he left behind. narrated through the eyes of even the most emotionally damaged and despicable characters. Phenomenally styled: bare and hard-hitting. I couldn’t put this one down.
