eBook ò The Leaving Year ê Pam McGaffin

The Leaving Year È A coming of age YA novel about the daughter of a Pacific Northwest fisherman whose presumed drowning in 1967 has her searching for answers including whether or not he’s really dead As the Summer of Love comes to an end 15 year old Ida Petrovich waits for a father who never comes home While commercial fishing in Alaska he is lost at sea but with no body and no wreckage Ida and her mother are forced to accept a The Leaving Year was very beautifully written with a really interesting combination of ideas However it was uite slow moving and there was not a whole lot that happened during the first part of the novel particularly The second half I loved though It's not an overly long book but I feel that it could have been just a bit shorterOne main thing I think made this book a bit harder to read was that it felt detached I didn't really feel the main character and for the first half of the book I couldn't remember her nameI also found that the setting wasn't really established in the first part of the novel It is set around 1970 but it took me a little while to realise this as it isn't really referred to at the beginning of the novelBut it was a really nice narrative and I loved all of the side characters that made appearances throughout the novel It was a really great concept to go along with this pretty cover and titleBut the second half of the book picked up considerably and I think that after I was in part 2 I began to really enjoy the novelI also really loved the definitions included at the beginning of each chapter They were my favourite part Many thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with a review copy All opinions are my own eBook ò The Leaving Year ê Pam McGaffin
