Sapphire City (The Jewelled City #1)
by Amy Richie
I love the cover of this book. So pretty.
Stella is moved to a tiny Hawaiian island by her mother to protect her. She has a recurring dreams and her mother is always telling her to stay away from the water, though they live on an island. Stella can't quite resist the call of the ocean. This book is really well written and the pacing is really good. I was immediately drawn into the story. I thought the characters were sympathetic and interesting. The island Nortica is really strange. There are very few people. Stella doesn't have any idea what is going on or why her mother brought her there. “You’re on a deserted island,” I muttered to myself, “what’s the worst that could happen?” I really liked this story a lot. 4 stars.
