A Thousand Salt Kisses Book Review

Book review(

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
You know? I’m really glad I came across a good Mermaids/Mermen book. I liked it, it was a good change from the basic contemporaries.
But…
I think it had potential to become the next bestseller you know? If only it were a bit more original. I think I related a lot of scenes to some of Twilight’s, and honestly, I don’t think you should use scenes or conversations from other books to make your book a better one. I think the writing style could’ve been better. Although the story itself was absolutely brilliant and totally original, the problem was with the writing.

Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Crystal White is the new girl on Starfish Island. Dragged to the remote community by her environmental activist father, she is eager to find fun that doesn’t involve touching fish guts or listening to local folklore.

During a midnight swim with some new friends, Crystal is pulled out to sea by the waves. Convinced she’s going to drown, Crystal is rescued by Llyr, a handsome stranger. As she searches for him in the following weeks, she finds there may be more truth to the Starfish legends than she thought.

Over a sizzling roller-coaster summer, Llyr introduces Crystal to magic she’d only ever dreamed of. But as Crystal comes to love Starfish Island, it begins to drive her family apart. A nearby power plant is devastating local marine life, and her parents are stuck in the middle. As the magic and mundane parts of Crystal’s life converge, she finds herself risking everything to save Llyr, her family, and herself.
