I Want SEA by Heidi R. Kling NAO -nomnomnom-

So you know how when some people enter contests, they have boring posts promoting the contest they entered for more points? Well, this is one of those posts, but with a cheesy video and LOLcats.

So, old chap what is SEA all about?

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s accidental disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen year old California girl Sienna “Sea” Jones reluctantly travels with her father’s volunteer team to six months post-tsunami Indonesia. During her stay at the orphanage, she meets scarred and soulful Deni who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can’t be together, so why can’t she stay away from him? And what about her old-best-friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why is her psychiatrist father so secretive about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to the truth. And Sea’s real adventure begins.

Wot’s that? Has it gotten buzz from bloggers and other YA authors?

“Heidi R Kling left no room for doubts or anything with the strong connection Sea and Deni had. It was so intense and beautiful, you were simply drawn to it. Their relationship was so involved, and blew you away. When you are reading Sea, you would by no means guess that it is a debut novel. The story leaps off the page and speaks to you. It’s a journey of the heart and emotions. Once I started reading, I had troubles putting it down. Sea is a book for all types of people, it is one you don’t want to miss.” –Erica, The Book Cellar

“From the opening pages of SEA, the hair stood on the back of my neck, as it does whenever I encounter a writer who really knows what she’s doing with words. Tragedies and miracles coexist in this entrancing debut novel about the aftermath of a tsunami.” — Jennifer R. Hubbard, author of THE SECRET YEAR

SEA is a richly woven story as turbulent and beautiful as the sea itself, plunging us headlong into the depths of loss, devastation, compassion, and hope. A touching and romantic debut about the redemptive power of altruism and the heart’s capacity for love.”Sarah Ockler, author of TWENTY BOY SUMMER
