Infinite BlueA world record swim and the strange vision that accompanies it raises uestions about the couple's connectionThen a life altering incident triggers a mystical change which will demand that both of them let go in I received this eARC from Orca Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Obligatory Summary This is a difficult book to summarize because honestly I don't really know what happenedBasically take that one movie about a girl who loves surfing but gets bitten by a shark and losses an arm but learns to surf again and merge it with a fever dream version of Aua Marine and you'll still not have what happened This book makes no sense I'll give you what I did understand thoughSo Ash saves Clayton from dying in the prologue and in the first chapter they're suddenly casually declaring their love Ash is a hardcore swimmer who breaks a world record and gets swept up in her mother's dream of stardom Then she suffers a devastating accident that changes her life forever Claytondraws I guess? He has a sassy chain smoking Finnish grandma and that's about all I can really say The Writing and Worldbuilding? So is this an urban fantasy or a magical realism fever dream? I honestly don't knowThe book felt like two distinct coherent stories chopped up and smashed together 1 Ash the swimmer and her power hungry emotionally deprived mother facing the aftermath of a terrible accident; 2 Clayton and his grandma chill and she regales him with stories about his grandfather who was a soldier in Korea And then suddenly there's mystical drawings because you can accidentally draw things and water lover mermaids and Cuba All in less than 200 pages It was a mess honestly The grandma was the only interesting character and her love story told entirely in anecdotes was real passionate and believable than the forced mess between two wooden planks I was supposed to be invested in for no discernable reason The Characters Ash Between the two of them she definitely had personality but honestly she was so unrelatable She was always talking about her training and her mystical connection to the water and as someone who has literally never swam in my life I'm a wimp and not standing on solid surfaces freaks me out okay? I couldn't relate whatsoeverClayton You'd think I related to him because he draws and so do I but but he was so boring He spends the whole book in Ash's shadow being vaguely confused And honestly same I guess we do relate lolBlythe Excuse me while I look for character arcs for any of these characters Oh wait there aren't any Blythe is just as mean and stubborn and unreasonably villainous as she is at the beginning by the endCoach Dwyer How do you pronounce that? D why er? D w ear? Who knows?Tuula Heck yeah give sassy chain smoking Finnish grandma Conclusion I kinda hated this book It sucks Don't read it when it comes out Except maybe if you want Tuula in your life which is a good reason Read it for her She's totally worth it
