Waiting On Wednesday #7

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Sea by Heidi R. Kling

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen-year old California girl Sienna Jones reluctantly travels with her psychiatrist father’s volunteer team to six-months post-tsunami Indonesia where she meets the scarred and soulful orphaned boy, 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 won’t her dad tell her the truth about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to finding answers.
And Sea’s real adventure begins.

Although I've never been to Indonesia, I absolutely loved a trip we took to Vietnam and Cambodia when I was thirteen and I've wanted to explore East Asia ever since. Aside from the setting and promising plot, the cover of this is absolutely beautiful and I want a copy just to stare at it. Continuously.

More posts after exams finish today! :)

  10. I've been to Cambodia too - isn't it amazing?! I love novels set in foreign countries.

  11. Lenore- It was incredible! Especially Angkor Wat. (Though climbing down those steps was one of the scariest experiences of my life!) I really wish I could go back, but I'm booked up with expeditions and work experience for the next two summers!
