characters The Line Tender 107 Kate Allen í 7 summary ??meaningful” but no one can tell Lucy what it all meant To survive the fresh wave of grief Lucy must grab the line that connects her depressed father a stubborn fisherman and a curious old widower to her mother’s unfinished research If Lucy can find a way to help this unlikely uartet follow the sharks her mother loved she’ll finally be able to look beyond what she’s lost and toward what’s left to be discovered. Synopsis Lucy loses her marine biologist mom when she s young The summer she s 12 her best friend who happens to be a boy dies Which is pretty predictable And then there s sharks PLENTY OF SPOILERS AHEADThere was a lot that just didn t mesh up in this book for me First off the time period is very hazy At first I thought it was modern day and it s 100 pages in before we realize that it s all taking place in the mid 90s There s this weird this is what a real woman looks like conversation between Lucy and a friend that comes out of nowhere seriously they re just in a comic book store looking at comics and the friend tells Lucy Real women don t look like that Which first off I ve always had issue with the REAL women discussion We re all REAL Anyway later on it s shown that this friend has kind of been an older sister figure to Lucy so this conversation makes sense but we don t have that info at the time of the convo at all and it feels very random Then there are callbacks to it throughout the book again even though it didn t seem very important or like the characters were dealing with some deep seated issues there Of course the big crux of the story was obviously going to be Fred dying Saw it coming from page 1 But it was a weird situation and I didn t get how it happened He jumped into the uarry came back up was fine and thengot trapped by a tree How did that happen And I also saw that they were going to end up together if he hadn t died except Lucy didn t So she s spending all this time trying to figure out what s happening and were they going to be than just friends and I m like um duh girl Everyone knew that was going to happen Pretty dang obvious there Let s get back to the story Which isyou somehow need to find your mom s old study because of closure or something And everyone is treating the study as though it s this huge mystery to be solved whencouldn t you just READ it to figure out what she was proposing And then talk to the local other marine biologists to see if they d heard of it because um they probably did and huh turns out that they ve actually been working with it for years and it truly isn t a mystery and you took half the book to find out what they d known all alongAnd you re weirdly terrified of sharks even though your mom obviously taught you plenty about how noble and magnificent they are and your mom didn t even die from being eaten by a shark so where d this fear come fromMy copy was an ARC and maybe some of these concerns will be fixed in the final edition but here goes Some of the writing felt very disjointed like the writing didn t match up with what the author was intending to have happen or describe There s a scene where Lucy s having a conversation with Fred s mom everything seems perfectly normal and then suddenly Lucy s sobbing Then the writing makes it seem like everything s back to normal And then she s crying Like the words and descriptions on the page didn t convey the entire scene the way it was playing out in the author s head I understand that grief manifests differently from person to person but this wasn t a grief thing It was a writing thing Also another scene she s looking for her dad who hollers that he s down in the basement She goes down into the basement And he s startled to see her there A lot of really bizarre similes it made a noise like a tub of Vaseline falling into the toilet the way strangers hang around useless like when someone has had a seizure in a grocery store The smell was pungent like opening a fridge that contained a rotting animal Very descriptive but these are coming from our 12 year old narrator How many 12 year olds have seen multiple people have seizures in a grocery store Or opened fridges with rotting animals insideIt had a very sweet ending but the whole rest of the book just felt very awkward to me
