The Line Tender by Kate Allen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Very sweet coming-of-age-story about a young girl living on Cape Ann. The characters are beautifully written, quirky, fresh, and real. Although slow and underwhelming at times, it was completely enjoyable. Since I was born and raised in Gloucester (and still live here), the local references were super fun to read. Also, my undergrad degree is in marine bio. Loved reliving the science. A heartwarming read for sure. I think the kiddos will like it!
