Book Review - Secrets of Topsea: The Extremely High Tide!

Secrets of Topsea: The Extremely High Tide!

About the Book
Talise knows more about the ocean than any kid in Topsea. Any adult, too. As the best-and only-bathymetrist in Topsea, Talise is able to predict important things about the sea, like the next tide (Severely Low with a threat of Wildcard) or the arrival of Seaweed Season. What she can't predict, however, are her classmates' behaviors. Sometimes it's as if they're speaking different languages.

When Talise discovers a mysterious message in a bottle, her classmates believe it must have been sent by someone stranded on a deserted island. (Not to be confused with a dessert island.) But Talise is convinced the message is meant for her. And it's telling her to build a boat.

Everyone seems to think Talise is just being silly. Even Talise isn't exactly sure why she has to build the boat. And who keeps sending those strange bottled messages, anyway? All Talise knows is that she'd better finish building her boat fast, because an Extremely High Tide is coming?

My Take on the Book
If you loved the first Topsea novel that I reviewed earlier this year, you will also love this second book in the series. In this book Talise is back using her unique gifts to predict things about the sea, but what she cannot predict are the messages she keeps receiving that make her think that she needs to build a boat (even though she does not know why). She also continues to be challenged by her classmates about why she is trying to build a boat when they believe the messages say something completely different. This book continues to shows great characters that you will really love to get to know. Overall, this is a great second book in the series and we can't wait for the next book in the series!
