Book Review - The Lost Coast

The Lost Coast

About the Book

The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.

Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery — and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.

My Take on the Book
This book is one that draws you in and encourages you to keep reading from beginning to end. The book is full of description that creates a vivid world that the characters inhabit. You will be placed in the middle of a mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. The author uses words that creates pictures in your mind, which in my perspective makes the book one that I would encourage all to read! While the story is about a teen, this book is more than just a book for teens, but for adults too. This is a book that brings in different gender identities and allows you to learn and appreciate the relationships between the characters as well. By the end of this book I wanted to go and read it again to experience it over again for myself and you will too!
