Searching For Sky - Jillian Cantor

Oh, good. River is back. Ughhhhh.


Why do we keep throwing random things into this book? "Helmut killed your father!" "Helmut is evil!" "Mother didn't bleed like a woman for a long time and then she bled a lot and Ocean healed her!" She's such a child. Absolutely nothing about what was going on in the book at the time warranted Sky telling us about that. It's adding absolutely nothing to the plot. Sky is basically childishly suicidal by running into the ocean and being all like, "It'll take me baaaaack" full well knowing she'll probably drown.


And now River is back, and I just can't even with this anymore. I CAN'T EVEN.
