Description

I enjoyed Cerulean Sea, especially once our milquetoast hero, Linus, makes his way to the orphanage and meets the very special children The Department In Charge of Magical Youth wants examined. ETA September 2023: Holy Prussin Ratf*** I have just learned that this book was inspired by the "sixties scoop" https://indigenousfoundations. The children in this story are all heart-breaking, and funny (the BEST parts of the story), and you'll fall in love with them all. The message is essentially "This place isn't so bad, they just needed to find someone in the system who cared about them.

Lambda Literary Award-winning author TJ Klune’s bestselling, breakout contemporary fantasy that's " 1984 meets The Umbrella Academy with a pinch of Douglas Adams thrown in. He will spend one month in the island and he will not examine the well beings of the children but he will also investigate the master Arthur Parnassus and the way of doing his job. These aren't bad lessons by any means, but they are simplistic, almost constant, and is a lot of 'telling' not 'showing' - something I expect to read in a YA book and/or Little Women (don't get me started on that book). With every single day that passes, Linus questions the reasons behind the actions of Extremely Upper Management. Arthur’s lightness of heart is infectious: he is a study in kindness, made of such a steadfast and dependable fiber, despite the sadness that haunts his eyes.It may not fit quite the same, or work like it did once before, but that doesn't mean it's no longer useful.

But however grim the novel’s resonance with the real world is, The House in the Cerulean Sea is always leavened with hope. While he’s been assigned as the caretaker of this Orphanage, it’s very clear that he’s stepped into a larger role in the children’s life. Oh, it's a sea, not an ocean but the ocean is an ocean in the fairytale) seemingly keeps the living creatures (I meant that) in it separated from the rest of the world (sometimes I feel the word world is so undramatic. Once the story starts to actually get going, we are then hit left and right with lessons that the kids and Linus 'learn'. The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope.Being queer himself, TJ believes it's important—now more than ever—to have accurate, positive, queer representation in stories. The story also encourages one to be brave, both in terms of standing up for those around you and challenging views, but also in terms of living one's own life. Because it always has its way to unravel the muscle fibres of my heart to distinct skeletal, smooth and cardiac.

His direct manager and supervisor spend their time mocking him and his colleagues have no respect for him, considering him a joke even though they are all the same cogs.This story is heartwarming with undertones of the underdog rising up and believing that they are enough.
