I received a free audio copy of this book for an honest review.
To Hear the Ocean Sigh is a coming of age story that starts out pretty slowly. Jay Murchison is 16 years old, shy, not popular, and lonely. When he mistakenly receives a text from Saphnie, a girl his age, they start texting back and forth and form a friendship. She suggests that he read a book, Rudderless at Sea, and because of that book, he ends up making some friends. The characters discussed Rudderless at Sea in depth and I felt lost when they did. It would have helped to have known a little more about that book.
The story picked up pace toward the end as relationships between the teens evolved or devolved. These are typical teens with typical teen behavior and relationships. The narrator was chosen well. He sounded like he was in his late teens and he was pleasant to listen to and easy to follow. To Hear the Ocean Sigh is well written and both adults and teens will be able to relate to the story.
