Amy Richie’s “Crashing Waves” is an alternative future world short story. Very interesting – kind of a cocktail of the best elements from Waterworld, Hunger Games, and a few other tales. The character development is excellent. I love the vision for society and the rules. I’d like to see where she goes next with this and also to read a prequel to see what happened just before this story. Very powerful little tidbit.

I enjoyed reading Crashing Waves, but it wasn't what I expected. I was a quick read, but not action packed. This is a book a girl would relate to much more than a boy. There is the concepts of rape, child birth, forced marriage that boys could not understand. The end is open ended and I would love to read what happens to the main characters in the next book. If you are looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this isn't it. If you are looking for a book that will make you stop and think about your world, this is the book for you.

Rani is a strong girl even in an oppressed society. This author did a great job of describing internally how Rani felt, and externally how others saw her. Even though things are far from American mainstream in this book, strong vs. weak is a prominent theme. I enjoyed this story very much as well as Black Dolphin, book #2!
