I didn't know how I felt about this book when I first started it at the end of September. If felt just like the name of the title--this grayland where our protagonist, Marina, lives in a state of limbo. I could connect to her on some level, not only because she is hispanic, but because I too have felt like my life is at this stalled point where I don't know how to move forward. It's scary because you're supposed to know what you want to do and when and where. You're supposed to enjoy life, but you don't know how. So I could understand Maddie on that depressed level she lives in, and also on being the sister of a sibling who has been molested. All throughout the story though, I had one reoccurring question: Who is the gray man? While I never do get a response to that question, I do think he stands as a sort of symbol of depression and a representation of wishes we ask life to grant us. Like do-overs. I think he is freaky though, along with that creepy locket Marina finds that haunts her when she tries to get rid of it. This gave me a lot to think about in regards to how people deal with life and grief, but more especially about depression. It made me reflect on my own life. 4 Platypires.
