Warning - This Review Contains Spoilers This book was amazing, to say the least. Although I did read it in a couple of hours, I was addicted to the quality of writing, the setting, and the attention to detail. The dialogue and the deeply formed relationship between Gwen and Jesse had me hooked. Gwen and Jesse, basically, aren't an ordinary couple. Sure, they talk just like any other teenager, but Jesse has always had this air of mystery. Gwen, however innocent she might be, is wrapped in his spell as she cannot help but be drawn to him. She forgets about his strange, mysterious disappearances, and is convinced that he is the perfect guy. Either that, or she accepts him for who he is. Maybe this is for the better, because Gwen forms a bond with Jesse that cannot be broken. Early on, their attraction for each other was undeniable. I have always loved the sea, and incorporating the folktale of the selkie was absolutely enthralling. I kept guessing what was going to happen - one minute, I would say, "no, Jesse isn't a selkie. He couldn't be. He's too perfect." And the next minute, I would think he was. But that was just it. Anything that's too good to be true, usually is. And in Gwen's eyes, Jesse was the guy of her dreams. Gwen was, at first, afraid to trust Jesse. She knew he was the boy of her dreams, the boy that night. But she just couldn't bring herself to see what would happen next. When she went with her heart, instead of her head, she found Jesse to be everything she was looking for. He could even read her mind, so everything that she was afraid to say, he could just as well hear. Although Jesse couldn't tell Gwen the truth for a long time, the sadness in his eyes when she left, or when she didn't spend time with him, showed the bond in their relationship. The author conveyed a beautiful picture of forbidden love, and played along with the rhyme wonderfully. Gwen and Jesse's relationship came to a frightening turn, but it certainly was not over. This book left me satisfied, yet still wondering what would happen next. Gwen and Jesse have a long road ahead, but sure to be filled with romance and tears, in this enchanting novel. A powerful, and enjoyable read for anyone who wants a little romance added to their summer. This novel shows just how far love is willing to go. Gwen and Jesse will be a favorite couple of mine for a long time.

I would give it a 4.5 star rating if possible only because I felt the book ended abruptly and I'm afraid there is no plan for a sequel! There was so much time put into Gwen's relationship with her grandmother and not enough with her true love! I was disappointed with the ending and feel so many question were left unanswered with no sequel.

I'm not kidding when I say this is the BEST book I have EVER read! It keeps you interested and begging for more! It's fast-paced and full of mystery and romance. You'll be rooting for the main characters the whole way through! SEVEN TEARS INTO THE SEA is about a girl named Gwen and a mysterious boy she met on the beach when she was ten. The boy whispered something in her ear that has haunted her ever since. Seven years later she returns to Mirage Point. There is this mysterious boy who keeps showing up everywhere. Why is she so drawn to him and the sea? You'll just have to find out! Gwen has to learn what truly happened on that night seven years ago but can she face her destiny? I have recommended this book to all my friends and I would recommend this book to anyone else (well anyone who's at least 14). SEVEN TEARS INTO THE SEA is a truly wonderful story and I wouldn't pass it up if I were you!!!

I actually read this in two days. It is now, officially my favorite book of all time. At 165 pages, I at first felt that perhaps it would be too short. But after finishing it and reflecting, it was because of it's length that it is so spectacular. And warm and magical and rich. I was and still am transported.

It is one of my all time fav reads. The main character is far from a ditzy girl like in a lot of roance stories and you cant help but to fall in love with each person. Its easy to get swept up in the story that unfolds.

I REALLY liked this book. Sure, the name sounds a little cheezy, but it was a really good story!

Gwen Cooke was 10 years old when chronic sleepwalking led her onto a midnight beach and into a world of Celtic magic, mystery and danger. Was her encounter with a boy with dark, slightly tilted eyes a dream? Were the words he whispered before vanishing, a spell? In the wake of gossip over what really happened to Gwen, her family moved away from their seaside home and Gwen never saw the boy again. Now seventeen, Gwen is returning to her childhood home. She says it's because her grandmother asked for her help at the Sea Horse Inn. But Gwen knows it's time to go back for another reason: She yearns for the sea. Perhaps the sea itself is calling to her. Perhaps the memory of the boy and his haunting words are drawing her back to the place they met. Perhaps it's time for her to face her destiny. It's been seven years since Gwen has visited the seaside community that once was her home. At 17, she's decided to help out at her Grandmother's coastal inn for the summer and try to figure out what exactly happened years earlier when her family fled the place. On her first day, she meets Jesse and he finally starts to shine some light on her past and what is to come. This book was full of mystery, romance, and old-time community folk lore. I enjoyed it a lot since it brought to life a not-so-well-known myth (Scottish Selkie) that was a fun twist to the traditional mermaid stories. It's definitely a quick/lite read, easy to get caught up in and the ending will keep you wanting more and googling if there's a sequel (which sadly . . . there's isn't one) once you reach the last page! Good Summer Read!!! Likes: It's a perfect balance of enchantment and suspense. Dislikes: The story was too short (I wanted more!) and the reader understands things a lot quick than Gwen does.
