Still haunted by nightmares of her mother's death, fifteen-year-old Sienna Jones reluctantly travels to Indonesia with her father's relief team to help tsunami orphans with their post traumatic stress disorder--something Sienna knows a lot about. Since her mother's plane went missing over the Indian Ocean three years before, Sienna doesn't do anything if it involves the ocean or planes, so this trip is a big step forward.

But the last thing she expects is to fall for Deni, a brooding Indonesian boy who lives at the orphanage, and just so happens to be HOT. When Deni hears a rumor that his father may be alive, Sienna doesn't think twice about running away with him to the epicenter of the disaster. Unfortunately, what they find there could break both their hearts.

A compelling summer romance, Sea marks the arrival of a stunning new voice in YA.

This is my first novel that has I honestly became so inspired by, I wanted to jump in the book and help in the Pesantren. I truly loved how the author gave us enough details about the customs in Indonesia. I felt while reading I should be wearing a Jilbab. The way Indonesia is portrayed along with their people is perfectly written. The Story takes place 6 months after the tsunami hit the shore of Aceh.

Sienna is the main character we follow through her grief from loosing her mother 3 years before while her mother was on a mission in Thailand. Sea is her name given by her best friend Spidey, who she has in interest for in her hometown. Sienna Dad for her birthday gives her the gift of traveling to Indonesia with him and Team Hope. She has not been on a plane or water since her mother's disappearance in the ocean. So Sienna father does this to help her start getting better and hopefully learn to cope. They arrive and Sienna sees how the orphanage needs her help as much as she needs their help too. She has to stay in the girls room and learn to adjust to their customs of showering and eating. She then meets Deni, the mysterious boy with a limp. She is intrigued by him and start to get to know him more, while breaking rules. They build a beautiful sweet relationship and Sienna and Deni help each other cope. I don't want to give to much of this Beautifully told story of Love, Loss and breakthrough. It will inspire you I guarantee it.

Terima Kasih! (Thank you!)
