Miranda and her two brothers Cal and Jackie live in a hotel by the sea. They swim with the seals, surf and generally have a great time of it. Miranda is a nature lover, Cal is the nicest surfer dude you'd ever want to meet and Jackie is an admirably troublesome little bro. But the hotel isn't doing well and when their parents take a decision about the future that the children just can't live with, the adventure really begins.
This story was quite different to any of Kennen's previous books. I didn't know where it would go next and I found it really entertaining. Highly recommended.
The book started off well, I was intrigued and wanted to know more, it was a fairly unusual start that made me want to know more, but by the third chapter it became quite slow in my opinion, the characters and situation are built up so you get to know them.
From the blurb of the book I expected this fun, easy book but you are about 130 pages in before the events in the synopsis even start happening, the rest before that is jsut the build up and I found myself hoping the book would get to the point.
For just over 200 pages I should have been able to read this in a couple of hours, as it was I carried it around with me for 5 days, reading odd bits now and then, but I just wasn't hooked enough to want to sit and read it, I kept finding something else to do.
Once the story got going the second half of the book wasn't bad and I liked the big mystery at the end. It got more exciting as it went on. But I wouldn't want to read anymore from these characters. To be honest the big brothers 'beach talk' really started to irritate me, I just wanted him to speak in normal sentences. But I suppose it was trying to fit in with the feel of the book.
I think children will probably like it, It's got enough mystery and the whole - kids being alone and causing trouble vibe to keep them reading, but for me I wasn't blown away.
