Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser
My review: 5 of 5 stars
Song of the Current swept me away immediately with adventure and excitement. Tolcser’s careful attention to detail made her created world come alive. With a savvy and plucky heroine to lead the adventure, Song of the Current was often amusing as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp down the river. Recommended for older teens due to the sex and violence.
“The god at the bottom of the river speaks to us in the language of small things” (p. 72).
“A heroine is always someone who wants out” (p. 206).
“There is a reckless freedom in leaving behind everything you know” (p. 236).
“Maybe we can leave things behind, yet still hand on the the best parts of them” (p. 350).
The sequel is out as well.
