Description

From a stunning new voice in YA literature comes an epic, utterly unforgettable contemporary novel about a lost shipwreck, a missing piece of family history, and weathering the storms of life.

The Larkin family isn't just lucky - they persevere. At least that's what Violet and her younger brother, Sam, were always told. When the Lyric sank off the coast of Maine, their great-great-great grandmother didn't drown like the rest of the passengers. No, Fidelia swam to shore, fell in love, and founded Lyric, Maine, the town Violet and Sam returned to every summer.

But wrecks seem to run in the family: Tall, funny, musical Violet can't stop partying with the wrong people. And, one beautiful summer day, brilliant, sensitive Sam attempts to take his own life.

Shipped back to Lyric while Sam is in treatment, Violet is haunted by her family's missing piece - the lost shipwreck she and Sam dreamed of discovering when they were children. Desperate to make amends, Violet embarks on a wildly ambitious mission: locate the Lyric, lain hidden in a watery grave for over a century.

She finds a fellow wreck hunter in Liv Stone, an amateur local historian whose sparkling intelligence and guarded gray eyes make Violet ache in an exhilarating new way. Whether or not they find the Lyric, the journey Violet takes - and the bridges she builds along the way - may be the start of something like survival.

Epic, funny, and sweepingly romantic, The Last True Poets of the Sea is an astonishing debut about the strength it takes to swim up from a wreck.

incredible read. rich, real story, beautiful prose

I just can't get over how much I enjoyed this book. hit really close to how Ive felt as I've gotten older, slowly learning that everyone is complicated, love is complicated, life is complicated and nobody has figured it out.

Teenage drama queen NOT mystery book

If you’re into teenage drama then read this but if you are looking for an actual mystery thriller book steer away from this book. I cringed the entire book from all the immaturity of the main character and how all the characters speak. I would recommend people to not read this book.

good core story, Really annoying dialogue

I liked the book. it was a good story with a lot of complex issues addressed. I believe if I had read it instead of listened to it I wouldn't have been annoyed that every piece of dialogue was followed by "said" no replied, no whispered, no shouted...nothing even MORE creative beyond that. I will say I did enjoy the book, i work in a factory for 10 hour shifts and chose this book because of the runtime. It made work go by faster and I did enjoy the story. If you can get past a few cliches and enjoy the story you'll like it but if you're picky then I'd suggest you still give it a try but don't expect masterpiece.

Great story, decent narrator

I picked this story since it was free and I was curious due to the cover. While the narrator gave a decent enough performance it wasn't anything to write home about. The story itself however was very engaging and moving. A good slice of life showing the struggle someone can go through at any given time.

Good story, but the narrator intrusion clouds the book

This book was surprisingly likable and interesting. However, the voice actor’s narration intrudes through the entire book. She reads it like it’s a slam poetry reading most of the time, which I found very annoying. I would have liked to have interpreted this book with my own imagination instead of this voice actor’s high drama warbling act. So maybe better to read the old fashioned way.

Loved it!

I wasn't expecting much from this book but I was very surprised. Great characters and I was able to relate to all of them.
