    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.

    An unexpectedly complex gem I’ll come back to repeatedly

    Holy WOW, this was incredible. It did take me a little while to get into- I don’t think the book description is really that accurate, and when I realized that the characters were all high schoolers I almost put it down. Still, I’m so, so glad I didn’t. The characters and the stakes they faced were all incredibly real and the drama was tight and death-defying. Yes, the kids do sound way older than I feel like high schoolers ought to, but honestly, if there had been a museum or an aquarium in my hometown to work at when I’d been that age, I probably would’ve sounded like that, too. And playing hide-and-seek with Twelfth Night through the text was actually kind of fun. I’m recommending this to a few of my
    friends who still really enjoy reading YA coming of age fic, and also to a few others, just because.

    Tavia Gilbert’s performance was jaw-dropping. You can always really tell the difference when you get a narrator who’s done live acting vs one who just reads like the book doesn’t exist beyond paper. I did have to pause when she did the panic attacks, because it got a bit too real, but maybe for someone who doesn’t actually have panic attacks it would be fine. Seriously, also, in case anyone needs an empathy lesson. Spot on.

    I’m already planning on coming back to this for a repeat listen, at some point. I really appreciated Julia Drake’s sense of developing the depth of characters; how someone can be impulsive and make decisions they know aren’t great in the moment and be hurting and see poetry in the world and just want to relax and be tired and no want to explain themself and long for something more, how someone can have to words for some things but not let others surface at all, and all at the same time. Beautifully done.

    I hated this

    Wanted a book about a shipwreck hunt, but got a book about a whiney privileged teen with a sex addiction who couldn't have a conversation without the reader having to listen to her internal monologue about how hot the person was. I rage quit the book with only a few hours to go. I never did find out if they found the shipwreck.

    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.

    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.

    It's entertaining in a weird way.

    Most reliable moment in the first 8 chapters:
    "Aren't you an adult?"
    "Not a very good one."

    Let's just say when the book isn't trying to 180 your mood or fill you with teen angst, it's actually kinda funny in dumb ways that I love. Like spending 3 minutes laughing over "LIV STONE", and laughing now as I write that.

    I love a story that can make me laugh one moment, and worry I'll have an anxiety attack triggered by a character having a panic attack the next. I live a weird life and this feeds into it in an oddly satisfying way.

    It just ends…

    It was left completely unfinished. This was not a page turner but it kept my sporadic attention over the course of a week or so. I can knock out books longer than this by consuming them almost non stop. There was no urge to do that with this book. There was so much story development around the overarching theme and it was just left unaddressed at the end. The voices were well written but the finally leaves me saying don’t bother. There was a beautiful word play drawn from a letter describing how to persevere when drowning by holding onto one pebble at a time until they make a shore. That was beautiful and I will tuck it in my pocket and let the rest float away with the unfinished parts of the story. If you want a story about a shipwreck, move along. If you want a metaphor about love and life and turmoil, mental health, and family… you might like this. I give the story 2 stars because of how it ended. I miss the finality of what actually happened outside of the relationships of the story.

    Entertaining and easy to follow!

    Interesting characters and good story line. Some Characters are more like able than others. The plot had some moments that didn’t seem to advanced the characters. The performance, however, made it ALL, all worth it!

    Narrators emotion was a little too “extra”

    I enjoyed the book. Would be suitable for any age, kind of more YA in my opinion but it was hard to get past the narrators emotions she was forcing on the text. Fake crying often just made me cringe.

    Poignant, timely, honest, a little too artsy

    This story is artfully written and artfully read. I’m definitely going to listen to it again. Themes I enjoyed that some might want to know about before jumping in: mental health struggles, including suicide, developing sexuality, adolescent substance use, teen experience of adults being good people doing their best with what they have.
