Customer Reviews

Great book, wonderful style of writing!  August 4, 2011

I really enjoyed Olive's Ocean. The story was very good and it was different then most books. One thing that was a little weird was I read this textbook right after a 7th grader at our school passed away... it was a big coincidence for me. I would recommend this textbook to most everyone.

Olive's Ocean: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Sometimes life can change in an instant

Martha Boyle and Olive Barstow could have been friends, but they weren't. Weeks after a tragic accident, all that is left are eerie connections between the two girls, former classmates who both kept the same secret without knowing it. Now, even while on vacation at the ocean, Martha can't stop thinking about Olive. Things only get more complicated when Martha begins to like Jimmy Manning, a neighbor boy she used to despise. What is going on? Can life for Martha be the same ever again?

"Olive Barstow was dead. She'd been hit by a car on Monroe Street while riding her bicycle weeks ago. That was about all Martha knew."
