Rumi Seto spends a lot of time worrying. What to eat, where to go, who to love. But one thing she is sure of she wants to spend her life writing music with her younger sister, Lea. Then Lea dies in a car accident, and Rumi is sent to live with her aunt in Hawaii. Now, miles from home, Rumi struggles to navigate the loss of her sister, feeling abandoned by her mother, and the aching absence of music. With the help of the "boys next door" teenage surfer Kai, who doesn't take anything too seriously, and old George Watanabe, who succumbed to grief years ago Rumi seeks her way back to music, to write the song she and Lea never had the chance to finish. With unflinching honesty, Summer Bird Blue explores big truths about insurmountable grief, unconditional love, and how to forgive even when it feels impossible.

“A heartbreaking novel about grief and re-discovering yourself after loss”

My thanks to Net Galley and Black & White Publishing for the ebook copy of this novel to review.

I don't read that much YA contemporary fiction, so this was a wee step out of my comfort zone, but I'm so... More

“A realistic portrayal of grief and sexuality”

*3.5/4 stars

I struggled a lot with the character of Rumi. She's definitely not someone I could see myself being friends with in real life. She's an extremely jealous and judgemental person and it was hard... More

I love Akemi. Starfish is one of my favourite YA books, hence I was looking forward to this. I hoped it wouldn't disappoint. And, I'm happy to report, it didn't.

Although I didn't entirely fall in... More
