I honestly didn't like this book. Hard to read. Gave up.

I liked this in theory, more than I did in practice. I'm always down for a book about witches with lgbt characters and lots of girl power, but this kind of missed the mark for me. What I liked: -The writing was very flowery and sort of poetic -The general plot was interesting -The characters were diverse -The majority of the book was engaging (Kind of irrelevant but, the cover is so pretty) What I did not like: -The writing was SOOO flowery, almost to the point that it was too much -The character's voices confused me, because they seemed too similar -Some plot points were not explained well so I found myself asking, "what just happened?" many times This book is a combination of Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson mixed with Wild Beauty by Anna Marie McLemore mixed with Toil & Trouble edited by Tess Sharpe. So if that sounds like your jam, maybe this is for you. If you do not like very lyrical/flowery/fluffy writing then this is not for you, at all.

Title: Lost Coast Author: Amy Rose Capetta Pages: 352 Release Date: May 14, 2019 Genre: YA Fantasy Series or Stand Alone: Standalone People of Color?: Yes LGBTQ?: Yes Bechdel Test: yes Trigger Warning: None I received a free eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Really enjoyable read! The chapters are a little haphazardly put together and from multiple POV, so for the first few chapters I had a hard time with what was the present, flashback, and who was who. But if you just push through this bit of confusion, you are rewarded with a tale of magic, friendship, and love that are all just too big to fit into neat little boxes. We meet Danny, a girl newly arrived in Tempest, CA from Mighican after causing a lot of trouble for her parents (leaving school, running away, etc.) and has also come out as queer. In this small town, she finds a close-knit group of LGBTQ witches (the Grays) who have cast a spell to bring Danny to Tempest to find their missing friend, Imogen. As she spends time with them, she learns to live in tune with the natural world around her. The novel follows Danny and the Grays on a quest to find their missing friend as time is quickly running out. Likes: Loved the Grays and the redwood setting. Also their understanding of what makes magic magical. Recommended for: Those who like romantic fantasy or YA contemporary with a bit of magic thrown in Ages: teenage and up
