The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water by Anne Spollen
A year after her artistic mother's death, fifteen-year-old Maggie puts aside her desire to set fires and hopes for more solidity in life, as her down-to-earth father prepares to marry a like-minded woman and sell their home on the Staten Island shore.

...This enchanting novel starts quietly, draws the reader in and weaves a seductive spell that holds until the last page.

I read this book over the summer and gave it to my 15 year old daughter. We both loved it. Very unusual writing for YA - poetic and lyrical, a welcome surprise in this genre.
