Children tend to believe something a guide/mentor tells them. They’re young, and cannot really understand that each person has their own magic within them. This book takes that idea in a literal sense.
I remember old Goosebumps books which had multiple endings, and the reader would be guided by his/her choice. When I read the blurb of this e-single book, I was reminded of that.
I’m neither very fond of traveling, nor fond of seafood. When this book came my way, gifted by a friend, I didn’t know if I would like it. The author travels from coast to coast, following fish, but as it turns out, the book isn’t just about fish as food.
It is rare that I watch a movie before I read a book, but that was the case here. I found the movie online, and it was engrossing. I felt the book would be just as good, if not better. So picked it up quickly.
