Carly is a university drop out and now she works in a dine as a cook, only nigh turns because she needs to surf in the morning. Surfing is the only activity that helps her forgetting what happened before university.
Carly is living in a limbo, but she will be able to overcome her issues thanks to the relation with Ryan – a surfer recently out of jail – and the friendship with Daniel, a boy who has synesthesia.
By the same author I recently read Summer Skin, one of the few new adult book that I liked, and this brought me to this novel. I think Raw blue is less engaging than Summer Skin because it is a lot about surfing (something I don’t do and don’t know about), and it provides a lot of details about this sport that did not catch my interest.
Taking the full novel into consideration – and not only the surf detail – it is a good one, interesting and able to deal with complex theme without solving every issue with a love relationship: Carly gets better also thanks to her new friends (Danny, her new neighbour).
Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar ★★★☆☆
