The Kayak by Debbie Spring
'The Kayak' is a novel published by Thistledown press. This novel was entertaining and a page-turner! It begins... "THE CHOPPY WAVES RISE AND FALL. My kayak bobs like a cork in the swirling waters of Georgian Bay." The first line enticed me to read the entire novel. It drew me in for more. Teresa, a sixteen year old, uses a wheelchair. Every summer she goes camping and kayaking. Her kayak is her freedom.
One day, she is out in the water during a storm and rescues a windsurfer named Jamie. Their relationship flourishes and she learns eventually that her insecurities can be conquered.
I give this novel four out of five books. It's a great read!
Stay tuned for the next review of the 'Silver Anklet'.
