Kiara Moore died at the University Hospital of Wales, just days before her third birthday, after being pulled from a silver Mini in the River Teifi. He is drowning and surrounded by blue.

Surrounded by his mother and three aunts, he lives day to day, struggling to keep his head above water. All the townfolk are just a little quirky, a little offbeat, but that's okay because they have deep bonds that weave them If we lived in an era where written works were still earmarked as classics, this book would definitely be a classic.
We swim against the current, trying to get back to the way we once were, trying to hold onto anything to keep us from getting swept away. I give you this and that story. I felt what you felt and there was no way for me to make it better for you except by reading to the end. Maybe it was the length -- it's loooonnng. Maybe it's possible after all.
But Roseland is no ordinary place. I'm not a religious person, and I mean at all. Like I did so many of the secondary characters, such as Benji's best friend Abe. Since then I have been nervous to read it. It can't be demonstrated that his is the correct response, but it can't be rejected, either.
When Calliel descends, the pace picks up and things can never be the same — not for Benji, not for Roseland and maybe not for the world. I was so sad when I finished because I wanted to read more so I went back to find some of my favorite parts to read them again. Not until a man falls from the sky, leaving the burning imprint of wings on the ground, does Benji begin to understand that the world is more mysterious than he ever imagined—and more dangerous. I would have told him I loved him. It is a ode to an impossible love between two seemingly very different people. He drowned in a river and it was deemed an accident. Benjamin Edward Green is mine, and I will do what I must do protect him.
I would have looked him in the eyes to see that spark of mischief, that undying intelligence that belied his gruff exterior. That's why it's hard to choose.

He was there when Benj's father died, but he can't remember why. Yes, the grief that Benji has over his father's death is overwhelming and perfectly articulated by the author. The story and the characters were something that you can easily relate to which is why you can feel every single emotion that the characters felt.
It's a swift current , the river separates the two cities of Shreveport and Bossier City. I was lucky to read a number of amazing books and to discover some new authors that have quickly become very dear to my heart. Cal doesn't remember how he got there. I was completely blown away by this story. The E-mail message field is required.
Oh, the power of faith! Even years later, he's buried in his grief, throwing himself into managing Big Eddie's convenience store in the small-town of Roseland, Oregon. So it could be said that their atoms love each other since the beginning. They were standing in knee deep water on a sand bar when the sand suddenly gave way. Maybe I just wasn't ready. The story was really more that of a love story between Benji and his father, Big Eddie. I've never had such an emotional reaction to any book before. I truly enjoyed the debate about God and pain and loss in here.
The moments after Call arrived I was was laughing. It turned out he was the first boy to fall into the water. The premise, the story in and of itself, the characterizations and most of all, the message it conveys--just gorgeous.

Five years ago, Benji Green lost his beloved father, Big Eddie, when his truck crashed into a river. Not until a man falls from the sky, leaving the burning imprint of wings on the ground, does Benji begin to understand that the world is more mysterious than he ever imagined--and more dangerous.
