    1. Airelynn Trask on said:

      I so rarely give books five stars because, as the common English teacher constantly remarks, there is always something that somebody will see fantastic while another sees it as merely stereotypical or overdone As I indulged this novel, I believed I could see where some may find discontent but I adored it for that very reason It was a chilled bundt of gelatin sullenly moving on with its day I found it calming and relaxing no matter what was happening Craze writes beautifully It has been almost a [...]

    2. Debbie Petersen on said:

      A wonderful summer read that perfectly captures what it is like to be 12 years old and on the cusp of adolescence, trying to figure out your place in the world I found myself drawn back to that time in my own life, recalling the agony of wishing to fit in with the cool group, trying to make sense of the behavior of the adults around me, the boredom of schoolwork, etc The love story that serves as backdrop is sweetly delivered and realistic I enjoyed the beach town scenery and the many lovely tur [...]

    3. Dianne on said:

      This was a nice read It was good for a first effort by actress Galaxy Craze yes, I checked, it s her real name It is set in the 1970s, in a English seaside village The main character is 12 yr old May, a loner type She lives with her mum Lucy and little brother Eden in a former girls school now a Bed Breakfast The plot revolves around how May feels about things the coming and goings of her mum s friends and her dad and the male writer, Rufus, who comes and stays to get some work done in the quiet [...]

    4. Cheryl on said:

      A rather quck vacation read The characters in the novel are interesting and can easily be pictured in the readers mind The young May seems to need some slight push to help her understand herself and become a stronger person One can only hope that she will somewhat acheive this in her crazy mixed up upbringing Seems like her Mother is sweet and trying but lets herself slip into her old party ways Mom is too weak and easily influenced by her friends and circumstances.

    5. Rick Hocker on said:

      This story is told from the viewpoint of an 11 year old girl A mysterious writer stays at the inn that her mother owns and manages Nothing monumental happens in this book, but the author exquisitely portrays the girl s impressions, feelings and longings with beautiful metaphors It is not a book I would normally read, but I enjoyed the rich language and lovingly crafted sentences.

    6. Gabrielle on said:

      Reminded me that writing fiction is a worthy pursuit I loved this novel.

    7. Susan Holman on said:

      I read this book several years ago and liked it way this time A page turner with words of wisdom in between.

    8. Mellanie C on said:

      I did not like this book I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing really did.

    9. Kate on said:

      The sun is sweltering Sweat drips from your every pore and your muscles ache from heat exhaustion Nothing sounds refreshing than a cool glass of ice water.Similarly, the school year drags on It is past the middle of the last quarter of the year, and exams and papers have piled up And right now, nothing could be enjoyable and refreshing than reading Galaxy Craze s By the Shore.What makes By the Shore so enjoyable is not the writing, although it is good, and not the humor, although it is funny, [...]

    10. Michelle on said:

      I thought this book was confusing I was not clear of the point The mom seemed a reluctant mom which as a single mom does not help matters May seemed to secretly hold disdain for her mother who seemed to place her being a mom on another priority I seriously was beyond myself and almost put the book down when she left before finishing or feeding her child dinner a 6 yr old home alone so she could chase the father of the to be second child around to a bar, wow and he did not stick around shocker Lu [...]

    11. Gemma Lolos on said:

      By the Shore is definitely one of my favorite books It is a great read, and Galaxy Craze s prose is refreshingly clear and beautiful She perfectly captures the spirit of a twelve year old girl with the character of May, which adds a great deal of depth to the story I was instantly hooked the moment I began reading, and I admit to re reading the novel multiple times since finishing it It is a gem, and a excellent first novel for Craze.

    12. Julie on said:

      This is a rambling story of a young girl with a depressed mother who had two children while living a rock n roll lifestyle of sex and drugs then later bought an abandoned school and turned it into a boarding house that has only two guests during the time period of the novel I didn t love it, but I also didn t hate it It was easy to put down and easy to pick up again.

    13. Karen Benson on said:

      The fact that it took me nearly a month to finish this speaks volumes A checked out mother with two children makes for a sad existence I basically found it just sad for everyone involved I don t really see myself reading any other novels by this author definitely not my cup of tea.

    14. Christa Forster on said:

      Towards the final chapters, I sensed that she was running for the end Like she wanted to get out of the novel However, I still liked the story, found myself hoping for the ending I wanted and received.

    15. Rachel Strang on said:

      I liked it, but the book didn t really have a point to it.

    16. Jennifer on said:

      beautiful, concise writing and characterizations of a mother and her children, male lead a bit fuzzy though.

    17. andrea on said:

      This ended up being way better than I expected Much than a beach or poolside read there s some great substance here.

    18. Jamie on said:

      This has, I think, been my most long standing favorite book, this and Rebecca It s so poetic and pretty I really do love it.

    19. Sarahjane on said:

      I really loved this book, I read it a few years ago but it stuck with me.

    20. Sarah C on said:

      Best book I ve read this year It is a quiet little book I couldn t let it go afterward.

    21. Ellen R on said:

      Galaxy Craze is a gifted writer I wish she published often This book sucks you into the life of a young girl and doesn t let you go Great read.

    22. Julie Ehlers on said:

      This was a simple story, but very sweet and lovely in places, and quite emotionally astute.

    23. Daisy on said:

      I resisted this because of the author s name but when I gave in, I remember being kind of charmed by the story It reminds me of Hideous Kinky or that reminds me of this, I don t remember any .
