    Reading this swept me into the sea alongside the characters. I didn’t want to stop reading but I also wanted to savor the unknown pages as long as I could. I wish all books made me feel and think and see the way The House in the Cerulean Sea did. Lovely.

    Amazing book! Definitely a favorite, I love all the characters, especially the kids. Not because of their powers but how each of the kids follow their passion, like Talia with her garden and how sal starts to write. The story is amazing, and the plot fantastic! An overall great story! I would love a sequel!
