The Sea is Salt and So Am I is the story of Harlow, and her friends Ellis and Tommy, who are twins. Harlow and Ellis have a co-dependent relationship, although sometimes they don't seem to like each other very much. Tommy and Ellis love each other, but then also don't really like each other or even talk to each other very frequently. It's also the story of coastal erosion and how climate change can destroy our way of life.

I honestly am not sure of my feelings for this book. It was beautifully written, and I appreciated how carefully the author dealt with Tommy's mental health issues. However, I did not always like the characters, especially Harlow and Ellis, and I didn't always understand their motivations for their behavior. I also felt like the story moved a bit slowly - for a young adult book, this took me longer to read than I had anticipated.
