Sweet, dreamy, often funny, Newbery Award-winning author/illustrator Lynne Rae Perkins' family-at-the-beach story evokes a lazy summertime vibe and a safe, loving world of family, friends, and nature. If you're looking for action-packed adventure, Secret Sisters of the Salty Sea is not for you. But if you've never built a sand castle or released a falcon into the wild, young protagonist Alix's experiences will give you a vivid sense of what that's like.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
