Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for providing me with a copy of A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor. I absolutely love young adult literature (YA), and I think only recently it became mainstream for this genre to allure adults as well. I think it's the escapist appeal and how it evokes nostalgia. What drew me to this book initially was the relationship between the two sisters. This is a tale of survival and love, and the cataclysmic event that ripped their bond apart. As an older sister, I had a hard time reading and trying to understand how they could treat each other the way they do. It almost seems artificial at times, until you realize what lies at the complexity of one bad decision. What I love about this book is the element of suspense. It had me turning pages well into the night.
