The Time Will Come #14

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company where we can highlight any books that we've had sitting unread on our shelves for ages- books that we really want to read and never seem to get around to reading.
About September/ October time last year I kept seeing reviews on the blogs for Sea by Heidi R. Kling, and it looked like such a good book, very emotional and romantic- that I went ahead and bought it. Unfortunately I still haven't found a chance to read it yet, and it's still sitting on my shelf. I love the cover for it too, it looks like a photograph underwater with daylight shining through. I think it looks like a modern love story about a teenager in Indonesia following the tragic aftermath of the 2004 Indonesian tsunami.

Synopsis from the book cover:

Sienna Jones has had a hard time dealing with the loss of her mother three years ago in a plane crash over the Indian Ocean. Nightmares and fears of the ocean and planes haunt her. So when her father asks Sienna to join his international relief team for two weeks of her summer vacation to help tsunami orphans cope with their losses, she thinks he must be kidding or crazy or both. But wanting to help wins out over her fears, and she makes the long and frightening trek to Indonesia.
  What she finds there is the most handsome boy she's ever seen- Deni. He's mysterious and brooding. Everything about him and the way Sienna feels about him is intense. Their connection is instant and true, so when he hears word that his father may have survived the awful tsunami after all, Sienna doesn't hesitate to run away with him into the epicenter of the tsunami disaster. She knows about the kind of hope that's driving Deni, and she wants to see him through whatever he'll find back home. She knows they're taking a huge risk, but she doesn't expect that what they find might break both their hearts...
