The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti

Back Cover: Since being diagnosed with Panic Disorder, Jade DeLuna is trying her best to stay calm, and visiting the elephants at the nearby zoo seems to help. That's why Jade keeps the live zoo webcam on in her room, which is where she first sees Sebastian. When she finally meets him, their connection is immediate, and soon Jade is drawn into the cozy life Sebastian has with his son and his grandmother on their Seattle houseboat. Even though the situation is complicated, Jade hasn't felt this safe in a long time. Until she learns that Sebastian is hiding a terrible secret. A secret that will force Jade to decide between what is right, and what feels right... This was another great book by her. It did seem kinda slow maybe at the beginning with the guy in the red jacket and I guess there was time to just learn about Jade, btw love her name, and how her life is, but ya know. I loved learning about the elephants and the quote at the beginning of every chapter, are they real? well whether or not they are I liked it. And the elephants sounded so amazing, like they feel everything just like humans do. And it's so weird, because it talks about in the book how she liked counted off words or whatever on her fingers and saw if it ended on her pinky. I used to do that! Like syllables, and it's so crazy that it's in a book that someone does that. I thought I was super weird about that! But anyways, Jade and Sebastian just click and they make something up that's not perfect, but that molds together perfectly. It was sad when he had to leave, and it was crazy that Jade's mom is the one who caused it. Speaking of her mom, she was like the teen in the house going to all the dances and things while Jade didn't. I liked that, how it was different than normal situations. Reading things that aren't always the same makes you learn stuff too. But yeah I'm just slowly moving along with my books, relaxing pace! No rush anymore :]
