When a German soldier's dog bolts in front of Leen's truck, in a fraction of a second, she must make a choice: brake hard, or hit the gas.
 
She floors it.
 
What happens next sets off a chain of events that pitches Leen, just 15, and her family against the German forces when they are most desperate - and fierce. Leen tries to hold her family together, but despite her efforts, bit by bit everything falls apart.
 
And just when Leen experiences a horrific loss, she must make a decision that could forever brand her a traitor, yet finally allow her to live as her heart desires.
 
Readers who want to immerse themselves in a story with both a plot and characters that keep the pages turning will love River in the Sea.

For fans of The Book Thief, Those Who Save Us, and Sarah's Key.
 
Inspired by events experienced by the author's mother, River in the Sea is a powerfully moving account of one girl reaching adulthood when everything she believes about family, friendship, and loyalty is questioned by war. Appropriate for teen readers age 16 and up.
More praise for River in the Sea:

"Two words I could say to sum up this book are 'enchanting' and 'emotional' ... it blew me away."
--RJ Moore

"It is beautifully written ... I didn't really feel like this book was a war story. It's more about how a family deals with the effects of war and the aftermath."
--Kara Malinczak, Great Imaginations

"Tina Boscha's prose is exemplary; her protagonist in River in the Sea is highly sympathetic; and her setting of Friesland, Netherlands, is alive with details. I fell in love with her tender gaze at the world she creates."
- -Samrat Upadhyay, author of The Guru of Love

About the Author:

Tina Boscha lives in Oregon's Willamette Valley with her husband and stepdaughters along with two nutty boxers and one silly black cats. She is an Oregon Literary Arts Fellowship recipient and her work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She teaches composition and technical writing, and for her next novel, she is working on a good old-fashioned ghost story.

Review:

Praise for River in the Sea:

"Based on her parents' accounts, author, Tina Boscha, writes tragically, sensitively and honestly about life on the harsh North Sea coast during the German occupation ... The book is well written and historically significant ... Boscha has best-seller potential."
--Portland Book Review

"Her book is engrossing and horrifying at the same time, a tale of what it's like to be hungry, sick and worried that life, family and freedom will never be the same again, all the while terrified that it won't matter because death will take it all."
--Register-Guard


"This enovel is beautifully written, with descriptions and details that are exquisite and eloquent. Boscha is not only a competent writer, she excels at it."
--eNovel Reviews, February 2012

"River in the Sea is a fascinating delve into coming of age tales, recommended."
--Taylor's BookShelf, Midwest Book Review Bookwatch

"I was riveted within a few dozen pages as one of the pivotal events of the book unfolded. Right riveted ... And the pacing was so well done - I could not put it down."
--Jessica, The Bluestocking Society
