I love how Maisie's teacher, Ms. Porter, puts a journal prompt on the board each morning for her students. She does not read it or grade it. ( )

Middle-schooler Maisie is recovering from a torn ACL. She misses her friends from ballet, and doesn't really have any friends at school; she also doesn't really care about her school subjects, and her grades are falling. Maisie sinks further into misery on a February vacation week trip with her mother, stepdad Jack, and younger brother Connor, as she hears about her ballet friends' auditions and acceptances into summer programs and struggles with how to respond. Finally, on a hike, Maisie trips on a root and re-injures her knee, forcing her to reassess her dreams for the future.

Maisie's mom is Makah, from Washington State; her biological dad was Piscataway, from Baltimore, but was killed in Afghanistan. Jack is also Native, of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. Maisie knows a little bit about each tribe's history - the whale hunt, for example - and seems comfortable in her own Native identity, though she does not explore in much in this story.

Maisie is such a relatable character. She dreams of being a professional ballerina, and though she's happy for her friends' successes, she's devastated for herself, and desperate to get back into the dance studio. She's lonely at school, and in her unhappiness, she says things to her family that she regrets, and has a hard time making right. Ultimately, a conversation in which Maisie's mom reveals more of her own personal history helps, and Maisie begins therapy - not just for her knee, but for her emotional health. A short section ("four months later") shows Maisie's growth trajectory.

Back matter includes an author's note, acknowledgments, a note from Cynthia Leitich Smith, and the first few pages of I Can Make This Promise


Sometimes, the evening news feels like the worst kind of entertainment. Like we're all just here to witness each other's tragedies. Or to make fun of other people's choices. To make us all feel crushed and frustrated. To remind us that we live in an uncaring world. (113)

"[See-yah] believed that the health of the river reflected the health of the community." (Jack to Maisie, 128)

Everything in this forest is drenched in a cold sweat... (142)

Mom reaches out. She cups my cheek in one warm, gloved hand, and turns me to face her again. And she says, "Dreams change." She says, "Realities change. People change. We all go through it in different ways." (150)

"I kept imagining these impossible scenarios where something was different, where some small detail could have changed the outcome of our story." (Mom to Maisie, 186)

"None of this means that you've failed....It just means that you're moving forward. Which is about the bravest thing any of us can do." (Jack to Maisie, 190) ( )

Definitely on the quieter side, this is more character development than eventful plot which maybe won’t work for everyone but I found it emotionally engaging..

With a knee injury endangering her ballerina aspirations, twelve year old Maisie struggles in her friendships, academically, and psychologically, but a family trip may be just the test she needs physically and mentally to push her to deal with the changes in her life.

The family trip is very much based in the outdoors and connected to Maisie’s Indigenous heritage. As a reader who can sometimes get a little bored when it comes to descriptions and historical facts, I thought the author did a really solid job of incorporating those things into the narrative in a way that didn’t slow things down or feel like info-dumps, the descriptions were vivid and the history interesting.

I felt for Maisie throughout and her arc is handled thoughtfully, the book doesn’t make it seem like her problems can be solved in a snap yet at the same time it offers hope for her future. I liked that her story didn’t just end where it could have, it continues long enough to get a satisfying glimpse of where Maisie is headed and the effort she’s putting in to get there.

My very favorite thing though in The Sea In Winter, even more so than the ending, was pretty much every scene involving Maisie’s family. Her little brother both annoys her and adores her which felt very true to life. I loved that her mom and step-dad are super caring, tough when she needs it but plenty gentle, too. I was particularly fond of Maisie’s relationship with her step-dad, one of the most memorable and heartwarming moments of the book involved the two of them, an icebag, and microwave popcorn. ( )
