One thought on “One Year in Coal Harbor, by Polly Horvath

  1. This book did a pretty good job of not leaving any questions about the first book for people who haven’t read it. I read the first book a long time ago and i don’t remeber it very well. I had no questions, but i still felt that something was missing. I guess that the way the author sometimes mentions the previous book in the story and it seems so much more exciting then what we are reading about. Like all the main character seems to do is go around places with Ked and try to help and not really help. Also, i did not like th end. It was not really a cliff hanger but it left on kind of a sour note, so when ever i think about the book i don’t remeber the good parts only the bad parts.
