We Run the Tides: A Novel

We rated this book:


Eulabee is a young girl growing up in the 1980s in San Francisco. We Run the Tides tells her coming-of-age story as she makes friends, loses friends, experiences puppy love, and starts to understand the dynamics of her own family as well as the families of her friends, Julia and Maria Fabiola, who come from very different families.

One day, Eulabee and her friends walk past a white car and the man in the car asks them the time. As they walk past, Eulabee’s friends say that they think they saw the man doing something inappropriate in the car. It is at this point in the story that we reach a turning point because Maria decides to unfriend Eulabee because she won’t say that she thought this was what happened with the man in the car.

I really enjoyed this story. Eulabee is an interesting girl who is carefree and has.a very inquisitive personality, which is likable. She seems very mature for her age. I didn’t expect the story to fast forward at the end to 2019; however, I really enjoyed this aspect of the book and actually wished the author had made this part of the story longer.
