Catherine Ryan Hyde is a marvelous storyteller. I finished "Allie and Bea" in record time and I now wish I would have slowed down when I read it so I could have savoured it more.
It tells of human weakness and more importantly of human strength. "Allie and Bea"
is a very unique and heartwarming story. With Lots of life lessons imparted along the way.
What begins as a tragically unique experience for both Allie and Bea, results in a captivating adventure along the Pacific Ocean. As the two of them "spar" with each other along the way, their gradual openness and honesty demonstrates the possibility of what life and friendship could be like. I enjoyed the subtle humour throughout, the style of writing - it is just a delightful story! Highly recommended.
