Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz

Summary:(from goodreads) Be careful what you believe in.Rudy’s life is flipped upside-down when his family moves to a remote island in a last attempt to save his sick younger brother. With nothing to do but worry, Rudy sinks deeper and deeper into loneliness and lies awake at night listening to the screams of the ocean beneath his family’s rickety house.Then he meets Diana, who makes him wonder what he even knows about love, and Teeth, who makes him question what he knows about anything. Rudy can’t remember the last time he felt so connected to someone, but being friends with Teeth is more than a little bit complicated. He soon learns that Teeth has terrible secrets. Violent secrets. Secrets that will force Rudy to choose between his own happiness and his brother’s life.
Review: I have been a fan of Hannah Moskowitz for a while now so I excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. It's different than her other books. This one has a magic element which I liked a lot more than I thought I would. It's hard for me to write this review because I can't pinpoint exactly what it is about this book that I liked so much. Rudy and Teeth were both really great characters and despite the circumstances they were relate able. i think the two of them is really what made this book for me. It wasn't really a book about magical fish but about the friendship these two develop. I was drawn into the story pretty easily. Despite the magic involved everything about this book just felt so real. Not sure how much sense that makes but it's true. The only thing that I didn't like about this book is the way it ended. I wish it could have had a more satisfying ending. I will definitely be reading more of this author's books in the future.
