Anne Osterlund (Author of Academy 7)
Big Water is a fictional tale based on a real shipwreck on The Great Lakes. Chi ama i libri sceglie Kobo e inMondadori.
Such a great story with the best characters: When Aerin opened or closed her protective lid, I was wondering if it was a genetic modification or she had alien blood or whatever. There were a few flaws, mainly due to the short length of the novel. As it was, it was more along the lines of “The Host” in its sci-fi-ness. While the connection Dane and Aerin form is central to the story and takes up a large part of the plot, it is more based around the development of mutual trust and understanding.
I can see you on the lsterlund hiding the front cover, to save yourself embarrassment. My first little hiccup, being a very visual reader, was the overuse of adjectives in the first pages of osterlumd story this habit mostly stops once we get to the school – when the author talks about the round fingertips of the captain I was wondering why it had osterljnd be explained and whether the other people had rectangular ones.
But escape is ostrelund the beginning – and Academy 7 is not about Aerin’s daring escape. They sort of complete each other like a puzzle piece: And we are so, so happy when Aerin and Dane find and confide in each other, two lonely souls that are able to find some peace together.
They are at the top of their class annr Dane jeopardizes everything and Aerin is unintentionally dragged down with him.
But Dane’s life has not been as comfortable or as glittering as it appears to outsiders and his father’s public mask hides a man who can be cold and cruel. Getting past those little niggles down the back, the beginning was terrifically avademy until Aerin gets taken on by that starship and seems to see no one important except the captain.
It didn’t help that I really didn’t like them all that much. As I was reading the last couple pages, I couldn’t help but imagine a sequel. I liked this book, but I often wished for more details as I was reading it.

I noticed in your profile that you are “polishing” another book as well – I can’t wait: Some may find the book a bit slow because some conversations, like the part where Dane teaches Aerin how to form an argument in a debate, are quite unrelated to the plot of the story.
Refresh and try again. Aug 17, Every young citizen of the Alliance between the ages of sixteen and seventeen is given the Academy Entrance Exam. I have a thing about books with spaceships and planets and space and stuff. I also appreciated the subtle building of characters through their actions and dialogue.
View all 5 comments. Books by Anne Osterlund. I know what you think when you look at this book. Thank you, joE mo, for listing this as one of your all-time favorites. I am looking forward to reading both of your books and seeing what other books you can recommend! Anne Osterlund is the author of Aurelia and Academy 7, and is also a sixth-grade public school teacher and drama coach. I really want to read Exile!
That doesn’t work for me so well. Academy 7 is one of my favorite teen fiction reads so far this year. Led by the a group of appointed leaders known as the Council, the Alliance enforces a charter designed to encourage peace, harmony and unity among the planets — that is, when politics doesn’t get in the way. Two teens–one essentially a refugee, the other the son of a very powerful man–are accepted to Academy 7, the most prestigious school in the universe.
If both make a good argument, then the less popular side wins because that side had further to go to prove its point. On the other hand, this book left me with a clear picture of the characters in mind.

I am all about expanding my book horizons, these days. I finally got the book, after some delays, and found myself disappointed. Like Aerin, Dane Madousin is brilliant and resourceful; unlike Aerin, Dane has grown up with privilege and power albeit with a controlling, hateful, and abusive family.
