Book Review: I Am Water

Hannah works as the only female river-rafting guide in her close-minded small town. Labeled as a tomboy, she often struggles to reconcile the way she fits into normal gender stereotypes. Hannah meets Ezra, who blurs the lines between woman and man. They begin an exciting new relationship, but soon Ezra starts pushing Hannah’s limits and her definition of love.

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

So, I want to start this review with transparency, I do not like books written in verse. I really wish it had been clearly stated that this book was one written in verse. With that being said, it was a good book. 

The theme of the book is all about finding yourself and about first loves. I particularly loved the growth of the main character, Hannah. Her growth felt very pure and realistic. I loved the general “self love” theme. 

I think the author tackled some very hard to touch topics like homophobia, sexisim and discrimination in a very easy to understand way. 

Despite my aversion to books written in verse, I did really enjoy this book and I want to thank the publisher, author, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
