Carry the Ocean – The Roosevelt #1
Bookreview / May 5, 2015

Carry the Ocean is a new novel by Heidi Cullinan and is part 1 in the new Roosevelt series. I was really looking forward to reading this one actually, being that it was hyped up so much on Facebook and Twitter. And what do I think now that I finally read it? All I can say is that I really really recommend this book to everyone. If there is only 1 book in your life to read, it is this one. I wasn’t even half way through the book and it already made me cry twice, it was just that good. Jeremey Samson is a young boy and regularly has panick attacks and is the victim of clinical depression. However, his parents don’t believe him and are just telling him to be better and suck it up. His mental state is going down hill fast. But then he meets Emmet Washington, a young autistic boy that lives right behind him. Emmet is smart, funny and in Jeremey’s eyes very handsome. But because of his autism he has several problems of his own to deal with. When Jeremeys depression reaches a dramatic climax, Emmet is the guy who is always there…
