A wonderful summer read for a middle grade reader. One of the threads in the book explores some of the ways in which science and art are connected. In the beginning of The Line Tender, the main character, Lucy, identifies as an artist and feels distanced from math and science. Later in the book, Lucy follows the trail of her late mother’s shark research to learn more about the white sharks that are appearing off the coast of Massachusetts. She uses her drawings to better understand shark anatomy. And scientific and artistic exploration becomes a means to human connection for Lucy.
