When disaster strikes, Camille finds hope in a letter from her mother. Check out kidzworlds book review and summary of Everlasting, a historical fiction book for teens by Angie Frazier.

Title: The Everlasting
Author: Angie Frazier
Ages: 13+
Rating: 4


Sailing with her father is all Camille Rowen has ever known. But being 17 years old in 1855 means it’s time for Camille to become a lady. No more taking to the high seas. No more adventure. It’s time for her to settle down with a respectable and wealthy man. Lucky for her, one of the most desirable men around has chosen her to be his wife. There’s only one problem: Camille has no feelings for him.


The Final Voyage

Before the wedding, Camille goes with her father and his crew on her final voyage. That’s when Camille discovers the truth that her father has kept from her for so many years: her mother is alive! And she sent a letter asking her father to bring Camille to her home in Port Adelaide, Australia before she dies.


The Shipwreck

Then disaster strikes. A powerful storm smashes their ship to pieces. The only people to survive are Camille, an unlikeable character named Lucius, and a 19 year old crewman names Oscar. Camille is distraught. Her beloved father is gone! At least she has Oscar, the man she secretly has feelings for.


The Resurrection Stone

In the letter, Camille’s mother mentions a map. But it’s no ordinary treasure map. It’s believed to lead to an ancient stone that has the power to bring someone back from the dead. If Camille found it, she could resurrect her father! But there’s a problem: her father’s archenemy knows about the map. And he’s after the stone too.


The Bottom Line

A pinch of romance, a dash of adventure, and handful of determination. Everlasting is a great book for teens, particularly those who enjoy historical fiction. Tell us what you think of Everlasting in our comments section below!

Do You Like Romance Books?

  • Yeah, I love 'em! It's all I ever read.
  • Only if they have a good plot.
  • I'll read them every once and a while.
  • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.

thanks for posting this Kristen. I think that it is a tough subject to talk about with other people and honestly I think it's good to talk about it in a moderate amount. Now that more pepole are being diagnosed with learning differences or some sort of other mental health disorder, I think that talking about it and informing people will only make it easier for people to feel less awkward or the odd man out. That's how I found about that I am not the only person in the room who has ADD. I'm more willing to come out and talk to people and discribe what I have to go through on a daily basis to raise awareness. School will always be hard for me so I look at my strengths to help push me forward in life.

Oh wow, a genuine trigger warning. Did the memes teach you nothing?  First off, an actual warning. Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional.  Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV).  My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with.  Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.
