Quest. Why does a teen run away from home? That’s the question Chloe Aridjis explores in her novel titled, Sea Monsters. Seventeen-year-old Luisa leaves home in Mexico City on a quest to fulfill her obsession. Her decisions and choices are exactly what one would expect to flow from the unformed teenage brain. While Luisa heads to the Pacific on her quest, her father tries to find his missing daughter by using every possible connection he can uncover about her whereabouts. We are all on a search for meaning, and in that way, Aridjis pulls us along on our own quest as she explores what Luisa has to teach us all.
