We Run the Tides
Neighborhood. In some ways, the neighborhood of Sea Cliff, a San Francisco neighborhood, is a character in Vendela Vida’s novel titled, We Run the Tides. We meet teens Eulabee and Maria Fabiola and see their friendship and school life at an all-girls private school. There’s silliness and drama. We find deception, cruelty, honesty and betrayal side by side while truth is elusive in their world of the 1980s. As with the changes that come with adolescence, what was familiar about Sea Cliff also changes. With great writing and efficiency, Vida presents all the confusion of growing up and being at the center of the only world that matters.
