On a wild Scottish island a tragedy washes up on the storm beaten shore the bodies of a whale and a man Fraser desperate for adventure and Hayley visiting from Texas become tangled in the mysteryBut Frase See of my reviews on The YA Kitten My copy was an ARC I got from the publisher for reviewSo I m right in the middle of a big reading slump It s rare that I want to read lately Instead I d rather play video games and though someone could say it s because I ve been absorbed with the new Pokemon game that just came out it had already been happening even before the game s release I ve also been doing puzzles on my phone because I looooooove puzzles I think I just need a really really good book to kick me in the pants but Washed Ashore was not that book At allThe ableism baked into the worldbuilding was a massive problem so we re gonna talk about that first According to the novel gairmies are people on the Scottish island of Nin who can speak to and summon whales Willie McGregor an old man who lives on the island tells our fourteen year old male lead Fraser about how gairmies were boons to the island s whaling industry in the past but gairmies were usually a bit peculiar on land Willie then presents the example of a man who always found whales in the water but uncontrollably sweared at people when on land Fraser s brother Dunny has autism and it turns out Dunny is a gairmie tooSo yeah neurological disorders mental illnesses and developmental disorders are explicitly tied to one s ability to summon whales The book carries the implication that something must be wrong with a person s brain to connect to the whales in such a way Its Othering of people who live with these conditions is both vomitously disgusting and poor worldbuildingOh and Tourette s is reduced to swearing but you can t help it like that s the only way the neurological disorder ever shows in people How reductiveOH OH and this is the single vaguely paranormal bit in a novel that s otherwise a straight contemporary about two kids who meet a man named Jonah who s fled Lesotho via human trafficking and wants to get to London so he can find his brother The gairmie nonsense feels out of place when considering the book as a wholeOur main characters Fraser and Hayley are as thin as thin gets and the portrayal of Dunny s autism in conjunction with the ableist worldbuilding above isn t particularly flattering The Jonah plotline is the only thing in the novel with any potential or good points but it manages to feel out of touch as well considering the refugee crisis that s been going on in Europe for the past few years Millions of people like Jonah have risked their lives trying to get to Europe but he feels secondary in the book when he absolutely is notFrankly the only reason I finished reading the book instead of abandoning it for something better was to tell people about the ableist worldbuilding For that I felt I needed the context of the entire book Try Shannon Gibney s Dream Country instead if you want a novel featuring refugees and the desperate desire for both freedom and a better life Beyond the Pale up on the storm beaten shore the bodies of a whale and a man
