Description

An achingly beautiful and wickedly funny story of female friendship, betrayal, and a mysterious disappearance, set in the changing landscape of San Francisco

Teenage Eulabee and her alluring best friend, Maria Fabiola, own the streets of Sea Cliff, their foggy, oceanside San Francisco neighborhood. They know the ins and outs of the homes and beaches, Sea Cliff's hidden corners and eccentric characters—as well as the swanky all-girls' school they attend. Their lives move along uneventfully, with afternoon walks by the ocean and weekend sleepovers. Then everything changes. Eulabee and Maria Fabiola have a disagreement about what they did or didn't witness on the way to school one morning, and this creates a schism in their friendship. The rupture is followed by Maria Fabiola's sudden disappearance—a potential kidnapping that shakes the quiet community and threatens to expose unspoken truths.

Suspenseful and poignant, We Run the Tides is Vendela Vida's masterpiece depiction of an inimitable place on the brink of radical transformation. Pre–tech boom San Francisco finds its mirror in the changing lives of the teenage girls at the center of this story of innocence lost, the pain of too much freedom, and the struggle to find one's authentic self. Told with a gimlet eye and great warmth, We Run the Tides is both a gripping mystery and a tribute to the wonders of youth, in all its beauty and confusion.

        November 16, 2020
        Vida spins a spirited if uneven coming-of-age yarn around a girl’s disappearance in 1984 San Francisco. Eulabee, 13, is growing up in Sea Cliff, where she and her charismatic best friend, Maria Fabiola, along with their friends Julia and Faith, attend an elite all-girls school and know the neighborhood front and back. One day, while Eulabee is on the way to Faith’s house with the other three girls before school, a man in a white car asks her for the time. Differing accounts of what happened next cause a schism between Eulabee and Maria Fabiola, but shortly after, Maria Fabiola disappears. In Maria Fabiola’s absence, Eulabee becomes friendly with skateboarder Keith, and even gets up the nerve to invite him to a Psychedelic Furs concert. Their friendship eventually leads to a tragic denouement for all concerned, as more kids go missing and the truth finally comes out. Despite a bountiful final section set in 2019, in which Eulabee confronts her memories and the characters’ fates come full circle, the various threads don’t quite cohere. At its best, the novel channels the girlish effervescence of Nora Johnson’s The World of Henry Orient while updating Cyra McFadden’s classic satire The Serial, but it’s not quite enough to fully satisfy.

      • content: Marin Ireland's powerful performance captures a girl's joy and disillusionment in this compelling coming-of-age story. Thirteen-year-old Eulabee is best friends with the enigmatic Maria Fabiola, and they are on top of the world until the very grounded Eulabee begins to question the truth of what Maria says. Ireland's voices for all the characters consistently evoke their distinct personalities, both as teenagers and grown-ups, and reveal the complexity of their friendships with one another as Eulabee journeys to adulthood. The moody backdrops of San Francisco and its nearby sea cliffs are showcased by Ireland's resonant timbre and sensitive pacing, which capture the lyrical quality of the prose. Ireland's evocative narration is well suited to this atmospheric story. M.F. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
