The Infinite Noise is a perfect blend of teenage abnormal normalities, presenting common issues such as social pressure, mental healthiness, and sexuality while also bringing the twist of the much rarer gifts of an empath, or one that can feel everyone's feelings around him.

I think that the cover is beautiful. I like that the illustrations of the plants and things in the background give the cover the feel of the ocean since the book is called Last True Poets of the Sea. The most compelling aspect of this book was that the main character was hunting for a lost shipwreck that one of her ancestors survived. I thought that the plot of the story was really interesting. The only thing I was disappointed with in this book is that it seemed to take a while to get the story going, the beginning was a little slow.
