Sadie Fitzgerald has always been different, and not just because she makes her own clothes and would rather stay home watching Doctor Who than party with kids her age. When it’s time to leave Angel Island for college, Sadie is eager to put her old life behind her. Small-minded people and rumors have plagued her for years, but with the love of her adoptive family, the O’Dells, Sadie has learned to embrace who she is. Now she’s not afraid to admit the rumors about her are true: she’s gay.
For the first time in her life, Sadie feels free to be herself. She dives into college life and begins volunteering at the local LGBT center, where she discovers her small-town upbringing left holes in her education about life outside Angel Island.
The world is a bigger and more accepting place than Sadie ever imagined. She’s finally found where she belongs, but with the reappearance of someone from her past, an unexpected new friendship, and a chance at love, Sadie soon realizes she still has a lot to learn about life, friendship, and love.

Praise for the Book
"This is a great read and I can't recommend it more." ~ Robyn Almquist
"A great addition to the Angel Island series. The storyline is well written and the characters have great depth. Knowing your different, being made fun of growing up, never being able to fully embrace who you are, struggling to find your place in the world! There are new adventures and obstacles to overcome, new friends and mistakes along the way. This is a great read and impossible to put down." ~ tkdmom

"Take Them by Storm is a powerful New Adult contemporary. If pressed, I would describe it as a romance, although there is so much more than that within these pages. Sadie Fitzgerald is our main character, and her vibrant voice guides us through her journey of self-discovery and self-love." ~ M. Moran
"Take Them By Storm is one of those books that takes you by surprise. Not that I've ever doubted Marie Landry's talent, just that it's a new kind of new adult novel with more to it than just potential romance. It's a journey to discovering yourself and where you fit into the world around you. I loved seeing everyone from the first two books in the Angel Island series again - especially seeing the strong bonds Sadie has with both River and Ella. I would highly recommend this story to anyone and everyone!" ~ Jessica Sankiewicz
