Morgan is a child of the sea. Raised by nomadic Norwegian parents who encouraged her to chart her own course, and filled

An extreamly lopsided book. Very slow and -where is this going?- starting then all of a sudden it's major action, suspence and then it washes back to calmer waters. It could be worth reading if you can stand the rollercoaster ride.

this book is great... at the beginning it wasnt that interesting because i didnt really understand that they were building up to something intense. then of course i got to the intense part and its soooo gooood!
This was a strange and amazing book. Took a whole different turn in the middle which sent the story on a thrilling ride with a great ending. I want more books from Susanna Vance. Both her SIGHTS and DEEP were so good!
Birdie is a teenage girl that is trying to find herself. This book sounds like any other typical teenage drama. However this one is different. She has a best friend Kirin, who became the next biggest thing. Now that her best friend has made new cooler friends, Birdie is just some lame who happens to be convent. Since people know the affiliation between the two girls, it some what makes Kirin feel like she’s a lame too. The suspense begin to build up between the two girls when Birdie finds out al ...more
Birdie has lived a sheltered life in Riverton, Oregon, for 13 years. Now she is off on the trip of a lifetime with her family, a year in the Carribbean. Morgan has lived her whole life on the sea, and now that her parents are no longer functioning, she has set sail on her own. The two girls cross paths after Birdie is kidnapped by a crazed pirate named Nick. Morgan comes looking for his help in forging papers, but she is the one to help as both girls struggle to survive.

I love how in this book, the author told the story from two people's perspectives. I had predicted that the two would meet each other sometime during the book. i could hardly put it down. I can see that most people didn't like it too much. The author's writing shows how different the two main characters are but how similar they are at the same time. Great book.

This book was weird but it had to do with abduction. Don't get me wrong it was smooth sailing when i was reading but weird book filled with two-person point of view, psycho kidnapper/murderer,and two brave girls where i admire now.
This book was different from lot of books I have read. It was told from two different points of view switching back and forth between each chapter. It was a slow start but all in all an ok book
I Wasn't sure about this book in the beginning but then the action starts and the set up makes sense. Loved it in the end.
So unmemborable that I checked it out from the media center again because I didn't read it the first time.
