Then she meets Adam.

*I received this book for free from the Author (via YA Books Central) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Bailey has recently lost her parents to a violent crime. She and her younger sister Tilly  are desperately trying to get on with their lives. Their grandmother takes them to a family resort to try to relax and forget about their problems. There Bailey meets a new gro

Summer camp gone wrong?
The summary of Underwater promises "a lot of secrets," "sinister truths," and "heartbreaking love triangles." However, Amazon says that this book is 194 pages and it's even less than that on iBooks - 169 pages. I feel like the length (and the writing style in general) don't really do all the promised "dark secrets" a whole lot of justice. Most of what was revealed - with both Bailey/Tilly and Clare's backgrounds - felt pretty skimmed over and not very... satisfactory.

This is a very good story suitable for young adults and older adults, like me. The story is about Bailey, a girl with many scars and wants to keep her past just the past. But when she catches the eye of Adam, his ex-girlfriend Clare isn't as impressed with the new girl and becomes jealous.Clare will do her best to make Bailey look bad to everyone. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book. The review is my own opinion.

A deep, unique and compelling read. Cleverly told, slowly revealing the darker backstory. Enjoyed the range of characters, and the symbolism of the boy's red shorts as the MC struggled to overcome her past. Great writing.

Helen Vivienne Fletcher wrote her first novel between the ages of thirteen and sixteen. It is, by several accounts, one of the funniest novels ever written. It’s just a shame it was supposed to be a psychological thriller.

Helen has worked in many jobs, doing everything from theatre stage management to phone counselling. She discovered her passion for writing for children and young people while wor
