it was amazing
Read from April 30 to May 04, 2012

It took me all of two days to read this book and even that was two days too long. If I didn't have work, a household and kids to take care of I would have had this read within hours. I absolutely LOVED this. The characters, the story line, everything. The only part that suck was that now reading it before the book is out I have to wait until next Winter before book number two is released.

The story draws you in by making you love the main character, Gemma, from the beginning. You're intrigued at how dedicated and how much she loves swimming and her love for the water and you love how her romance starts with boy next door, Alex. It wasn't until the middle of the book when I started to like her older sister, Harper. She's a tough cookie and is the backbone to their family. She's like a mother to Gemma since their mom is in a mental institution. In the beginning I thought, "Wow can we get anymore paranoid?" but in the end Harper won me over because all she really wants is to protect her sister and for good reasons. The fact that she started her own little romance in this story helped me like her a bit more too, lol.

There are Sirens (mermaid like) in this story which always wins me over as one of my favorite movies is The Little Mermaid. How Amanda Hocking went in detail as to how the three Sirens came to be gave you enough information to know that they were no good and why they needed and wanted from Gemma.

How book one ended left you with your mouth hanging open, but I guess that was exactly the point because now I'm anxious to read what happens next, I can't wait!
