Since her twin brother, Eddie, drowned five years ago, sixteen-year-old Elsie Main has tried to remember what really happened that fateful day on the beach. One minute Eddie was there, and the next he was gone. Seventeen-year-old Tay McKenzie is a cute and mysterious boy that Elsie meets in her favorite boathouse hangout. When Tay introduces Elsie to the world of freediving, she vows to find the answers she seeks at the bottom of the sea.

sorry just saw this.. wow! good job on finishing it.. I'm currently @ chapter 11 .. I find it a bit like The Lovely Bones


Melek (chaissar) I haven't read it, but looking at the blurb, they do sound a little too similar. I'm considering reading that one too, though 3.75/5 doesn't sound very good.


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments ratings isn't an indication of anything .. give it a shot! you might like it.. Personally, I liked it better than the movie..

so, how was this??? .. I see you've given it 4 stars


Melek (chaissar) I liked it very much, more than I thought I would to be honest. I felt captivated to read more and more and I couldn't stop until I finished it. I thought the writing needs a little more polishing, because the characters just don't seem to be feeling anything, just are said to be feeling bad, but the rest was all right. I liked Dillon and the father the most.

that's promising.. I'm actually intrigued (view spoiler) it's what makes me want to continue.. besides the mystery of it all ofc..


Melek (chaissar) I liked her attitude towards it that, though I thought it was more about her guilt. I'm still not sure if I liked her or not in general, but I like her with him.


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments Part 2, chapter 12 (view spoiler)

Melek (chaissar) I agree. No one is even trying to hide that they know something, they just don't bother telling her! It's irritating.

Karen Barber | 10608 comments Just realised that this is a buddy read, and it's on my TBR pile...hoping it's not too similar to We Were Liars.


Karen Barber | 10608 comments Chapters 1-5. Immediately sucked in. Curious to know what she means about Eddie still being around.


Karen Barber | 10608 comments Read to ch12. Free diving...not what I expected, but am guessing at romance with Tay.


Karen Barber | 10608 comments Finished part 2. Can only imagine what awful things Elsie's family are hiding!


Karen Barber | 10608 comments Part 3 - the family are imploding. This is messy, and I think it's about to get a whole lot worse.


Karen Barber | 10608 comments Raw. Enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would at the start.
