She wanted her life to change… he wanted his to stay the same.Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana’s twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.
Ashlyn is about to discover what she’d thought to be true her whole life, wasn’t, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn’s life forever.
Mermaid books are not books I ever read but in the last couple of weeks this is the second one I’ve finished.(See Monstrous Beauty in a previous post)
This is a very fast read and a bit or should I say a lot far-fetched (but what books about Mermaids aren’t?) and it deals with teenage feelings of love, the strong bond of family and has plenty of action. It was good enough for me to read the next in the Mer Tales series, which I will report on at a later date.
Though strange it is a very good read.
