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.
My Thoughts: Yay for mermaids! I guess it’s more like merpeople in this case. I love fantasy novels but it’s more of werewolves and vampires so it’s nice to have that change. It was refreshing. I am a twin myself and I believe that they portrayed twins very well. The storyline between Ashlyn and Fin is pretty amazing. Even though they are just teenager they have to make a choice that could change Fin’s life forever and he doesn’t have a long time to choose which. The characters were well developed, that was part of the reason I fell in love with it! I can admit that for this novel it was the cover that grabbed my attention and it didn’t not disappoint me like a few have in the past.
Overall, this is a fantastic read and I recommend it everyone! I cannot wait to read the next one.
