Gr 7–10—Gemma loves the water. She's on the swim team, and even when she's not swimming for sport, she's floating in Anthemusa Bay late at night, enjoying the peace, the quiet, and the magical feeling of the endless ocean. Her family doesn't understand. Her father lets her go-as long as she's home by curfew-but Harper, her overprotective older sister, worries way too much. Harper fears things like drowning and kidnappers, while what she should really worry about are the four beautiful girls who arrived in their small coastal town of Capri just before tourist season started. Teenagers begin to disappear in nearby towns. Harper should question why there are now only three of the unearthly beauties, and she should be terrified that they've taken an interest in Gemma. This first in a projected quartet is a paranormal romantic thriller based on mythological creatures-sirens. It's sure to capture readers' interest with its tightly woven plot, descriptive writing, and realistic characters. While not really a mystery, there are unknown elements that will keep readers guessing and riveted to every page right up to the end. Order extra copies of this novel, because it won't stay on your shelves long.Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL
