Seventeen-year-old Emma Harris is drowning on dry land.
No one knows what’s happening to her, and she’d like to keep her evolution from human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide. From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from the irresistible James Phelps.
Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time on land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing in every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for James is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emma’s rescue and somehow manages to see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land she just can’t have.
When Emma’s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can prevent her return to the sea. Whether she likes it or not, Emma is changing—unable to breathe without yielding to the tide—and it’s only a matter of time before she’s forced to surrender forever.
Nichole Giles, the author of the Descendant trilogy, has lived in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Texas. She loves to spend time with her husband and four children, travel to tropical and exotic destinations, drive in the rain with the convertible top down, and play music at full volume so she can sing along.
My review: Water So Deep by Nichole Giles
This is a fantasy YA novel. It is a clean read. It is easy to follow and I was not ready for the story to end. I hope there will be a second story come out.
Emma Harris is in high school. She is hiding a big secret for the last few years. Only her grandmother knows it. Last year she had a horrible experience. This year she has kept more to herself.
Emma is turning into a mermaid. She needs to swim in the ocean and with every week she needs to spend more and more time in the water. Soon she will not be able to live on land anymore.
A merman has explained to Emma what is happening to her. He also tells her that she has been promised to him as his mate by the King of Atlantis.
James Phelps is a new kid in town. He hopes to be able to join the basketball team. He has his own drama with his life. He likes Emma but she keeps telling him no she does not want to date him.
This has a lot of teenage drama let alone the fantasy drama. It deals with depression, teen abuse, and special needs students. I think she should have let her parents know a lot sooner. Especially what her adoptive father is researching.
I enjoyed reading this story. I want more of this story.
I was given this book to read and in return agreed to give a honest review and be part of Water So Deep blog tour.
