Book Review

Pearl (that name is so appropriate for a deep sea dweller) is a teenager who has had a miserable life so far. Her ability to breathe underwater had made her into a freak to be exhibited by her adoptive parents who are part of a circus. When she finally manages to run away she's determined to keep that fact from everyone around her so no one ever gets to take advantage of her again. Then a boy falls into the water at the amusement park and she jumps in to save him.

Chase is the nephew of the amusement park owner. He notices that Pearl was down in the water way longer than humanly possible. He befriends her to learn her secret. He is an investigative journalist and he has his life all planned out. A scoop like this could make his reputation.

When Pearl learns of his treachery she decides to swim away. In the ocean she makes new friends, learns of a whole new world and is surprised to hear of a whole war going on underwater. She needs to decide if she really wants to be a part of the power struggle in the ocean, or return to the shore and try to piece her life together.

Emotional drama over Pearl's life was heart breaking. Just how much more does a teenage girl have to bear? Lot of intrigue, and hints of things to come. Looking forward to the next book in the series to see just how Pearl matures. The book had well developed primary characters, an interesting plot, and a hook to keep you wanting to come back for more!
