A Song Below Water

(A Song Below Water #1)

A Song below water should be on every reading list! I might be biased because it has sirens, but the storyline is just everything!


I am absolutely obsessed! This modern day setting filled with myths and legends was everything I wanted. Starting out slow, this amazing novel deals with topics like racism, social activism, found family and self acceptance.  With dual point of view narration this book gives you a mere glimpse of growing up in a world with discrimination and racism. And I was moved. Emotionally charged, compelling writing, fans of A very large expanse of sea by Tahereh Mafi will love this. Two powerful heriones, mythical beings, fantastic plot twists. This book has everything!

About this book:

Tavia is already at odds with the world, forced to keep her siren identity under wraps in a society that wants to keep her kind under lock and key. Nevermind she’s also stuck in Portland, Oregon, a city with only a handful of black folk and even fewer of those with magical powers. At least she has her bestie Effie by her side as they tackle high school drama, family secrets, and unrequited crushes.

But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation; the girls’ favorite Internet fashion icon reveals she’s also a siren, and the news rips through their community. Tensions escalate when Effie starts being haunted by demons from her past, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice during a police stop. No secret seems safe anymore—soon Portland won’t be either.
