“No good calls ever came at two o’clock in the morning. Only ones that wipe out any hope of having a normal day. On this particular morning, it wiped out hope of anything ever being “normal” again.”
Cry of the Sea is the story of young activist Juniper Sawfeather. When she and her father rush to the beach after a reported oil spill to document the damage, June discovers three humans washed up on the beach, struggling to breathe through the oil coating their skin. At first she thinks they must be surfers, but as she gets closer, she realizes these aren’t human at all.
Cry of the Sea takes a look at mermaids from a brand new perspective, retelling the classic fairy tale with a fresh new twist. A great story for readers of all ages, I think this one will resonate especially strongly with its intended young adult audience.
