[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads)

The people of Carrick have been whispering behind Neen’s back for most of her life; ever since her father drowned and her mother disappeared.

The townspeople say her mother was a merrow who has returned to her real home in the ocean. Neen wonders if perhaps the villagers are right. But if her mother is a merrow then what does this make Neen?

This pitiless summer all the talk will end in trouble.

All Neen wants is the truth

(Review)(DISCLAIMER:This is my opinion only, may contain spoilers for the book, may contain coarse language)

  • I didn’t give a rating as I didn’t finish the book, it would not be fair to give a rating if I didn’t finish
  • The entire book is just focused on Neen trying to find out what happened to her parents despite all the weird rumoured stories that the town has came up with
  • The story was slow and quite difficult to get through
  • I could not get past 6 chapters before i decided that the book was really boring
  • The characters lacked depth and well, ‘character’
  • The story lacked other subplots to keep the story interesting
