Siren (Siren #1) by Tricia Rayburn

Book Description: Seventeen-year-old Vanessa Sands is afraid of everything--the dark, heights, the ocean--but her fearless older sister, Justine, has always been there to coach her through every challenge. That is until Justine goes cliff diving one night near the family's vacation house in Winter Harbor, Maine, and her lifeless body washes up on shore the next day. Vanessa's parents want to work through the tragedy by returning to their everyday lives back in Boston, but Vanessa can't help feeling that her sister's death was more than an accident. After discovering that Justine never applied to colleges, and that she was secretly in a relationship with longtime family friend Caleb Carmichael, Vanessa returns to Winter Harbor to seek some answers. But when Vanessa learns that Caleb has been missing since Justine's death, she and Caleb's older brother, Simon, join forces to try to find him, and in the process, their childhood friendship blossoms into something more. Soon it's not just Vanessa who is afraid. All of Winter Harbor is abuzz with anxiety when another body washes ashore, and panic sets in when the small town becomes home to a string of fatal, water-related accidents . . . in which all the victims are found grinning from ear to ear. As Vanessa and Simon probe further into the connections between Justine's death and the sudden rash of creepy drownings, Vanessa uncovers a secret that threatens her new romance, and that will change her life forever. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Review: This book wasn't the best book in the world but i did have a fun time reading it. What made it good was there were some twists in the plot, the characters were amazing, and the author wrote this book at the write pace. I love the romance story mixed in with the mermaid story. Awesome Blossom. The story is basically about finding out what happened to Vanessas older sister Justine. Vanessa and childhood friend Simon embark on an adventure to find the truth and maby on the way, Caleb. The story gets so more deep as Vanessa tries to save Simon and Caleb from a delusional psychopath who is killing people. The story starts out with Vanessa just digging into her sisters death and ends with her trying to figure out her relationship with Simon and her Life as a #####. Over all it was a good YA book. Loved it, would defiantly recommend to other Book Addicts like me
