Overview

Waterville, Maine is exactly where Alana Cassidy never expected to end up. Just across the river from Winslow, the town she grew up in, it is where she is now forced to call home. Placed in a horrible foster home, with equally horrible foster parents, the death of her mother and father five years ago was only the beginning of the nightmare her life has become. All she wanted was out of the life she hadn’t wanted, and the opportunity just presented itself, sooner than the eighteenth birthday she’d been looking forward to.
Jonas of Altonia: former guard of the King’s court, banned from his home, injured and dying he waited out his fate, hidden under a forgotten dock deep in the woods behind the Pernickle’s farm. He hadn’t wanted to be saved, but she’d heard his song, planting a seed that took root the second she dragged him free of what would have been a fresh water grave. He’d expected her to be frightened by his kind…it was in all the stories. It was forbidden for Merman to show themselves to human kind, and yet, she hadn’t tried to kill him. It hadn’t been his intention to take her from her world, back into his, but she had nothing to lose, and he had everything to gain. Smitten by his essence, and desperate to get away from it all, Alana can’t see past the ocean’s call within his eyes. She needs a way out, and he just might be it.

    Good read for teens or young adults.

    I really liked "Smitten". It is well written with just a few errors and none that were distracting. I liked the characters, even if they seem a little naive. I'd like to ask the author why Lana didn't read "the letter" immediately after spending the night looking for "clues" with Roman. Just a few little things like that that made me go hmmmm. I think this is a really good book for a teenage girl and it did leave me wondering what will happen to Lana, Roman, and Jonas. This is a very good book for free and if you like teen, YA paranormal.. give it a try! I would've given this a 3.5 if BN would let me.

    Alright

    A good story. Not too captivating, and a rough ending, but still good overall.

    ok...

    Over half the book had nothing to do with what the synopis said. You almost read the whole bok before the merman appears and then the way it ends is very abrupt, so if you end up liking the book you really have no choice but to go buy the next one in the series just to know what what is going on since the book ends so abruptly, it's like getting a door slamed in your face before you get a chance to peak in a room.
