    I received this book from the author to give an honest review.


    I received this book from the author to give an honest review.


    Waterdancer felt like a fairytale story. It flowed together nicely, but I still had some questions through out. It was a tad bit too short, but maybe there is another book in the works? I can only hope on that part.

    Bailey an average teen moves to a new place with her mom, step-dad and her little brother. She ends up meeting a guy named Jack and they hit it off. Before Bailey's sixteen birthday she gets hit with some news that she never saw coming. Her father who left her and mom a long time ago comes back into the picture.

    I had questions as to how this "curse" came to be. Or at least more explanation to it.


    The love that Bailey had for her little brother was so sweet! It is how we all wish are children could be with each other.

    I would so recommend this book for all YA readers. It is a really clean book that will have you in giggles with some parts. By clean I mean no cussing, no sexual intentions written within the book.


    One of my favorite parts was : I paddled furiously, but for some reason my legs wouldn't listen to the command to paddle. Were they still there? Awesome. If they were bitten off, then I was spilling blood all over the ocean, and now I would be nothing more than shark chow with GPS attached.


    If you want a quick read, something that will have you going awwwww towards the end. Then pick up your copy of this book.
