This is an entertaining underwater tale about a young mermaid and her quest to save her kingdom from destruction. The buildup was pretty slow, and not much seemed to happen in the story other than historical explanations and lots of swimming away from the bad guys. It ended rather abruptly, but it's the first in a series of four books. That being said, I really liked the book. It was well written with a unique setting. While the story didn't bring anything new to the table (it was your typical coming of age story) it was engaging. I enjoyed reading it and especially liked the way it was light on the romance. It was pretty clean, with only a few instances of violence. It's clean enough to be enjoyed by all YA readers, not just the older ones. I would recommend this book to someone looking for a story about sisterhood, friendship, and self-discovery. Content: Some violence and made up curse words, but I consider this a clean book. Source: I received an ARC of this book from the Cuddlebuggery blogger review program in exchange for an honest review.

Jennifer Donnelly's DEEP BLUE is a totally cool book -- just like the Harry Potter books, full of magic, adventure and a true coming of age story of 6 courageous mairmaids. The whole family can enjoy this book, just like the Harry Potter books, it is for young and old alike. Have fun starting this great saga from Disney and Jennifer Donnelly.

I overall enjoyed this book. The words at first were difficult seeing as you pretty much just jumped into a language you didn't know but once you get over that the story was really entertaining.

This book took forever for anything to happen. It's about a whole lot of derivative nothing.

This incredible tale gives a new light on mermaids, one that leaves us all with a new knowledge and understanding that mermaids are a lot like us, but different in many ways. Jennifer Donnelly does a fantastic job of intriguing her readers to continue reading and have a desire to never stop. Serafina, a principessa of Miromara, has to face many challenges including being orphaned, having to cross the entire sea, and suffering loss and deception everywhere she goes. Luckily, she has her best friend Neela right beside her. Together they have to figure out a mystery that has been haunting their dreams along with four others. They have to go to the Iele to have it all explained. While on the way there, they have to overcome obstacles and terrifying secrets are finally revealed. I absolutely loved this book!! I have always been excited at the prospect of mermaids and I read them whenever I can but this book has been the turning point of my mermaid love. If you love mermaid fantasy, then you will love his book. Check it out if you love mermaid fiction as much as I do.
