GoodReads Summary:
She wanted her life to change... he wanted his to stay the same.
Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana's twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.

Ashlyn is about to discover what she'd thought to be true her whole life, wasn't, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn's life forever.

I've wanted to read this book since I first heard about it. I've always been a mermaid fan, from The Little Mermaid to Splash (which is mentioned in the book!). Even when I was a little girl, I would swirl my long red hair in the bathtub, pretending to be Ariel.

This was, believe it or not, my very first "mer" book. It was pretty good, but I wasn't entirely impressed with it. It seemed like it went really slow at some points and then it would speed up and go really fast. I liked the story and the characters, bit took me a long time to read Everblue. most of the time I was into it, but sometimes, it didn't hold my interest at all.

This book was kind of back and forth for me. I ended up pretty disappointed with it, overall.

Characters: Fin.
Rating: 3 Stars.
