I enjoyed reading this book and it was creatively written. Reading the different perspectives and hearing the story from different points of view was probably my favourite part of the writing. The plot of the story was interesting but maybe for a younger age group between 10 to 13 years old. I know I am not a professional writer but somethings that I wish could have been better was when the auther, Jackson was describing life underwater, I wish they would have made me feel like I was underwater to living with them, so I could understand what she was going through. The same goes with the triplets I would have loved to have more of a personality background on them. However, I did really enjoy the different perspectives. It was like rereading the book from another characters view, and seeing how they would react to all the events that occurred. This book was sort of relatable at the same time with the identity crisis between Nadia and Molly. I think there are a lot of people out there who are struggling with the same problem and this could be a good way to show those people that they are not alone and this book could be something that they turn to when they are having a crisis. There are a couple of messages I could take from this book. First, never forget who you truly are and never let other people change who you are. Second, always fight for the things that you believe in, even if people don’t have the same passion for it or don’t think of it the same way you do. Finally, family is always and forever, even if you fight with them they will always be there for you. I one hundred percent agree with all three of these messages, and overall thought this book was interesting. 3/5 stars

at the beginning, i find it a little sad when the boy died after hearing the melody from Celia after that it had a little romance

I don't know if it's just my feeling, but I found the story really boring. I do like the setting of the story, though.

The first few pages are i'll admit a little boring! It was a okay book. But I'll be honest. Not my favorite.

"I cry out in pain as I run back into the water, every step like knives twisting into my skin, pain that doesn't stop until I dive deep."
