Mara Lynn is the most beautiful girl in the world. James Parker is the ordinary boy who discovers her power.
Okay…I usually like to write a synopsis with my review but I’m feeling quite incompetent right now. Why is it that really awesome books always turn me into a bumbling idiot? I really enjoyed this book. It’s written as James’ memoir and he writes about the time that he met Mara, who is the siren in this book. I feel like James’ character was well written. He really sounds like a 12 year old and I find it refreshing. I notice too often with other books that characters’ voices don’t always match their age. The development of each character made me feel like I knew them. I like knowing more about the rest of the characters instead of just the main ones.
The story line was good. At first I thought it was a little drawn out, but I realized at the end that it was all necessary. This was more of a “young” romance novel. If you’re looking for steamy, this isn’t the book for you. I would have liked more of the paranormal aspect. There were some major turn of events at the end that I did not see coming…especially the last paragraph. Overall, it was a good read and I definitely recommend it. This is totally unrelated to my rating of the book but I couldn’t imagine Mara as a blonde. I kept picturing her as a raven haired beauty. I had to constantly yell at myself and say “hey, that’s not right.”
This face pretty much sums up my reaction LOL.
