Surfacing (Swans Landing), by Shana Norris

"Departing from the childhood dream of every girl to be a mermaid, Shana Norris takes a more realistic approach of what it would mean to be a young adult growing up not knowing about her mermaid heritage until life forced her to confront it. Set in modern times with timeless issues that always relate, such as bullying, romantic relationships, and coming of age, Norris puts a new look on the old fairy tale question of what world would a girl choose to live in if she found out she was a mermaid and what could happen if she discovered if she could live in both. Intertwining delightful characters, an amazing setting, and descriptive details, Norris' fish tale is one hard to put down and leaves you wondering where the next adventure will lead." -- Amazon reviewer

Sixteen-year-old Mara Westray has just lost her mother, and now, being shipped off to live with the father she doesn't know is not how she imagined grieving. She's already counting down the days until she turns eighteen and can leave the tiny island of Swans Landing.

But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. Whispers of a haunting song on the wind make her see impossible things, and she isn't sure she can trust her judgment about what is real and what isn't anymore. Maybe she can't even trust her judgment about quiet Josh Canavan, whose way of speaking in riddles and half-truths only confuses her more, luring her deeper into the secrets hidden beneath the ocean's surface.

As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island sixteen years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning.

SURFACING is an approximately 78,000 word/314 page young adult paranormal romance, and is the first book in the Swans Landing series.
