Today is my stop for Fish Out of Water Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours and below are my thoughts about it.
Thanks to RBT and Young Actors Project for the chance to read this and for the provided copy.
YA Contemporary Romance
SYNOPSIS: Be who you were born to be …
Marina Andersen’s structured life is ruled by the Three S’s: Swim. Study. Succeed. But all this routine and order leaves little time for what she really wants to do: SING. Try telling that to her overbearing father, a former rock legend whose personal demons keep Marina’s extraordinary musical talents behind closed doors.
After a chance performance at school drops a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—and a gorgeous young rocker—at Marina’s feet, she’ll have to decide what lengths she’s willing to go to in pursuit of the one thing that reminds her heart to beat.
While navigating the rough seas of managing her father’s expectations and finding her own voice, will Marina summon the courage to show her dad who she really is inside before their family is dashed like a galleon in a storm?

From the very first chapter of this book, I find it really cute and funny. Though, the middle part goes bad and blue. Still, this is a wonderful book inspired by ‘A Little Mermaid’ story which isn’t true retelling (the characters and such) yet resemble how the original fairytale has been. You’ll be going to notice some reenactment once you read this book. The counterpart of Ursula and the stolen voice (for the sake of not spoiling, ‘stolen voice’ here is not literally stolen but close enough to say).
I did not feel I’m actually reading it instead the sensation is kind of watching the book as a movie. Interesting and definitely worth the read. It is easy to follow on how the story goes and you are engaged the moment you begin.
The end is satisfyingly good despite what things happened and well, I love that it works like that. A happy ending just like a classic fairytale.
I look forward to reading more stories like this style and form with sort of fairytale reincarnation in the modern days. Anyway, I hope you find this also interesting and check it out.
