Nothing against this book personally, I just thought that the writing was a little clunky and the way the world building was set up sort of made this feel like a cheesy Disney-direct-to-TV movie. (I think there's actually a YA movie called Sirens that reminded me a little of this book, although this one was way more creative.) I appreciate the allegory of mermaids for misogynoir and the media witch hunts launched against Black people by the news, but this wasn't it for me.
2 out of 5 stars
