    Description

    Bethany C. Morrow's A Song Below Water is the story for today’s listeners - a captivating modern fantasy about black mermaids, friendship, and self-discovery set against the challenges of today's racism and sexism.

    In a society determined to keep her under lock and key, Tavia must hide her siren powers. Meanwhile, Effie is fighting her own family struggles, pitted against literal demons from her past. Together, these best friends must navigate through the perils of high school’s junior year.

    But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice at the worst possible moment.

    Soon, nothing in Portland, Oregon, seems safe. To save themselves from drowning, it’s only Tavia and Effie’s unbreakable sisterhood that proves to be the strongest magic of all.

    Commentaires

    “I love this book so, so much! Bethany C. Morrow delivers a blistering modern classic with this gorgeous tale of friendship and power. A Song Below Water somehow manages to be intensely happy and sad at the same time and all in the balance of great, riveting storytelling. The best YA novel I've read all year.” (Daniel José Older, New York Times best-selling author of Shadowshaper)

    “Morrow masterfully blends the real lives of Black girls in contemporary Portland with a mythic world of sirens, gargoyles, and other supernatural creatures to create a compelling coming-of-age story in which two sisters, bound by love and fate, find their voices and their power.” (Rebecca Roanhorse, Hugo, Nebula and John W. Campbell Award winner, author of Trail of Lightning)

    “Empowering and full of surprises, A Song Below Water reminds us how important it is to use our voices, even when we’re afraid. Morrow has created a world that’s both familiar and brimming with fantastical creatures, and the result is timely, necessary, and utterly captivating.” (Akemi Dawn Bowman, award-winning author of Starfish and Summer Bird Blue)

    Thank you.

    This book was just what I needed in these heartbreaking times. I’m 53, a former high school English and drama teacher, and a white suburban woman. Bethany’s voice - and the message she is sharing through Tavia and Effie - should be heard by all women and girls. The story made me necessarily and appropriately uncomfortable at times. I have gained perspective and am grateful for that. I love the characters and the creative way of conveying such an important, metaphorically rich- while being realistic - story. Thank you for sharing your voice. I will be exploring more of your writing, and wish you all the best.

    Not at all what I expected!

    Granted, I have a terrible habit of buying/borrowing books because of the cover being appealing and not bothering to read the synopsis - 🤷🏾‍♀️ sue me. But I definitely was not prepared for all of the mythical creatures in a story that also touches on the everyday struggles of a black girl. I LOVED it . . . And I kind of want a gargoyle now 😁🤷🏾‍♀️

    This story is so relevant!

    I highly suggest listening to this book! it is full of current events affecting black and brown people today! racism, sexism and add on supernatural speciesism. Only downfall is the next book doesn't come out until 6/21. I already pre-ordered it!

    Keeps You Hooked

    I enjoyed this book. Ren Fair, mythical creatures, mystery,social justice. It's got a litt le bit of something for everyone.
    3 stars for performance because the two different voices sounded so similar, so it was difficult to tell who was speaking sometimes.

    Absolutely wonderful

    This book made me feel seen as a Black girl but it handled the subject matter with such grace. It was all that is good about fiction and fantasy but made the story unapologetically Black and diverse. Love Love Love

    Black Mermaids? Yes!

    The plot gets a little slow/lost in the characters' reflection at times but it is an overall fun, smart, and necessary story. It's amazing as a black reader (and a mer hobbyist myself) to feel like my experiences are an inherent part of a fantasy narrative. Love the sisterhood between the main characters!

    Amazing mix of myth and current events!

    This an amazing and well written story! A fresh and inclusive take on myths combined with a new perspective if the role of women vs the true power we possess. The story I never knew I always needed. Thanks to Bethany C. Morrow for a story well crafted. Kudos to Andrea Lang and Jennifer Haralson for bringing the story to life.

    Great story Bad actor choice

    Amazing book, I love Black authors that write fantasy and magic, there's nothing like it. But Black voice actors would have made this MUCH better. The vernacular and certain terms aren't translated well with the chosen voices. Any Black girls that love mermaids like me should DEFINITELY read this book though.

    Real Life Parallels

    I was taken by the whimsy and wonder both Effie and Tavia. This mystery was definitely worth the wait. I wish there was something like a second novel.

    Magic, Friendship, Fight for Freedom

    A great story about friendship, magic and freedom to be. The beginning is a bit slow paced but then the plot picks up and gets very thrilling. The author combines magical fantasy elements with current political issues, such as racism and misogyny and the narrators do a great job in giving voice to two wonderful Black characters. Highly recommend
