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.
    A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Teen
    "An enthralling tale of black girl magic and searing social commentary ready to rattle the bones." — Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Belles

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrators Jennifer Haralson and Andrea Lang deliver a contemporary fantasy with a focus on social justice. Tavia, a siren whose magical power to control others must be kept secret, is portrayed with gentle vulnerability by Haralson. Effie, depicted warmly by Lang, is afflicted with a strange skin condition and has no clues about her heritage. These best friends navigate high school drama, crushes, and the secrets their families keep from them. Chapters alternate first-person perspectives, and a leisurely pace gradually intensifies as a suspected siren's murder trial unfolds. In a parallel plot, Tavia unleashes her voice during a police stop. While some conversations between characters don't offer enough character differentiation, overall, this is an exciting listen.
