Surfacing - Book One in the Swans Landing Series

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 currently available in ebook format from,, iTunes, Smashwords, and other ebook retailers. Available in audiobook from Audible, and in print at Amazon.

I like how you don't throw piece of information at us all in a blur so we can't keep up. Its good I like it so far :)
I wonder if her fathers absence had anything to do with her mother being angry@ him 12yrs ago? maybe her Mom kept him from contact? ?
she sounds mad@her mom in a way.  like it's her mom's fault she died & now Mara had to go thru a life change
really? a 4 yr old on a bus lol she didn't c her dad after that... . until now yrs later duhhh commen sense.
What does the discription have to do with the name and the cover? Is she like a mermaid or something like um what.
even tho he left her she should at least give him a change she does not know the story about What happened
