The sea isn't safe. Only the bravest and strongest become sailors. Luminescent mermaids roam the depths and the shallows, mouthing words no one can hear, never surfacing. 

Raised all his life in an island fishing village, bookish Emerson Kadwell has always been warned away from the shore. But an infant memory of a song and the lapping of waves continually draw him.

When Emerson finds a mermaid stranded in an isolated part of the shoreline, the truth about his past and hers will change his world forever. 

A luminescent mermaid. A bookish inventor. A terrible truth. 
Shallows is a clean YA fantasy novel with elements of paranormal and romance. It is the first in a series.

Usually I'm not partial to starting off books with a dream and waking up from it, but there was something so rhythmic and beautiful about this one. I'm intrigued already!

Okay, so, I have a belief that all the best books start with... a map.

I think it's a really cool idea. Bioluminescence is fairly common in marine life, so it makes sense that mermaids might exhibit it. I wonder if they use it to attract prey, communicate, or do something else entirely.
