Wrecked by Anna Davies
“Well, that’s where our miscommunication lies. Because it wasn’t all right that you saved her. I wanted her soul. I wanted all their souls. But I’m letting you off easy,” ~ Sephie (The Sea Witch)
In a nut shell, this is a modern retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid in reverse!
I, of course loved it!
Miranda and her little brother move to Whym Island after the tragic death of their parents. They move in with their grandmother who because of her status in society the two kids have no problems fitting in. That is until tragedy strikes this small town again, but this time at the hands of Miranda.
Miranda and her friends are sailing when a fire destroys her boat and takes the lives of several of her friends. Miranda is saved from the water by a mysterious boy. Sound familiar? Yes, it gets better!
Her guilt consumes her and she is ostracized from her friends at school, she takes to the sea for solitude. Here she meets the mysterious Christian.
Tragic and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.
