Overview

The psychological labyrinth of a young woman’s insidious connection to the sea, from the Edgar Award nominated author of Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone.
 
After nine years spent suffocating in the arid expanse of the Midwest, far from the sea where her mother drowned, Callie Morgan and her father are returning to the coast. And miraculously, Callie can finally breathe easily. No more sudden, clawing attacks and weeklong hospital stays. But something is calling to her from the river behind their house and from the ocean miles away. Just as her life begins to feel like her own, and the potential for romance is blossoming, the intoxicating pull of the dark water seeps into her mind, filling her with doubt and revealing family secrets. Is it madness, or is there a voice, beckoning her to come to the sea? To answer the call of the dark waves. To come home. 

Praise

*”Rosenfield’s paragraphs are so suffused with the pull of the tide that it becomes a full-body throb, drawing Callie down, down, down to exactly where you think she’s heading: the deep. The delicious confusion between fantasy and madness
finds perfect expression in Rosenfield’s hypnotic prose and upside-down chapter construction.”  —Booklist, starred review

“At its best in the sensory details that create its vaguely sinister atmosphere.”–Kirkus Reviews

This often eerie novel that toes the line of fantasy is a delight. Readers won’t be sure just what it is that has consumed Callie—her own madness, or perhaps, something altogether inhuman—but they’ll keep turning pages in hopes of finding out. For fans of E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars.” -School Library Journal
