If you are familiar with the band called “clipping,” then you may recognize some of the authors’ names, as well as the title of this book. The Deep is a novella based on a song of the same name and performed by Diggs, Hutson, and Snipes. It is a story about sea-dwelling creatures who are descendents of the pregnant African woman thrown overboard by slavers during the slave trade. It isn’t just a story about “mermaids;” it is a story about memory, history, and survival. This short novel will resonate with you long after you’ve finished it. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
