My new favorite Ockler novel, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids centers on Elyse d'Abreau's personal tragedy: the loss of her voice— and her promising singing career— in a boating accident. The sea is a part of who Elyse is, and she feels like it has betrayed her; the same goes for her twin sister, Natalie. The mystery surrounding Elyse and Natalie's rift will keep readers intrigued until the very end, but the most gripping aspect of this novel is the lyrical, poetic writing that raises the bar for Ockler's future work and YA in general. An important story about silenced voices finding a way to make themselves heard. ~ Reviewed by Paige Mushaw
