Booktalk #1

Even though it has been 80 years, Kahlen still has trouble living the life of a siren.  She loves the ocean and her sister sirens, but she just can't stand their mission.  They sing and cause disasters at sea.  Each time the ocean tells them to sing, Kahlen dreads their mission.  In between singings, they live very nice lives. The only stipulation is that they can't talk to humans.  Their voices cause humans to drown so they live lives as mutes.  And they have no human friends.  When Kahlen meets a wonderful young man, she knows she can't be involved with him. But there is just something about him that keeps her coming back.

Booktalk #2

Forced to work as a Siren and lure strangers to their deaths after being rescued from drowning by the Ocean, Kahlen falls in love with a human and defies the rules of her service in order to follow her heart. (New Hampshire Isinglass Read Award 2017-2018)
