I hate spending time reading about the plot of a book on review sites - just tell me, Did you like it or not?

Above World

Above World (Above World #1)


368 pages
Published Feb. 14, 2012 by Candlewick Press

Finally a book with a new, fresh idea! Those are harder to come by in YA literature nowadays. Most books gravitate toward vampires or werewolves. Thanks for that, Stefanie.

This story revolves around a girl who is a "mermaid" who tries to save her people (a genetically-altered people who live in the sea, and "breathe" water with the aid of technology), because the technology is started to fail. She embarks on a journey "above world" - which is to say, air and land, to find allies.

I don't want to give too much away, though. It's a good read.
