From USA TODAY bestselling author Maureen A. Miller comes this young adult adventure that will plunge you deep into the Atlantic Ocean.
It was Stella Gullaksen’s final break before starting her freshman year at college. Joining her best friend, Jill, and Jill's family aboard the STARKISSED, Stella wakes to a violent storm that capsizes the boat over a hundred miles off the New Jersey shore.
As the waves haul her under Stella knows that she is going to die. Instead, an unusual current drags her deep into the underwater canyons of the Atlantic Ocean. Powerless against the raging waters, she is suddenly sucked into a ventilated cave. One by one, Jill and her family also emerge in the sunken cavern.
With only a faulty diving flashlight to keep oblivion at bay Stella and her best friend's brother, Colin, search the cave in hope of finding a way back to the surface. What they discover, however, is that they are not alone. There are other survivors in this subterranean grotto–survivors spanning decades of maritime disasters.
Will this discovery prove salvation, or have they all been condemned to the same fate? A grim finale at the bottom of the sea?
On an alliance forged by friendship and attraction, Stella and Colin battle to escape the danger that lies beneath.
This was a very enjoyable read. It was definitely original, the characters were well developed, and it had an energy of its own. If I could give more stars, I would, but, it is five stars (at least, in my book)!
This author is great. I’m reading this because of her “Beyond” series. In this book the main character and her family find themselves swept into an underwater cave about a mile below the surface. There seem to be secrets that aren’t quite revealed by the close of this book.
It’s fairly clean. I wish the author didn’t use so much profanity in her writings. At least it’s down of sexual content
Loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. I read until I realized I was done. Thanks for this great read.
