Morgan didn’t mean to do anything wrong that day. Actually, she meant to do something right. But her kind act inadvertently played a role in a deadly tragedy. In order to move on, Morgan must learn to forgive—first someone who did something that might be unforgivable, and then, herself.
But Morgan can’t move on. She can’t even move beyond the front door of the apartment she shares with her mother and little brother. Morgan feels like she’s underwater, unable to surface. Unable to see her friends. Unable to go to school.
When it seems Morgan can’t hold her breath any longer, a new boy moves in next door. Evan reminds her of the salty ocean air and the rush she used to get from swimming. He might be just what she needs to help her reconnect with the world outside.
Underwater is a powerful, hopeful debut novel about redemption, recovery, and finding the strength it takes to face your past and move on.
Okay, this might be cheating a little bit, but I already read this one via an ARC from Netgalley.
THAT SAID, I can’t wait to have a finished copy because it is AMAZING. I’m sometimes iffy on if I want a hard copy or ebook, but I absolutely am going to want this one in some format so that I can do a reread! So…look it up. It comes out on January 12 and will be more than worth your time and money. SO GOOD.
A full review will come closer to release, but…man, I’m so ready for this one to come out!
