Siren’s Storm

By: Lisa Papademetriou

BOOK TALK

 

Will’s brother, Tim, has been missing since the previous summer from a mysterious boating accident.  His disappearance and other unexplained deaths in a wealthy seaside town on Long Island have long-time friends Will and Gretchen suspicious of a new girl in town.  Will has witnessed Asia performing superhuman feats and her voice seems to lull listeners into a trance. Asia’s ethereal beauty and strange powers have many wondering where she came from.  Adding to the eerie atmosphere is Gretchen’s strange sleepwalking habits which lead both teenagers to close encounters with death.  Do any of the recent events have a connection to Tim’s disappearance? Siren’s Storm is a haunting blend of mystery and mythology, despite its contemporary setting and will keep the reader wondering what is real and what isn’t.
