Review:: Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown

Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Pages: 303
Format: Kindle

A special Thank you to Delacorte and NetGalley for sending this book to review.

Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.

Morgan's Review {age 14}:

I like Lies Beneath but,I mostly like it because I love the scary mermaid sisters. The storyline is awesome and I love how it's written. It's just that my mind is a bit juvenile for this and I must admit that I skipped a few romantic paragraphs. My sister grace can read them seriously but ,I get all embarrassed and blush when its from the boys point of view. Girls point of view no problem boys view ,boom I am hiding my head beneath a pillow from embarrassment .I know its silly but I can’t help it. So I hope you all enjoy it because it is awesome so read it.


  1. Excellent review Morgan and I completely understand about the boy's point of view. I liked the scary mermaid sisters too. I really liked Lily -she wasn't afraid to be herself. Thanks for sharing your review!

  2. Great review Morgan!!

    I totally get blushing when it's from a boys point of view, sometimes that's just too far out of our comfort zone!! But I'm glad to hear it was a great book, I haven't really read any Mermaid books. Maybe I'll start with this one :)
