The Sea in You

The Sea in You is a whimsical, dark fantasy retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid that will upend everything you thought you knew about magical creatures of the deep, and take you on a whirlwind journey to a whole new world you’ve only dreamed of before!


15-year-old Corinth was just trying to clean up the beach; she never expected to meet a mermaid, let alone be nearly drowned by one. But a storm is brewing—both at sea, and in Corinth's increasingly dangerous relationship with her obsessively jealous boyfriend—and a magical bargain may be the only thing that can save her . . . at a tremendous cost.

After Skylla, the deadly fanged mermaid, mysteriously lets Corinth live, they grow closer through a cautious exchange of stories, gifts, jokes, and sign language. Bewitched by Corinth and their growing bond, Skylla learns about all the best things in life on land: books, burgers, donuts . . . and this strange, chattering human sound called laughter.
