Review of EverBlue

She wanted her life to change... he wanted his to stay the same.
Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana's twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.
Ashlyn is about to discover what she'd thought to be true her whole life, wasn't, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn's life forever.

This book just hit the jackpot! One it is totally underwater themed... hence the title, It consists of an awesome female lead, and there is a hot merman ;) ! Such a bonus...but that comes later ;)

So first off, i love how the story changes from points of view! From Ash's view to Fin's.... Brenda Pandos was able accomplish the points of view perfectly! Usually when authors use point of view, one character has less emotion than the other (maybe that's just me) but while reading Everblue I felt every tid bit of emotion going through each characters brain. I got so into the book, i started reading it during my Calculus class...and let me tell you I usually don't ever try to read during that class.

The characters were really well developed, and there was enough detail...it was just right :). With every word I fell in love with Fin more, and with each page I felt Ash's confusion and pain. But those are the two main characters who are amazing, there is also Fin's sister, who i must say is freaking Kick-Butt awesome ( me using my teenage terms again ;D), and the evil Merman, who have quite a sense of humor. So just reading about these character's made them feel so real ( maybe it's also the fact the book takes place in the California...so that might make it more relatable for me).

You will have an amazing time reading Everblue: it's funny, romantic, and has the paranormal going on! It's a fun read.....BUT WAIT! WHAT ABOUT FIN!?!?!

Well Fin...he is just too sweet. The way he just cares for his family, and then the way he treats Ash, and feels bad when is a douche-bag...it's to cute! He is pretty much your boy next door. He is the blond haired blues hottie who you just can't stop yourself from falling for him. All i have to say is ...you must read to get the full description, he is so adorable and just wow !!!!

Everblue must get a 5/5 it was fantabulous and amazing ! It was an extremely quick read, which you engage in once you begin reading ! Everyone get yourself a copy asap, and tell me what you think of it, I would love to hear your opinions...till then
