The third Watersong installment picks up right where we were left hanging. Hocking’s latest has a faster pace, making for a more intriguing read, with more action on every page and more romance between Gemma and Alex. The Little Mermaid for teens, Tidal is a thrill ride.

Gemma is no longer the siren of choice, meaning her life is in danger. Penn and Lexi will stop at nothing to make sure Gemma is dead, before it’s too late for them. Gemma must break the curse and save not only herself but her family and friends — and Alex, the guy she loves. (ST. MARTIN’S GRIFFIN, Jun., 352 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9781250008114, HC, 12 & Up)
