Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love – again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.
Then Lexi finds herself torn. Against her better judgement, she’s opening up again, falling in love with someone new when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.
Ripple was an enjoyable book that kept me guessing until the end and surprised me with some plot twists.
Ripple is the type of book that makes you think, “oh wow” or “I didn’t expect that to happen”. The surprises were all very exciting and add so much more depth to the story.
One thing that I liked about this novel is that when the story started, it just got right into the good stuff without it making it seem rushed.
