  • Coral was nothing like expected, but very good!

    4.5 stars I'm not 100% sure what to say. Coral was nothing like expected, but everything I needed. It ripped off the "blinders" concerning mental health in a way where these characters are not just characters on the page. They are reflections of real people, real stories. It made me realize that it can be so easy due to social media to feel "involved" in others' lives, but also make us feel like a mermaid out of water. That so many of us struggle with or know someone personally who struggles with anxiety, depression, and/or feels suicidal and "mask" it in different ways. Because of that, this feels like one of the hardest books I've read. Coral is an extremely relatable character even if I have never been in her fins. Add Brooke's and Merrick's story and my heart aches, but it heals to see their story. That our, the readers, story doesn't have to end in pain. It can heal. It can love. I am mind blown how the author was able to take a "hidden topic" in society today and present this beautiful, heart-breaking story. Again, Coral was nothing like expected, but everything I needed. Recommended to readers who want a story that shows they are not alone and those who need to read a story of healing. *(I received an ARC from the publisher. All thoughts expressed are my own and was not required to write a positive review.)*

  • No Eric or Ariel Here

    While I appreciate what Sara Ella is trying to do with Coral it just didn’t work for me. Unfortunately the twists that might make a book like this work feel flat or are just confusing. The focus of the story is not related to mermaids at all. It’s really about depression and suicide (and not really in a new way or one that resonated with me); that one of our gals starts as a mermaid is generally irrelevant. The love story is okay, but features frustrating moments and is very teen angsty. I struggle to find any comparisons to The Little Mermaid besides the obvious. There is subtlety I expect from retellings of famous stories and Ella just misses the mark entirely. This might work for some teens in certain mindsets but for this adult reviewer I just didn’t feel into it at all. Please note: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. This is an honest and unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
