Wrecked by Anna Davies

A mysterious stranger holds the key to Miranda’s fate in this contemporary retelling of “The Little Mermaid.”

Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.
But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm. Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.


This was literally the worst book I have read in my life! I can't believe that Simon and Schuster published this thing. I could not make it to the end, I had to stop in page 169 because this was so painful to read. I can't really find words to describe how awful this book is. I am so glad I got this book for free because it would have been a waste of money. Miranda was so pathetic, constantly complaining about how her life was so bad. I would give this book -5 (negative 5) stars, but sadly I can't!

Save your money, get it from your library. If you like it, then you can spend money on it!

1/5 stars.
