"Brooks rich prose reverberates with vivid, cinematic images. The author succeeds in conveying the fully fleshed-out characters' anguish and conflict. This marvelous offering brings to mind Alice Hoffman's Indigo and Karen Hesse's The Music of Dolphins. It's not to be missed."
— School Library Journal
"Brooks' coming of age story is full of secrets, teenage angst, fierce longing to belong, dramatic rescues, revenge, and true love. Her tone mimics traditional lore: appropriately dark, moody, and satisfyingly old fashioned." — Booklist
"The legend of the selkies is densely imagined and fully embodied in this lyrical narrative... The prose has a Celtic lilt that adds dimension and authenticity. This will have strong appeal for readers who enjoy metamorphic fantasies as well as Celtic mythology." — The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Compelling, compassionate characters and creatively detailed descriptions of the terrain above and below the surface of the sea." — Kirkus Reviews
