Undertow by Michael Buckley
This is an interesting YA paranormal dystopianish romance. It has been 3 years since the Alpha, a varied group of undersea dwelling peoples have come ashore on Coney Island. Fourteen year old Lyric Walker has learned, when they came ashore, that her mom is one of them. Now, they are being integrated into her high school and she has been assigned to make friends with the prince. No one knows what her mother is, and it is best to keep things that way. There is mystery and intrigue in this novel. I felt that some things were not explained well, but there are two other books to come so perhaps they will be explained better in future novels.
