Goodreads Description:

One minute Meara Quinn is making plans for the summer before her senior year. The next she finds out that her mother's cancer has returned and they're moving away from the only home she's ever known. Every day becomes a struggle as Meara tries to cope with her mother's illness while being forced to move to another country to live with grandparents who are strangers. 

Add weird visions of a father who was absent her entire life and top it all off with one whopping secret that everyone seems bent on keeping from her, and Meara has the perfect ingredients for a major melt down. The only things keeping her from coming unglued are some new friends and Evan—the son of her mother's childhood friend—who seems to know Meara almost better than she knows herself. 

Together with Evan and her friends, Meara embarks on a new journey to unlock the secrets that will not only tell Meara who she is, but what she is.


Kelly Risser has writen one of my favorite sea creature books. I adored Never Forgotten. I love how she weaves the folklore in with real life issues. If you are looking for a magical selkie novel then this a must read and a book to add to your shelf.

At the time I read this book my grandmother-in-law was going through kemo and had cancer. The portrayal of cancer in this book was spot on. This is a must read and I can not wait to continue the series.

About the Author:

Becoming a published author is a lifetime dream come true. As a child, I subjected friends and family to my "KellyMark" greeting cards ("When you care enough to make the very best."), poetry, homemade magazines, and short stories. In high school, my short story, "If Only to Escape" was published in the local paper, and I won a writing contest for my children's story, "Televisella." In college, my creative writing tapered off, but I still managed to write the occasional review for The Marquette University Tribune. Once I graduated, I mixed creative writing with business writing, and I've held positions in Advertising, Marketing, and Instructional Design/eLearning Development.

Today, I am busy writing my next book. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, creating swag for my books (I love crafting!), hanging out with my husband and two kids, or playing with our Whoodle.
