The Accidental Siren #BookReview + #Giveaway

The Accidental Siren

Mara Lynn is the most beautiful girl in the world. James Parker is the ordinary boy who discovers her power. The year is 1994. James, a pudgy twelve-year-old, responds to an ad for a used camcorder at a mysterious suburban home. Before he can knock on the door, he notices boys–a dozen at least–frozen amongst the trees behind the house. Their faces are blank. One boy presses “record” on a walkman and holds it above his head… and then James hears it, the voice of a little girl. Sweet; high like a songbird without the shrill. It was a church song. It came from inside the house. James doesn’t know it yet, but the girl he’s about to meet is a modern-day siren. The Accidental Siren depicts the joys and consequences of young love as Mara and James meet, shoot a movie, fend off bullies, and explore the potential of infinite beauty.

My thoughts: This was one interesting book! The book was told by James Parker as he wrote a book about the summer he was 12 years old. James was an inspiring filmmaker and was making a film over the summer to enter in a art festival. The readers are introduced to James' family and friends in a way that makes you feel like you are there. We are also introduced to Mara, a beautiful girl who has a special gift almost like putting everyone that meets her under a spell. Mara has lived a secret life that gets unfolded by James when he visits a house to by a camera. The book continues to have many twists that keep you turning the page to find out what will happen next. First loves, fighting off bullies and making a movie, all things that James experiences at twelve and has changed his life forever.
