"I love this book so, so much! Bethany C. Morrow delivers a blistering modern classic with this gorgeous tale of friendship and power. A Song Below Water somehow manages to be intensely happy and sad at the same time and all in the balance of great, riveting storytelling. The best YA novel I've read all year." -- Daniel JosΓ© Older, New York Times bestselling author of Shadowshaper

"Morrow masterfully blends the real lives of Black girls in contemporary Portland with a mythic world of sirens, gargoyles and other supernatural creatures to create a compelling coming-of-age story in which two sisters, bound by love and fate, find their voices and their power." --Rebecca Roanhorse, Hugo, Nebula and John W. Campbell Award Winner, author of Trail of Lightning

"Empowering and full of surprises, A Song Below Water reminds us how important it is to use our voices, even when we're afraid. Morrow has created a world that's both familiar and brimming with fantastical creatures, and the result is timely, necessary, and utterly captivating." --Akemi Dawn Bowman, award-winning author of Starfish and Summer Bird Blue

"The world is lush and intense, the voice intoxicating, and the message eternal. Morrow will have you under her spell from page one." -- L.L. McKinney, author of A Blade So Black and A Dream So Dark

"A lush, colorful, and deeply moving masterpiece. An irresistible and perfectly bewitching read that I couldn't put down!" --Jay Coles, composer and critically-acclaimed author of Tyler Johnson Was Here

"A compelling tale packed with endlessly inventive magical concepts, blazingly current social commentary, and heroines you'll fall hopelessly in love with. I'm obsessed." -- Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex series and finalist for the John W. Campbell Award

"A rich, intricate dive into mythology, misogynoir, and the way the world makes black girls out to be monsters. Like the siren's song, A Song Below Water is irresistibly compelling." --Heidi Heilig, award-winning author of For a Muse of Fire and The Girl from Everywhere

"Morrow seamlessly blends timely topics with timeless myths in a story that will convince readers of the power of their voice." --Parker Peevyhouse, author of The Echo Room
