Morrow's (Take The Mic, editor, 2019) latest is a captivating modern fantasy about mermaids, friendship, and self-discovery set against the challenges of racism and sexism.

Tavia is cynical toward a world that forces her to hide her siren powers while Effie is haunted by survivor's guilt after a traumatic childhood incident. Their world turns upside down when a siren is murdered and Tavia's magic is accidentally exposed. The girls' unbreakable sisterhood proves to be the strongest magic of all and will help them find happiness, peace and safety in a world full of bigotry, oppression, and injustice.
