Description

15-year-old Corinth was just trying to clean up the beach; she never expected to meet a mermaid, let alone be nearly drowned by one. It was the start of a very strange friendship!

After Skylla, the deadly fanged mermaid, mysteriously lets Corinth live, they grow closer through a cautious exchange of stories, gifts, jokes, and sign language. Mermaids, it turns out, eat people, but however terrifying Skylla may look, she’s a little younger, a little smaller, and perhaps a little too soft for all that. Bewitched by Corinth and their growing bond, she learns about all the best things in life on land: books, burgers, donuts, and this strange chattering human sound called laughter. But a storm is brewing – both at sea and in Corinth’s increasingly dangerous relationship with her obsessively jealous boyfriend – and a magical bargain may be the only thing that can save her, at a tremendous cost.

A whimsical dark fantasy retelling of “The Little Mermaid,” The Sea in You upends everything you thought you knew about magical creatures of the deep, on a whirlwind journey to a whole new world you’ve only dreamed of before!

I loved this book, it definitely had me wondering what would happen next the whole time! I loved the new mermaid lore tied in with the old ones. It was such a refreshing take! Also queer, which was a huge bonus! <3

Corinth was trying to clean up the beach when she met a mermaid and began a very strange friendship. I absolutely loved this book! One of my favorite reads this year. The art is adorable and the story drew me in instantly. I was not aware that this was a webcomic until after I had finished it, but even if you have read the comic online I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to get my hands on the physical copy! There is a very toxic relationship in the book, but it is handled with sensitivity.

The Sea in You is a thoroughly modern reimagining of the classic Little Mermaid story in all the best ways. The art is wonderful, the character's feel real in their designs, and the underwater scenes in particular are beautifully illustrated. While no means incomplete on its own, the story ends with a clear hook for a sequel that I can't wait to read someday.
