Publisher Description

In this young adult novel by award-winning author Anna-Marie McLemore, two non-binary teens are pulled into a magical world under a lake - but can they keep their worlds above water intact?

Everyone who lives near the lake knows the stories about the world underneath it, an ethereal landscape rumored to be half-air, half-water. But Bastián Silvano and Lore Garcia are the only ones who’ve been there. Bastián grew up both above the lake and in the otherworldly space beneath it. Lore’s only seen the world under the lake once, but that one encounter changed their life and their fate.

Then the lines between air and water begin to blur. The world under the lake drifts above the surface. If Bastián and Lore don’t want it bringing their secrets to the surface with it, they have to stop it, and to do that, they have to work together. There’s just one problem: Bastián and Lore haven’t spoken in seven years, and working together means trusting each other with the very things they’re trying to hide.

“Went into this excited to read a book with two trans/non-binary leads. Did not expect it to be centered around neurodivergency. I’m trans non-binary, latiné and have adhd and yes I wish I found this book when I was younger. Due to personal taste I’m not a big fan of YA in general but I had to give this a chance and I think it’s worth the read. The dialogue was a little hard to get into at first but it got better. Maybe it’s because I already live as someone with adhd, but I thought some of the adhd and fighting with your brain stuff was a little overdone. Though looking back I know this is exactly how I felt when I was that age. Would definitely recommend to middle, high schoolers and their families. Or those looking for representation in a YA setting.”
Thinking Face“2.5! This was cute, albeit a bit underwhelming? We don’t get to spend much time in the world under the lake for as much as it’s hyped up, and that was a little disappointing. I will say that the whole anxiety with Bastián having difficulty in retaining how to self-inject their HRT is relatable, but I really wish the narrative had at least considered how they could have looked up YouTube walkthroughs (as someone who also had to do that).”

““Once you get past the fear of being seen, you can get to the part where you know you’re not alone.” WOW. I do honestly believe this book FINALLY got me out of my reading slump! Thank goodness! This book truly immersed me like no other. I am neither Trans nor Brown nor have ADHD, however I truly believed I was in the mind of both Bastian and Lore! It also had wonderful descriptions of scenery as well. Also the relationship building!? MWAH!!! This short book truly had me hooked in the first 10 pages and I love it for that!”
