I like Lost Voices because it really explains feeligns. Tehre isn't a single part of the book that is hpapy. Mermaids luring people to their death is a common idea, but people generally don't think abou t the mermaids themselves, or their purposes. Reading the book makes me feel as if I was there, swimming alongside Luce, watching everything. That feeling helps me to understand the characters very well. I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy sad and powerful stories.
