The Deep by Rivers Soloman
The most unique book you may ever read! The Deep is based on a hip hop song and is the story of mer-people who are descended from slaves thrown overboard who have evolved to become beautiful, complex creatures of The Deep. One memory keeper must carry all the history of her people but can she bare the weight? I loved this concept and it was really well done. The author does an amazing job of communicating the importance of a shared history especially when it is horrific.
