Vassa in the Night Hardback edition by Sarah Porter
Sarah Porter is a writer, artist, and freelance teacher who lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two cats. She is the author of the Lost Voices Trilogy (Lost Voices, Waking Storms, The Twice Lost) in addition to Vassa in the Night--all for the teen audience. She has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from City College.
In the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, the fashionable people put on cute shoes, go to parties in warehouses, drink on rooftops at sunset, and tell themselves they've arrived. A whole lot of Brooklyn is like that now but not Vassa's working class neighbourhood.
A teen finds herself abused, neglected, and hopeless on the icy shores of Alaska and expects to die when she tumbles to the icy waves below, but instead undergoes an astonishing transformation into a mermaid. Elated when she is taken in by a tribe, she soon comes to realize there is more drama and malevolence there than she could've ever expected and has to decide if she can stand up for what's right.
In the captivating sequel to Lost Voices, a mermaid versus human war looms on the horizon, Luce just wants to live peacefully on her own. But when she meets Dorian, her sworn enemy, and falls in love, she is forced to go back and fulfill her rightful role as queen of the mermaids in the exciting second installment of this paranormal trilogy.
There Ada meets kids of many different shapes, stripes, and appendages, such as a girl with dragonfly wings and a seal-boy. As she adjusts to her new life, Ada senses that the facility is keeping a secret that could upend everything the world knows about Chimeras. But will someone put a stop to her efforts to uncover the truth?
