    This did not go quite as I envisioned. The blurb doesn't specifically actually say what the book is about, so I thought it was a mermaid book! Hello?! Water on the cover! THERE WERE NO MERMAIDS. But it does have sirens.

    The problem is, I feel like I just reread Matched.

    Atlantia was very watery. And blue. And ethereal. I could basically feel the water sloshing around and that is fabulous. The descriptions of the world were perfection. Just think of The City of Ember but...underwater instead of underground. Then I got bored. The writing was beautiful and very plain (which I actually like) but it was very repetitious.

    And Rio felt so like Cassia from Matched. (Who I really didn't particularly like.) But she has a boy (cue romantic sighs) called True Beck. I LOVE THAT NAME! I loved True. He was really sweet and kind and useless and had no personality but oh so sweet.

    If you liked Matched, READ THIS BOOK. If you like dystopians with interesting settings, give it a go! I like the style, but I was bored to a watery grave.

    Just know, before you read it:
    - It's not a mermaid story. (I seriously thought it was)
    - But there are sirens. Just without fins.
    - It's got Ally Condie's very specific style.
    - True Beck is adorable.
    - Everything else is just there whatever. True Beck, I tell you.
