“The plot becomes more haunting with every chapter, effectively dragging the reader deeper into the story with every twist and turn.” –Dayla FM, BookCritics.org
Mara Lynn is the most beautiful girl in the world. James Parker is the ordinary boy who discovers her power.
The year is 1994. James, a pudgy twelve-year-old, responds to an ad for a used camcorder at a mysterious suburban home. Before he can knock on the door, he notices boys–a dozen at least–frozen amongst the trees behind the house. Their faces are blank. One boy presses “record” on a walkman and holds it above his head… and then James hears it, the voice of a little girl. Sweet; high like a songbird without the shrill. It was a church song. It came from inside the house.
James doesn’t know it yet, but the girl he’s about to meet is a modern-day siren.
The Accidental Siren depicts the joys and consequences of young love as Mara and James meet, shoot a movie, fend off bullies, and explore the potential of infinite beauty.
“Ah, this is quite odd, but reading your story makes me wanna drink lemonade for some reason. I think it’s because it’s set in summer and I somehow associate lemonade and fizzy drinks with summer…on that note, I’m off to pour myself a glass.”
“As both casual reader and male with spina bifida, I was delightfully surprised to come across this story, and I’m particularly pleased how nuanced and real Whit comes across in his action and character. Big ups!”
“I loved the innocence of the main character, the family dynamics, the twistedness and the truth of who (what) Mara was. The code of childhood reminded me of the way Stephen King writes. The rawness of the events made me believe what was going on.”
“You know that archetypal fear? The type of fear that freezes your brain, curls every hair on your body and makes your whole body feel like it’s recoiling even though you’re frozen in place? Well my archetypal fear is insanity. Few writers have the skill to recreate that kind of insanity, and definitely none that I’ve ever read. It’s easy with movies and TV because you can see it, but with books the author has to describe it such a way that it creates that terrifying truth within the readers mind. Well, near the end of The Accidental Siren, I damn near refused to finish it – that’s how freaked out I was. It was only my dedication to brilliant books that kept me reading, despite the fact that it was 2am, dark and that I live alone.”
“I spent WAY too much time reading this. After all it is 4:30 in the morning and my eyelids are being held open with toothpicks. I love a good book and this one has left me speechless. It left me with chills and a lot to think about. We need more writers like you out there.”
“I feel like a hole has been ripped in me.”
“I’m not exaggerating right now: You touched my heart with this story the way Ms. Meyer failed to do in her novels. It played with my emotions– disturbed me, made me reflect and cry and laugh. It has that ability to connect with readers.The characters really touched me and they felt so real. I dare say, it’s the best I’ve ever read here on Wattpad.”
“This was pretty much the best book I have ever read… seriously.”
“I can honestly say this is one of my favorite books I’ve ever read and not just on Wattpad. By the way, I’ve read a LOT of books. So if you have stories that are better, I’m seriously impressed. You aren’t afraid to bring up topics other people might not want to. Like a twelve-year-old getting a boner. It’s part of life and it happens. I think it’s cool you aren’t afraid to be blunt about stuff like that.”
“This has been the most enjoyable book I have ever read. Not just on Wattpad, EVER! I loved everything about it. I logged onto Wattpad every night just to read the next stanza. I’ve never done that before with anything. If this isn’t the best of your work, I literally can’t even imagine what you have in store with the others.”
“Okay, you have just freaking blown my mind. I feel for the characters like I know them. I relate. The outcome was totally unexpected (at least for me)… yet inevitable. And every last penny on the ground was described with such freaking grace and beauty, it makes me think about pennies in a different light.”
“Wow. That’s the only thing that seems to be echoing around my head at the moment. Wow.”
“This book is amazing and beautifully written. It needs to be shared with the rest of the world.”
“If I like a book, I don’t put it down until it’s finished. And I really liked yours, so there was no way I was waiting until tomorrow to finish it.”
“Oh my Baby Jesus. This book, this book, this book. Speechlessness is not a happy feeling. I am completely hooked like a crackhead. Thank you very much.”
“This is, without a doubt, the most well written creation I have had the pleasure and honor of reading on this site. During the summer of ’94, I was just shy of two years younger than your characters, and the way that they interacted brought back such strong nostalgia of my childhood and simpler times, it was almost overpowering. I will definitely look out for the paperback. I think it would be a great one for my children to read when they get older.”
“THIS GIRL IS FREAKING 12 YEARS OLD! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!”
