The Accidental Siren

Mara Lynn is the most beautiful girl in the world.  James Parker is the ordinary boy who discovers her power.  Set in 1994, "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.

Author: Jake Vander Ark


This book is well written and has very interesting concepts.  It is told from the point of view of the 12-year-old protagonist, yet still poses questions about love and lust, good and evil, responsibility, hope, and what it means to be family.  The author has a great vocabulary and an amazing ability to paint with words in order to show the reader his story.  

Not for the squeamish or the easily offended, and not for children.  Some of the bullying that occurs is violent and there are some bloody scenes.
