Siren Sisters by Dana Langer - ESSENTIAL

Langer, Dana Siren Sisters, 247 pages.  Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing Division, 2017.  $16.99.  Language: G (0 swears, 0 ‘F’); Mature Content: PG (a mild kiss) Violence: PG 13 (death, gun, wolf slash).

Lolly is 12 years old, soon to be 13. She is a siren and so are her 3 sisters. At the beginning Lolly is always complaining about everything and saying she doesn’t want to kill sailors. However when she realizes it’s a life or death situation she stops complaining and finally embraces her power. 

I really liked the book because Lolly and the sisters were very strong despite not having a mom and their father never being around much. Also I like how the author develops Lolly. My favorite character throughout the whole book has to be the Sea Witch. This book was very enjoyable and it was a book that anyone can read.
