Deep Water by Watt Key - ADVISABLE

Key, Watt Deep Water, 260 pages.  Farrar Straus Giroux (Macmillan), 2018.  $23.  Language: G (1 swear); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (shark attack).

After adjusting to life with her Mom and her new job in Atlanta. Julie is excited to get back to the Gulf Coast with her dad and to their mutual love of scuba-diving.  Unfortunately, their first clients of the summer are an entitled kid from her old school and his snob of a father.  Diving is dangerous enough when everything is going right, but when something goes wrong both below and above, Julie has to try her best to keep herself and their clients alive until hopefully someone can find and rescue them.  There are more dangers than just sharks in the oceans. 

I have liked all of Key’s adventure books.  I think my absolute favorite is Terror at Bottle Creek.  Kids who enjoy taut adventure stories will continue to enjoy this one.
