Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

The novel was recommended by our school librarian, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. It's been two years since Lexi, a siren, drowned her boyfriend. She's been a loner since that day, and she controls the urge to kill by swimming every night in a secluded pond. However, she starts to like a boy in her class, and she fears she might kill him if they get too close. Is Lexi destined to live the rest of her life alone? Who is the new, cute boy who just joined their class, and why does he keep looking at her?

The author does a wonderful job of creating a suspenseful mood. Lexi's inner conflict between the need for friendship and her desire to kill made for an interesting turmoil. The author created a neat twist to the plot, and the climax was not what I was expecting. Students recommend this book too!
