In Lost Voices, by Sarah Porter, orphan Luce lives with uncle Peter, a drunk in Alaska. When he attacks her, she becomes a myth: she transforms into a mermaid after he leaves.
When she is found by the queen of a tribe, she is exposed to the traditions of a mermaid: obey the rules and sink human boats using their siren voices, to gain revenge for the abuse each mermaid experienced. But Luce loves a few humans, like her missing and probably dead father. Will Luce surrender to peer pressure of the mermaids and commit mass murder?
I'd recommend the start of the Lost Voices series to teens who love to read about mermaids or sirens.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog

I absolutely loved this book. Caspar Lee is a funny and caring YouTuber who has millions of fans/viewers. He has taught me so much in his videos. In this book that he and his mom wrote, shares Caspar's story from when he was born up until now. I learned so much about him in this book. I'm very proud of how much Caspar has succeeded. This book has many ups and downs of his and his family's journey. This book has brought me tears to my eyes and laughs. This book is one of my favorites that I have read. I would really recommend Caspar's book.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
