Eureka is suffering through the first months without her mother, whom she lost in a car accident when a wave crashed and pushed them off of a bridge. She barely made it out alive herself. In the aftermath, dealing with an abominable stepmother, she leans on her best friends Cat and Brooks. When a mysterious boy named Ander crashes into Eureka's car and life, things become complicated. Eueka finds out her mother left her items in her will, things that have very important implications. A locket, a thunderstone, and a book with a story of two lovers in Atlantis are what she gets. The key to figuring out Eureka's history and connection to the fantastic story of Atlantis is Ander. All she has to do is heed her mother's warning - never cry.

Opinion: 

I enjoyed this book, but it was not a page turner. I found I put it down often and came back to it. However, it was a very imaginative and creative story. I was pleasantly surprised because it was a new take on fiction and romance. The author did a great job creating the legend that the story is centered around. I did find the story was a little slow in the beginning. There weren't many conflicts that the character had to face besides emotional instability. Once the plot thickened there was more action. Even though there wasn't a lot of action, there were many emotional ups and downs that the author portrayed very well, especially since she had to do this without making the charactrer cry. Overall, it was a good read.
