Publisher's Summary

Harrison Harrison - H2 to his mom - is a lonely teenager who's been terrified of the water ever since he was a toddler in California, when a huge sea creature capsized their boat, and his father vanished. One of the "sensitives" who are attuned to the supernatural world, Harrison, along with his mother , has just moved to the worst possible place for a boy like him: Dunnsmouth, a Lovecraftian town perched on rocks above the Atlantic, where strange things go on by night, monsters lurk under the waves, and creepy teachers run the local high school.
On Harrison's first day at school, his mother, a marine biologist, disappears at sea. Harrison must attempt to solve the mystery of her accident, which puts him in conflict with a strange church, a knife-wielding killer, and the Deep Ones--fish-human hybrids that live in the bay. It will take all his resources and an unusual host of allies to defeat the danger and find his mother.

The premise sounded so interesting...

This is definitely a young adult book - I'm not sure I'd even call it young adult - it's actually geared toward early tweens. The description sounded intriguing and if it had been handled better, it could have been a great mystery. Things were weird from the beginning, though. A slower discovery of the peculiarities of the town and less scooby doo style monsters would have made for a much better book. Look, I like YA scifi/fantasy novels, but this was just to juvenile for my taste. Far more juvenile than the description suggests, so beware.

This was for a younger audience but enjoyable. Excellent voice for a young Deep One.
