Into the Deep by Lauryn April


Ivy Daniels is a high school junior still learning who she is. After almost drowning, Ivy finds herself with an ability she doesn’t want, an ability to uncover secrets which quickly begins to redefine what she thinks about the people around her as well as herself. Because of this ability, Ivy becomes the one thing that stands between an angry teen and the death of every student on campus. The only problem is she doesn’t know who wants everyone dead. Will she figure out whose secret is that they’re planning to blow up her school, or will she fail to find him in time?

Through her search to do the right thing, Ivy discovers that knowing the thoughts and secrets of those around her may just tear her apart.



The first 3 or 4 chapters left me off the edge. It had me hooked to every word and punctuation. I couldn’t think of anything else but of the next chapters. It gave me suspense feels and made me think that this book is trouble—and I’m so ready for it. It has enough mystery factor to keep me wide awake and kind of scared to what will happen to Ivy and the result of her “accident.”

I love the characters. Author Lauryn made a great selection of names that got along with their personalities. They all fit to the story and very realistic. The cover design was also catchy and fitting to the story.

However, the pace changed and became slower that it had me skimming through paragraphs—even pages. The mystery factor went lower and the story ran in circles.

The ending, though good, was predictable. It had a wow factor for its revelations but less thrilling compared to how it started.

I’m looking forward to character improvement in the sequel.

Rate: 3/5
