Sia practically grew up in the water scuba diving, and wreck dives are run of the mill. Take the tourists out. Explore the reef. Uncover the secrets locked in the sunken craft. But this time ... the dive goes terribly wrong. Attacked by a mysterious creature, Sia's boat is sunk, her customers are killed, and she washes up on a deserted island with no sign of rescue in sight. Waiting in the water is a seemingly unstoppable monster that is still hungry. In the jungle just off the beach are dangers best left untested. When Sia reunites with a handful of survivors, she sees it as the first sign of light. Sia is wrong. Between the gulf of deadly seawater in front of her and suffocating depth of the jungle behind her, even the island isn't what it seems. Haunted by her own mistakes and an inescapable dread, Sia's best hope for finding answers may rest in the center of the island, at the bottom of a flooded sinkhole that only she has the skills to navigate.

Kirkus Review

A group of teens are marooned on a creepy deserted island in Lutz's heart-pounding debut. Diving is in 17-year-old Tasia "Sia" Gianopoulos' blood. Sia's Yiayia (grandmother) spent much of her youth free diving in the waters off Kalymnos, Greece, and now Sia helps her mother lead diving trips in the Florida Keys. She has a bad feeling about diving the wreck of the USS Andrews, but since her father's incarceration for murder they desperately need the money. Sure enough, a client dies, and when a nearby charter, chock full of science students, arrives to help, they're attacked by a giant tentacled creature. Soon after, Sia wakes on an island that shouldn't exist along with her 7-year-old brother, Felix; her crush, Ben, whom she met right before the attack; and his ex-girlfriend, Steph. Simple survival is hard enough without the creature that attacked them lurking right offshore, and a series of disturbing events leads to the island's mysterious heart and a shocking revelation. Lutz strikes the perfect balance of realistic and uncanny, and Sia's dive sequences, in particular, are seriously spooky. While this type of thing has been done before, Lutz does it so darn well that readers won't mind, and the choice to tell the story via Sia's letters to her father adds poignance. Sia's family is Greek American, Ben is cued as black, and Steph is white. An escapist thriller that will reel readers right in.
