    One thought on “Into the Deep”

    1. This book was pretty much amazing! The synopsis gave a lot of information but not enough to spoil the book for me which made it even more intriguing. And of course, the front cover is absolutely phenomenal, it fits perfectly with the story. I've never read a book where the character can hear people's thoughts, that's mainly why i was so excited to start this book!Into the Deep is through the eyes of Ivy who I thought was a "innocent" teenage girl at first but then you see the type of friends she [...]

    2. *Warning spoilers ahead*Ivy is a typical seventeen year old, part of the popular group. Trying to fit in, doing things she doesn't really want to do because she doesn't want to be alone. Things change for Ivy the night her and her friends sneak into the Country clubs swimming pool. The night of her accident. Now she isn't just the typical seventeen year old, now she can hear the things that no one should. Now she can hear the personal things that no one shares with anyone, she can hear the thoug [...]

    3. You can find this review also on my blog: justfantasybooksadisReview:After Ivy slips in the pool and hits her head on the stairs, she finds herself with the ability to read people's thoughts. It takes some time to realise that she's not crazy.But her ability can save the school. Or not.A student from her high school wants to blow up the entire school, but Ivy is the only one who knows that.

    4. This starts off as interesting, and gets more and more so. The main character, Ivy, is at first under the influence of a superficial, vain set of girls who see themselves as 'high flyers' but gradually, her new abilities lead her not only to detect a deadly threat to her fellow students but also, that people are often very different from how they appear to be. This has happy and unhappy consequences for Ivy, who begins to question her old values.In company with the School Bad Boy (colourfully an [...]

    5. (Actual rating - 2.5)Into the Deep was an okay story, but at times, it dragged.Ivy was an okay character, but it annoyed me how she took the bombing threat so lightly at times.At one point, she actually asked Brant if they could forget about the whole situation for a couple of days. I understand that at the time, she was going through a bit of a rough patch, but really? She was seriously going to forget about the bomb threat for a couple of days, when it was so close to happening? I really didn' [...]

    6. Wicked good book! I loved how it touched on bullying, and had a bit of a love story in there as well. Brent was an awesome character, and I loved Ivy. This was a great book, and I really recommend it. From the bullying, to the clique of girls that was such an accurate portrayal of high school life, this a must read that is too good to miss!

    7. I received this book free from Lauryn , in exchange of a honest review. Thank you, Lauryn!When I first read about this book, I was really excited about it. It sounded like something fresh and I had to read it. So I contacted Lauryn and asked her for a copy for review and I was soooo happy when she said “Yes”! And, belive me, I don’t regret that I did it. This book was AMAZING! I loved it and I want more and more!The greatest thing about this book is that you can’t find fantasy. No fantas [...]

    8. Awesome! Way cute! Loved this story!! Although I should be deeply disturbed by it. My biggest fear in life for my children is being victims of crazy kids at school. The book starts off with Ivy telling the story of how it all happened. At school, Ivy had a good crowd of friends. She didn't look down at people, but she didn't stick up for them too. Being shallow and following what everyone else though . that was the life right? When Christy got a hold of the key to the pool at the Club house, the [...]

    9. I received this book in exchange of an honest review and all that I can say is this "This book was totally awesome!"Ivy is just a normal high school girl. But her normal life changes when she's going out swimming with her friends and by accident she hits her head. That was the point that changed her life because she started hearing thoughts. At first she doesn't believe in her new powers and thinks of herself as crazy but later on she starts believing in it. However, she is not alone. The bad bo [...]

    10. Into the Deep is the debut novel from author, Lauryn April. Into the Deep is one of those books that I found myself getting lost in. The main character, Ivy, is quite likable, easy to relate to, and I was able to get caught up in her life as she dealt with her new ability. Another aspect I enjoyed about Into the Deep were the sensory details, they weren't overwhelming but they did allow me to feel as though I could envision the scene being described.One of my favorite parts of this novel were th [...]

    12. I won this book in a blog giveaway, and gosh am I glad I did! Into the Deep is one of those stories that really sticks with you even after you've finished reading it. A great premise with interesting characters and an adorable love story.Ivy Daniels is just a normal teenager, but an accident at the local country club lands her with head traumad after that she can suddenly hear the thoughts of all the people around her. As she struggles to find out how to deal with this new ability, Ivy realizes [...]

    13.

    14. *I read the re-released version of this book*Into the Deep is an exceptional read. I had so much fun reading this book and I loved every single bit of it. Ivy’s adventure is something very exciting and dangerous that everybody will love. This is Lauryn’s first book, but she writes like a pro.Ivy’s life was normal before the accident happened. She had a nice family and great friends (or not???). When she hit her head on the bottom of the pool, Ivy gained some paranormal abilities: she could [...]

    15. For a fan of the YA and paranormal genres Into the Deep is an intriguing notion; this is a story which tells how the world of a popular high school girl becomes overwhelming after she falls in a swimming pool, banging her head, waking the next day and realizing she is telepathic.Ivy is slowly ostracized by her prominent group of friends, as she becomes aware of their real thoughts and cruelty towards her and others. Not only does Lauryn April use Ivy's telepathy to reveal the true nature of peop [...]

    16. This is book was so refreshingly real. While the main character, Ivy Daniels, has a power, the book stays away from the paranormal realm dominating the YA market lately. Author Lauryn April gives creative descriptions, captivating characters, and real every day problems existing in everyone's lives just beyond the surface.Ivy hits her head and almost dies and then discovers she has the power to hear everyone's thoughts around her. She learns that sometimes she hears things she'd want to know and [...]

    17. I think this was a lovely book! I felt it was written for a slightly younger audience than I'm used to when I read YA, but that didn't stop me from reading. It was an interesting storyline, an original spin on the paranormal, and well-written (despite a few grammar issues > the usual suspect then/than). The only reason I'm knocking off one star is that some of the characters weren't very engaging (Ivy's two best friends are falling by the wayside so early on in the story that I didn't really [...]

    18. I don't read much YA fiction, but this was a great book. If I had a teen I wouldn't mind him/her reading it, there was a moral without being preachy, it was paranormal or supernatural, but not in that it had vamps or shifters, the Main Character could read people's minds. The way it portrayed High School friendships and relationships was spot on to me, something I managed to avoid in High School. I liked the way the relationship in the story developed it was realistic and sweet and although ther [...]

    19. I received 'Into the Deep' by Lauryn April in a contest through Librarything.Ivy is just an ordinary girl, at least she was until the slip into the pool occurred. A hit to the noggin and Ivy acquires an extraordinary gift- she can read minds! But with this gift there are consequences and responsibilities. To hear the inner thoughts of those around you isn't always the best ability to have, but because of this new ability, Ivy is given the chance to save not just one life, but the lives of many.E [...]

    20. 3.5 stars. 3 star for the first half. 4 star for the second half.Well, I downloaded this as a freebie back in 2012 and it had been sitting on my kindle for ages so as part of ' "We (heart) YA"'s ABC challenge I decided to read this.For the first 20-25% I was a little bored with it, finding it hard to get into and Ivy's friends were hard to like. However when Brant really came a part of her life, after the school classes and he more or less saved her, I started to really get into it. Romance read [...]

    21. Although the action is fairly predictable , it seems very natural and connected to reality ( I don’t mean reading thoughts is normal, I’m refering to the relationships between the characters ,about the way they act ,their way of thinking ). It was more difficult to predict the end and I think everyone who got there asked themselves how they didn’t notice what happened at the beginning of the book.I liked the fact that every gesture was detailed, but there was no exageration. That’s why I [...]

    22. 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 Laurelyn made a great selection of names that got along with their personalities. They a [...]

    23. Got the free preview on this one and had to finish it. Stayed up until 2am, in fact. It's about a popular teen who gets ESP after hitting her head at the pool. Now she can read minds and discovers that her friends are shallow, boys are gross, and her dad is too concerned with a woman named Liz. Oh, and someone is plotting to blow up her school. Best for older teens, as there is profanity, drinking, and sexual situations.

    24. For starters, I could not set this book down. The whole premise of having an injury and being given an ability was genius. Well-written and emotionally charged, I found this book to be a total gem. At one point it reminded me of the 90's movie, Heather's, only these characters were a bit more down to earth. This is one of those rare times I wish would let me give more than five stars. LOVED it!

    25. I loved this book. I saw it on amazon and since it was a debut novel and i just love indi authors, i decided to get it and give it a try. I am so happy i did. You have the good girl with ability to read minds, add a bad boy who wants to help her and you got yourself a great book. Lauryn i hope you continue to write because you have an amazing talent. Great job.

    26. 3.5 starsI seriously enjoyedThis book! The MC made some dumb decisions but she had to to be an example for teens reading the book. Overall I really liked it and thought it was a super fun story!
