She squeezed them together under the desk to stop the trembling. You should be on page one twelve of your text- book.

She gaped down automatically at the third problem, and she was sure she knew the right answer. It was obvious. It buzzed around her like angry wasps.

She hated the concern growing in his droopy gray eyes.

Luce knew that the quickest way to make them all ignore her again would be just to answer the question. She opened her mouth to say the word. Nothing came out except a kind of faint croak.

Her hands were shaking so much that she had to sit on them. Desperately Luce tried to force her voice to shape the word. Just one word and she would be free again. Her croaking got a little louder.

Most of the time she could talk as well as anyone, even if she almost always chose to keep quiet.

Lately, though, her voice had developed a habit of abandon- ing her whenever she needed it most. Someone squealed and threw a wad of paper at her, clipping her on the side of her head.

Carroll out of his trance. His wobbly eyes spun away from Luce. His huge round cheeks blushed scarlet, though there was no reason why he should feel embarrassed.

She still can distinguish between good humans, bad humans and indifferent ones. In the beginning Luce starts to "tame" her enraged, beautiful voice, gradually steering it to alternative uses, because she wants to shed her crave to kill with it.

Later she notices that working with her voice also hones her singing skills as such. Her bottomless admiration for Russian Catarina, the tribe's ruling queen, secret code breaker and star singer, whose friendship she desperately seeks to win, hinders her from being open about her vocal experiments — until it is to late and the bullies' trap is asbout to snap.

Luce is — like Catarina and the orphaned sisters Violet and Dana, too — a strange and unfathomable character. Sometimes she is samarithian on the border to Sainthood, sometimes unreasonable fangirlish or naive, seeking approval and praise at all costs. When she has a real chance at acquiring a friend in depressive Miriam, she blows it without giving the possibility a thought.

If not for the code the older mermaids would ruthlessly kill the helpless, clingy babies, who end up in the orcas' jaws most of the time. Luce undertakes only one feelble attempt at saving a Larvae, before she capitulates.

Fourteen-year-old Luce is one of those lost girls. After her father vanishes in a storm at sea, she is stuck in a grim, gray Alaskan fishing village with her alcoholic uncle. When her uncle crosses an unspeakable line, Luce reaches the depths of despair. Abandoned on the cliffs near her home, she expects to die when she tumbles to the icy, churning waves below. Instead, she undergoes an astonishing transformation and becomes a mermaid.

A tribe of mermaids finds Luce and welcomes her in—all of them, like her, lost girls who surrendered their humanity in the darkest moments of their lives.

The mermaids are beautiful, free, and ageless, and Luce is thrilled with her new life until she discovers the catch: they feel an uncontrollable desire to drown seafarers, using their enchanted voices to lure ships into the rocks. Can Luce find the courage to challenge the newcomer, even at the risk of becoming rejected and alone once again?

Lost Voices is a captivating and wildly original tale about finding a voice, the healing power of friendship, and the strength it takes to forgive.

With her mother long passed away and her father killed the prior year in a shipwreck, Luce lives with her uncle in the far reaches of Alaska.

Invisible to those in her class, quiet and shy, Luce tries to draw as little attention as possible to herself — especially from her uncle, who has a habit of beating her, or worse, when he gets drunk.

Desperate, Luce runs away but loses her footing and falls from the stormy, darkened cliffside to the churning water below. Instead of dying, however, Luce beings to change. Her body is torn apart and reshaped, and she is reborn as a mermaid. In the sea, Luce finds that she is not alone — she is one of the countless many young girls abused, maligned and neglected, born into new flesh in their most desperate and hopeless hour.

It is here, in the cold waters off the Alaskan coast that Luce finds a new home with a tribe of mermaids.

As a metaskaza, or newly made mermaid, Luce has much to learn. The mermaids live by a strict, unbreakable code called the timahk — and of paramount importance to their code is that a mermaid can never physically harm another of her kind, and they cannot allow humans to know of their existence. To break the timahk is to be exiled forever.And that is just what I needed to read. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. She slunk after the other students, staying close to the walls.

The song entered into his mind, and Luce suddenly understood him. The mermaid natural song also is one of death and destruction, but Luce is able to fight that urge for hate and death and make her own, powerful music. As all the mermaids are girls that have known misery and pain at the hands of mortals, they take glee in their killing — all, except Luce.

When she understands what her song can do, and how the other mermaids gleefully take part in sinking ships, she wrestles with her conscience and her desire to belong and be loved. None of her other teachers ever called on her.
