Faruqi built her underwater world with so much attention to detail that I felt like I was in the ocean with all the characters. She’s tackled on this unexplored area of fiction with such strong imagery that you actually end up learning so much about the ocean while reading. Her characters are also very well-written. Carolline is shy yet very strong and brave. Faruqi also cleverly explores that kind of expectations that people, in a patriarchic world, attach to women through the relationship between Carolline and her mother. She then bravely crushes that and lets Carolline choose for herself.
