A Chorus Rises: A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow is about a magical teenager named Naema Bradshaw. Naema is an Eloko – a magical being blessed with the ability to use music and sound to charm others. She is also a popular teen influencer with a large following of fans. Life is good. That is until Naema tells everyone that Tavia Phillips (another teenager) is a siren, a magical being who when she sings is able to control people with her song. Once she shares Tavia’s secret, almost all of Portland turns on Naema. Not even her boyfriend, a fellow Eloko, understands her anymore. Naema decides to run away from it all so she leaves Portland and goes on a trip to visit family. While gone, Naema truly discovers what being Eloko means and finds her own special melody.

A Chorus Rises: A Song Below Water is a great read for fantasy lovers and music-loving teenagers. The book is filled to the brim with sass, love, joy, drama, and forgiveness. It is a uniquely different book. It intrigued me and captured my attention. My only wish is that the book had some more action to keep the story a little more interesting. I am glad I read A Chorus Rises: A Song Below Water; I am sure you will feel the same.
