Since his dad's disappearance in a scuba diving accidents three years earlier, thirteen-year-old Ford Kahr has avoided the water. Strange, since his older brother Jag is a swimming champion and his sister has an unexplained connection to the water.
When Jag swims to investigate the disappearing island, an accident forces Ford to leave behind his fears to save his brother. A shocking discovery about himself leads him to an surprising underwater discovery that helps him understand the legends of sea monsters and undersea people. However, it also leads to grave danger and tough choices for Ford and his sister, Mercy.
Author Sandy Green paints a clear picture of a realistic picture of an underwater fantasy world. What started slow ended up in an action paced adventure suitable for the middle grade reader ages 8-12. While The Tide Changers may appeal to the reluctant reader who likes shorter novels, the ending felt rushed, missing out on great potential. However, it did leave an opening for a sequel. Good to Recommended.
