"Ripple" is a novel by Mandy Hubbard which focuses around seventeen year-old Lexi and her curse and struggles as a siren.

Horrified by the drowning death of Steven, the only boy she has ever loved two years before, Lexi has become an outcast at school, rejected by all but one boy named Cole, Steven's best friend. Steven's sister, Sienna, Lexi's best friend, has also shunned Lexi for the drowning. Indeed, Lexi's entire former group of friends taunts and bullies her on a daily basis. Lexi visits Steven's grave for the succeeding years, confessing to him that she is a siren, leading males to drowning deaths. Because of this, she has shut herself off from the rest of the world. On one visit to Steven's grave, Lexi is overheard by Sienna, who asks Lexi if she really did love Steven. Lexi says that she did and their friendship is rekindled.

In order to deal with her desire to swim, Lexi visits a mountaintop lake. At the same time, her friends return to her, and Cole and Lexi grow close. But Lexi breaks things off with Cole because she knows he will either die or leave her when he discovers that she is a siren. At the same time, a nix named Erik emerges, promising Lexi that if they fall in love, her curse will be broken. But Lexi rejects Erik for Cole in the end, and Erik tries to drown Cole and tells Sienna what Lexi really is. Lexi then kills Erik as he tries to kill her, and she and Cole confess their love to one another. Sienna later tells Lexi that if she ever comes around her again, she will expose Lexi. Lexi later learns that her curse has been broken by true love between her and Cole. She says good bye to Steven's grave one last time.
