Ok, I am writing a story in verse and the only two titles I can think of are:
Lone Tides (sucks, I know)
and...
Ocean Song (which works much better)

So there's three girls, Sanity, Kym and Leah

Sanity: is in a mental hospital because she does whatever 'the song' tells her to do. Loves classical music and opera singing. Very eccentric

Kym: an abused girl who loves the sea and calls herself 'the daughter of the sea'.

Leah: a girl found on the beach, sent from foster home to foster home, no one wanted her because she 'brought bad luck', until a hippyish woman called Faye adopts her

The three girls must save themselves, their families, and discover a secret that has brought so much pain.

^I like both the titles you already have, if you want some suggestions for others I have a couple that I'll post for your consideration but whose merit I am unsure of. The Darkest Depths. Siren Secrets. Drowning. Titles aren't my strong point...
...which is why I need title advice. Any of the following titles catchy for a novel or should I just scrap these and go in an entirely different direction (for the title, and I'm just posting the titles 'cause I really just wanna find out what titles are attention grabbers)
The Secret Histories
The Secret Histories of Our Enemies
The Book of Dead Days
The Dead Book
The House With a Thousand Doors
For the Sins of our Fathers

So my title ideas are;

1. Asylum Sisters
2. Low Tide
3. Hold Us Down
4. Drowning
5. Secret of the Sea
6. Siren Secrets
7. Sea Foam
8. Seashell Wishers
9. Water Bond
10. Tide Rising

Hope I helped :P

I need a new title for my book The Immortal Island. It's about fairies and elves, and they live on a strange island in the middle of a magical ocean. It's about the lives of nine fairies and what happens to them at school and so on.

Question

Um, for AlgebraAddict, how bout something like "Mystical"... I dunno, IU suck at titles! :P

But I have my own little problem of my own, everybody. I've been writing my Irish Mythology Story for a while now, AND I STILL HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT A FREAKIN TITLE! D:

I've gone through so many: The Falling Darkness, The Son of Darkness, And then The Darkness Fell, etc, etc...

Really, it's just about Irish mythology in the dark underlife of Ireland, where no one sees it: all the old creatures, the remains of god's and their spirits, etc... Any ideas for a title?

Because there's already a book called that, I think. I'm not sure, but I think so. :P
