For the past couple of days I've had random urges to read old books I can't remember the names of.

One in particular I read maybe 10 or so years ago. It was a kid/teen book and I'm really fuzzy on the details. I only remember that at one point, the protagonists (1 male, 1 female, both teenage) are in an underwater room or cave with a mural on one of the walls. The male protagonist is partially trapped in a tank with a pufferfish at the other end, and I think he kicks his way out? There's also something about a lot of pressure (like the bends) and the mural shattering when a door is opened in the room, relieving the pressure.

Sorry I can't recall more detail on this, it was pretty much half my life ago :)

  • did the novel have a scifi/fantasy element to it? the description you've posted doesn't sound like it. – phantom42 Aug 12 '15 at 17:05
  • I have a vague memory of a book that may or may not fit... did it involve an alien invasion where the main characters were a spoiled rich girl and the son of a genetic engineer? – FuzzyBoots Aug 12 '15 at 18:53

I doubt it but you might look at Deep Wizardry by Diane Duane.

  • Why do you think that this is the book? – phantom42 Aug 12 '15 at 17:34
  • It does match a few things in the description (Male and female teenagers and a decent amount of it happens underwater) That said I don't recall the scene described however it has been a while since I read it so I put it as a possible answer. I kinda doubt it is it but there is a chance. – birdman3131 Aug 12 '15 at 17:38

    You should take any information you have (and any external sources, plot summaries, reviews, etc.) and edit it all into your answer – Jason Baker Aug 12 '15 at 17:49
