Real Mermaids DON'T WEAR TOE RINGS by Helen Boudreau
If she hadn't been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?
Most. Embarrassing. Moment. Ever.
Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?
Jade is determined to find out. So how does a plus-size, aqua-phobic mer-girl go about doing that exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend, Cori, and to her crush, Luke?
This summer is about to get a lot more interesting...
This book is said to be for tweens to young teens.
Rachel's Thoughts: This book is most certainly not for older teens who are looking for a deep, thought provoking story. Unless of course they are die hard mermaid fans like myself. :) This is a lighthearted story definitely geared toward tween girls. As far as the story itself, I thought it moved along quiet well and had some fun little mermaid 'facts' to satisfy the fantasy lover in me. I gave this book 4 bookmarks.
Lakela's Thoughts: I really liked this book. It was quick, easy to understand, and about a girl in junior high (around me age) who starts to experience new things in life, she just happens to be a mermaid. I gave this book 4 bookmarks.
