Goodreads synopsis:

"Liz Kessler makes a splash with this tightly written, highly imaginative debut." -- FAMILYFUN
For as long as she can remember, twelve-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long, her mother has seemed anxious to keep her away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery - about her own identity, the mysterious father she's never met, and the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water's surface. With a sure sense of suspense and richly imaginative details, first-time author Liz Kessler lures us into a glorious undersea world where mermaids study shipwrecks at school and Neptune rules with an iron trident - an enchanting fantasy about family secrets, loyal friendship, and the convention-defying power of love.

Hey guys!

Here's another review by Bailey!


Q: What is this book about? Can you summarize it a bit?
A: It's about a girl who doesn't know she's half mermaid because her father is a merman. Her father died of a fisherman who shot him instead of a fish. He saved the life of his friend who was a fish. Emily finds out that she's a mermaid, and has most of her adventures as half a mermaid. She makes a friend, Emma who is a full mermaid, and she has a human friend Madison.

Q: What would you rate this book? Why?
A: 5 stars, because I love how she figures out stuff, and how her mother didn't tell her it.

Q: What did you like about this book? What did you dislike?
A: I liked it because she figures out stuff. I didn't not like anything, really it's perfect.

Q: Are you going to continue with the series?
A: Ummm...yes (Bailey realizes that I have the next two books on my shelf and flips out and hugs me. I will take this reaction as a yes.)

Q: Do you have anything else to say to the people reading this?
A: Umm.. Readers always believe in unicorns..not just mermaids, but unicorns.

I hope you guys enjoyed Bailey's review! Stay tuned for more reviews this week!
