First zit. First crush. First…mermaid’s tail?
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. Embarassing. Moment. Ever.
soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But
this revelation raises a serious question: if Mom was a mermaid, how did
Jade is determined to find out. But how does a
plus-sized, 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 her crush, Luke?
This summer is about to get a lot more interesting…
Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath (#2)
Jade begins her summer
confused. Yes, there's that whole "will this be a leg-day or a tail-day"
kind of confusion, but Jade's got even bigger problems: it's been three
weeks since Mom returned to the ocean with no news of her whereabouts.
Plus, it's been twenty-one days since Jade first kissed her mer-boy Luke
Will Mom find the enchanted tidal pool that will allow her to become human? And why is Luke acting so weird?
The SEAquel to Helene Boudreau's critically acclaimed Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings is as energetic and fresh as a salty sea breeze.
Real Mermaids Don't Need High Heels (#3)
The only thing that
terrifies Jade more than the ocean is dancing at the Fall Formal.
Because Jade has two left feet—er, flippers. Who knew being a high
school freshman is even more awkward than being a plus-size aqua-phobic
mer-girl? At least her only drama is of the human variety...
Mermish Council has just declared that all land-dwelling mers but
return to the ocean. Pronto. But there's no way Jade is going to let her
mom, or Luke, her...boyfriend? mer-guy-friend?, disappear into the
deep, dark ocean. Again. After all, a girl's got to have a date to her
If Jade can stop mer-mageddon, finding a plus-size dress that doesn't look like a shower curtain should be a piece of cake.
What a cute series! Do I believe in mermaids? Not really. Would I like to? Sure!
I won these three books recently from In the Hammock and started leafing through the first book the day they arrived. Although I have plenty to read already I couldn't put it down. It was just the right book at just the right time. A cute, quirky, light, easy read. When I finished the first book I immediately read the next two in the series. The characters are likeable and their little town is interesting and has plenty of action. I would have loved this series as a kid and I'm happy to say I still enjoy it now. I look forward to reading the next book (and more from this author!) coming out later this year.
