Product Details

Praise

This quick read is light and charming but also heartfelt.
—VOYA

Should be an easy sell to girls looking for a friendship story with more than a touch of make believe.
—Kirkus Reviews

Kessler combines the whimsy of life as a mermaid with the problems of an average middle-schooler…Plenty of dialogue and Ledwidge’s soft, dreamlike line drawings add textual and visual interest, making for a zippy story in an attractive package.
—School Library Journal

What will most delight readers are the details of undersea life, from course work in hair brushing to ‘scale polish’ for decorating tails.
—Booklist

Liz Kessler and book mention in article “CBC Plans Online Venture with Girl Scouts”
—PW Children’s Bookshelf

I’m a fan of Emily Windsnap. She’s smart, she’s spunky, she can be brave, but mostly she’s just an ordinary teenaged girl that just happens to have a tail.
—AmoxCalli blog

A complex story with deepening questions about love and its meanings, anger and its consequences, redemption and hope for the future…couched in a lushly detailed story about underwater life that should capture the attention and hearts of girls who love adventurous, romantic tales encased in charming fantasy elements.
