Echo is very jolly when she finds a precious looking stone with a string object. She puts it in a place in her room. After school Echo headed home and, finds her object gone! She is sure her older sis stole it! Crystal! She cries. They got into a big fight arguing over whom had it first! Then mom came home and yelled" what are you doing"!? Mom takes the object and won't give it back until they get along! Will the sisters ever get along?
A wonderful young girls book about two mermaid sisters who both claim a sparkly shiny human object. They must find a way to put away their anger and find ways to get along. These two young mermaids must work together and decide if they can be friends. Great book for those young kids who are beginning to read chapter books.

so in the story, it tells echo and crystal do not like the other sister. but then echo finds a human item.
then crystal finds it. she said, " I found it first". So they had a fight over who found it first and they did it with pots and pans. So Echo talked to her friends and they said, "why don't you do something nice?"Echo said, "how about we clean Crystal's room together?". So after lunch everyone went to clean Crystal's room. then they were on there last thing. ware should we

What a wonderful book!! My daughters both loved and were so excited that it was an autographed copy. Debbie did a great job on the book and I could not say it any better than "Melanie" and "Daleine". I won my copy on GoodReads and want to thank "Debbie Dadey" for making this great quick read available on GoodReads.
