* the way they propel themselves through the waterI loved The Little Mermaid when I was a child (the original, not a Disney or any other sanitised version) and have ever since been interested in mermaid fiction. This one sits up there with the best of them - it's sassy, contemporary, unique, and has a quest as its foundation. Fabulous stuff!
* the mythology that shapes their world and has people (mermaids, rather) undertaking their pre-ordained parts within The Story
* the deliciously wicked villain
* a fabulous seagoat - Lumpy Custard - that speaks in some kind of ancient language (translated of course for we the uneducated readers, but not losing its unusual (for us) turn of phrase - because we all know that different languages express themselves very differently. Translation isn't simply exchanging one word for another)
* hair - she's not named Ringlet just for fun, and watch out for Chignon
* the spelling starfish
* and the jellyfish.
