Cute love story between a rebellious teen mermaid and a hopelessly romantic human teen boy. They narrate alternating chapters.

Lilly rescues Spencer when he falls off his surfboard and nearly drowns. During the rescue, he grabs the necklace she is wearing. Since it is an heirloom that belongs to her mother that Lilly is not supposed to be wearing, she is desperate to get it back. Thanks to a potion from the sea witch, Lilly spends a glorious day with Spencer, but is having such a great time that she returns to the ocean without the necklace.

Crazy in love, Lilly is soon back in the sketchy part of the ocean getting more potion from the sea witch. Luckily, the sea witch sympathizes with Lilly, as she once loved a human too.

Sophisticated readers will see the end coming from miles away, but younger teens will relate to the strong emotions and Lilly and Spencer get swept away on a wave of love at first sight.
