it was ok
bookshelves: youngadultfiction
Recommended for: 7th - 10th grade

I really wanted this book to work - I love tales of the sea and mermaids, selkies, and whales. I love the cover and wanted the story to be mysterious and beautiful to go with the cover. It wasn't. It came across to me like a mediocre high school creative writing assignment. I found the pen and ink drawing amaturish; it was hard to believe the cover was done by the same artist. Oh well, I'll stick to reading fairy tales about mermaids and selkies.
