Description

It's hard being a pre-teen girl; it's even harder when you find out you're a mermaid!

This is a fast-paced coming-of-age comedy novel that has adventure, mystery, and a touch of romance by H��l��ne Boudreau, nominated for a Canadian children's choice award for her middle grade novel ACADIAN STAR.

If she hadn't been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?

Most. Embarrassing. Moment. Ever.

Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?

Jade is determined to find out. So how does a plus-size, aqua-phobic mer-girl go about doing that exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend, Cori, and to her crush, Luke?

This summer is about to get a lot more interesting...
