Katie O'Sullivan has created a world of mermaids that anyone would love to visit. Her description of the Cape Cod area makes the reader feel like they are there, or have visited it for themselves. I found myself wanting to walk along the beach with Shae every morning.
Shae MacNamara is a well adjusted kid, who just happens to have one heck of a family secret- a secret he doesn't even know about until he has a goof with a trip into the Ocean. Half- merman, well, growing gills would freak out anyone.
Full of fantasy and adventure, partially set in a wonderful spot in the US, this is a great summer read.
I didn't want it to end, and honestly, I wish I had more than five stars to give this one.
