Normal is Never Coming Back
Jade is totally confused. As in, will this be a leg-day or a tail-day?" kind of confused. Even worse, it's been forever since her first kiss with Luke and now-nothing. Not even a text message.
But Jade doesn't have time to figure out the weirdness of boys and how to use her shiny new tail. (Seriously, being a mermaid should come with a handbook.) She has to come up with a plan to get her missing mermaid mom back on dry land.
The only problem is. . . Jade is afraid of the ocean. But even aqua-phobic mer-girls have to take the plunge sometime. . .
Praise for Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings:
"Bravo to Helene Boudreau for hitting the bull's-eye with a fresh, affectionate, watery twist on the classic coming-of-age-story."-New York Journal of Books
"The author keeps suspense high. . . while tapping straight into young teens' angst about friends, enemies, and boys."-Kirkus
HELANE BOUDREAU believes mermaids are just as plausible as giant squids, flying fish or electric eels. She now writes fiction and non-fiction for kids from her land-locked home in Ontario, Canada. Her first book of this series, Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings, was a 2011 SCBWI Crystal Kite Award finalist.
