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. Sigh. 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?
