About the Book
The sequel to "Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings." Jade begins her summer confused, but she's got even bigger problems: it's been three weeks since Mom returned to the ocean with no news of her whereabouts. Will Mom find the enchanted tidal pool that will allow her to become human?
From the Publisher
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?

"The author keeps suspense high? while tapping straight into young teens' angst about friends, enemies, and boys."- Kirkus
