Just Your Average Teenage Mer-Girl
The only thing that terrifies Jade more than the ocean is dancing at the Fall Formal. Because Jade has two left feet-er, flippers. Who knew being a high school freshman is even more awkward than being a plus-size aqua-phobic mer-girl? At least her only drama is of the human variety. . .
Or not.
The Mermish Council has just declared that all land-dwelling mers but return to the ocean. Pronto. But there's no way Jade is going to let her mom, or Luke, her. . . boyfriend? mer-guy-friend?, disappear into the deep, dark ocean. Again. After all, a girl's got to have a date to her first dance.
If Jade can stop mer-mageddon, finding a plus-size dress that doesn't look like a shower curtain should be a piece of cake.

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