about

Lia Nautilus may be a Mermaid but she’s never lived in the ocean. War has ravaged the seven seas ever since the infamous Little Mermaid unleashed a curse that stripped Mer of their immortality. Lia has grown up in a secret community of land-dwelling Mer hidden among Malibu’s seaside mansions. Her biggest problems are surviving P.E. and keeping her feelings for Clay Ericson in check. Sure, he’s gorgeous in that cocky, leather jacket sort of way and makes her feel like there’s a school of fish swimming in her stomach, but getting involved with a human could put Lia's entire community at risk. So it’s for the best that he’s dating that new girl, right? That is, until Lia finds out she isn't the only one at school keeping a potentially deadly secret. And this new girl? Her eyes are dead set on Clay, who doesn't realize the danger he's in. If Lia hopes to save him, she’ll have to get closer to Clay. Lia’s parents would totally flip if they found out she was falling for a human boy, but the more time she spends with him, the harder it is for her to deny her feelings. After making a horrible mistake, Lia will risk everything to stop Clay from falling in love with the wrong girl.
Tobie Easton is a private writing instructor and a host for tween and teen book clubs. She lives in Los Angeles, California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great start for new author and series ►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►► NOTE: I was given a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review. ►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►► Emerge is the first book of the Mer Chronicles by Tobie Easton I've read very few books about Mer Folk, so I was drawn in by the description, so I requested the book from Library's Things' Early Reader program and was awarded one of the books. If nothing else it would be something different. I was drawn into the story from the start, and loved it. It held my interest throughout the book (best part of the story and had to go to sleep, ugh!). About the only spoiler I will give is the Little Mermaid is mentioned (and it's not the story we all know, Disney got it wrong, oops). The writing flows and there's not too much of anything here, not too many descriptions, there's no glaring spelling or grammar problems. The characters were believable and real. There's a character, either main or background, that everyone will find to relate to. You'll laugh and along with Lia ... I did. And you're struggle along with her as she makes decisions, for good or bad, for the one she loves (that's a safe spoiler, it's on the cover). Things are not always black and white in life, nor are they in the story. I think the struggle is partly why it was so good, you could put yourself in Lia's place. Cry and laugh, I know I did. I'm in my 50s and enjoy reading the YA books. This book I think is okay for any age to read, a bit of kissing in the book, but nothing out of line. It'll be interesting to see where the series goes from where Emerge ends ... and can't wait for book two to come out.
