The Tale of Emily Windsnap
Hola. The Tale of Emily Windsnap, by Liz Kessler. I have already done one of the books that are later in the series, but you have to have a beginning. Emily Windsnap, a seventh-grader who lives on a house-boat but can't swim. When she starts taking swimming lessons at her school, the truth comes out, she is a mermaid. Well, not all of the time, while on land she has legs, but when in the water....... she has a tail. With this realization, many questions arise, such as, why did her dad, (a mer-man,) leave? As the world of the mer-people becomes clearer, so their problems. Even with a simple, straightforward voice telling the story, it is very entertaining. Three and a half stars.
