Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Fall)
This book is separated into three sections, each narrated by one of three twelve-year-old mermaid friends: Shyanna wants to win the Melody Pageant; Rachel contemplates becoming a human; Cora wants to be on the Spirit Squad. Full-page candy-colored illustrations add appeal, but the generic story lines with predictable dialogue and flat resolutions are tough to wade through.
