click meHow did I get the book?  I bought it.

Genre: Fantasy

First Impression: Cuteness.

Synopsis: First zit. First crush. First…mermaid’s tail?
If she hadn’t been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?
Most. Embarrassing. Moment. Ever.
Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But this revelation raises a serious question: if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?
Jade is determined to find out. But how does a plus-sized, aqua-phobic, mer-girl go about doing that, exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend Cori, and her crush, Luke?
This summer is about to get a lot more interesting…

200words (or less) review: This book is so cute, fun and laugh out loud funny! Jade is an instantly likable character who is funny, slightly klutzy and brave.

Getting home from a very embarrassing day at the mall, Jade takes a soak in the bathtub but when it comes to getting out she has a tail instead of legs. Cue a lot of family secrets coming being spilled. (Bad pun intended)

Apart from Jade’s narration, which will make you giggle, Real Mermaids Don’t Wear Toe Rings has grownups behaving like adults! Jade’s dad is a little on the eccentric side but he cares a lot about his daughter and is trying to make things work. I really liked him. I liked all the other characters as well, even the annoying ones like Lainey.

Real Mermaids Don’t Wear Toe Rings is the perfect book to make you smile!
