Sassy and sweet but with a twist of suspense, this funny teen mermaid story features a heroine you just have to love! Thirteen-year-old Jade has her world turned upside down when she turns into a mermaid during a bath. If Jade hadn't been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bath after a stressful day of shopping and come out with scales? Soon Jade discovers she's inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But how is that possible? Jade's mother drowned last year — or so she was told. Now she's not so sure, but she's determined to find out what really happened, and whether her mother is dead or alive. So how does a plus-size, water-phobic mer-girl go about doing that, exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend — or her crush? After her father tells her that her mother was a mermaid, Jade discovers that her mother is still alive and is being kept prisoner by two criminal mer-people.
