This sequel immediately follows where Jade's first mermaid adventures left off...
It's summer vacation time! And Jade's stuck at her summer job. While scooping ice cream for her customers, she's trying to come to terms with a lot of things that have happened to her in the last few weeks: first period, first kiss, first mermaid- tail and turning 14!!!
But, most of all, finding out that her mother is still alive!
Now, Jade is trying to figure it all out -
dealing with her dad who won't let her date (Is she really ready to have a boyfriend right now?)
Trying to lead a normal life while trying to keep the biggest secret ever from her BFF! (SO hard!)
AND, most importantly, how to finally get her mother home safely!
Jade's wish is to have her mom home again and she will do anything to make it happen.
But is she prepared for the consequences to her actions???
Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath is a page-turner! Lots of humor and even more memorable moments. The bond of family and friends is heart-warming.
The more I read about Jade and 'her gang', the more I grow to love them all. Each and every character has a major impact to Jade's life and story. The author truly knows how to weave a realistic fantasy!
