The only thing that terrifies Jade more than the ocean is dancing at the Fall Formal. Because Jade has two left feet—er, flippers. Who knew being a high school freshman is even more awkward than being a plus-size aqua-phobic mer-girl? At least her only drama is of the human variety...

Or not.

The Mermish Council has just declared that all land-dwelling mers but return to the ocean. Pronto. But there's no way Jade is going to let her mom, or Luke, her...boyfriend? mer-guy-friend?, disappear into the deep, dark ocean. Again. After all, a girl's got to have a date to her first dance.

If Jade can stop mer-mageddon, finding a plus-size dress that doesn't look like a shower curtain should be a piece of cake.

I love how this series continues without pause! In the third installment to the Real Mermaids Series, there is more action, more humor and more love! Helen Boudreau has a true gift in creating a world where mermaids really do exist...

Jade is still trying to be a normal teen girl trying to find her way, this time, through high school.
But the Mermish Council's interference is making it difficult for her to keep her two feet on on the ground, literally...
But nothing ever gets in Jades way! She is the most determined and caring girl I have ever came across in literature - she is strong minded, creative and extremely smart when put in a bind. Jade is not your average mer-girl, since she was born human, she is the only one who can transform within minutes, making her very special and giving her the advantage in spur of the moment problems and plans.
Her take-charge attitude is endearing and proves just how much she cares about everyone.

What I love most about this series is its main focus on how important family and friends are. Sticking up for one another, caring and protecting each other. Also, the way that Jade strives in girl-power, taking charge and believing in yourself. All very important messages for our young woman, teens and tweens.

The blossoming girlfriend/boyfriend relationship between Jade and Luke is adorable - it's the way a relationship should be at the age of 14 and 15. They are completely smitten with each other, but respectful and sweet.

Full of action and humor, I highly recommend this to all girls who believe in mermaids...
and even those who don't! Helen Boudreau will make a believer out of you!
