Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lena has lived her whole life near the beach - walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves - the problem is, shes spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.

But her father - a former surfer himself - refuses to allow her to take lessons. After a near drowning in his past, he cant bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.  

Yet something lures Lena to the water … an ancient, powerful magic. One morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman - with a silvery tail.

Nothing will keep Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And soon … what she sees in the mermaids mirror will change her life …

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2010 William C. Morris Award!
 
Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend whos a girl. One of them loves him; the other one needs him.
 
When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissas long-lost meth addicted mom. Blakes participation in the ensuing drama opens up a world of trouble, both for him and for Marissa. He spends the next few months trying to reconcile the conflicting roles of Boyfriend and Friend. His experiences range from the comic (surviving his dads birth control talk) to the tragic (a harrowing after-hours visit to the morgue).
 
In a tangle of life and death, love and loyalty, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of himself.

Synopsis:

A message. A key. A mirror. A secret world unlocked. Lena has lived her whole life near the beach, walking the shore, breathing the salty air,swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves.

One day, she finally catches sight of it: a beautiful woman, with a silvery tail. Now nothing can stop Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerouswaves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And what Lena sees in the mermaids mirror will change her life forever.
