This was an engaging audiobook. The author does a good job of tapping into the emotional reality of a 14 y.o. in extraordinary circumstances. Especially nice was the full suite of well-rounded characters and the subtle and logically consistent mermaid world-building. The two main drawbacks are the seemingly endless section right at the beginning about her getting her first period (yawn) and the young-sounding voice of the narrator, which can be a bit grating at times until you get used to it. No great work of literature, but strongly recommended for fans of YA chicklit with a touch of fantasy.
