I LOVED this book. Such amazing characters. Magical, scary, lovely! I don't ever give five stars but I actually am wanting to change this to five, so let's say 4.5! Please write more soon! :) ( )
The author presents us with a pinch of German fairy tale style and a dash of young lady's manners and proper behavior of the 19th century. Clara is the opposite of Maren. One is introvert and lacks the courage the other is spontaneous and adventurer.
Clara accepts the hard task to return her beloved sister to the ocean, now that she's turning into a mermaid. First she has a hard time to accept that she must let her sister go. There are characters in the book that might change this fate if they wanted to, but that's not the point.
This is Clara's journey and coming of age task.
No one can do this but her, because this is her journey to discover who she is, to accept it, to find love and to become who she's meant to be, contrary to her sister Maren who already knows exactly who she is and where she belongs.
The book had a great start. It was light and I enjoyed reading it.
I'm very critical with endings. It started to crumble when the "King" falls ill. I felt the ending needed more work. Somehow the way the author managed the end of the evil characters was a bit silly, even forced in some parts. It was a bit disappointing that it was too predictable, but I wouldn't say it was a waste of time.
The mission was accomplished and her wishes come true.
I was expecting a thrilling adventure. I got a sappy love story.
This was a good story, slightly reminiscent of Lemony Snicket in terms of the journey undertaken and themes of siblings, and with fantasy and love themes that aren’t to ‘squirmy’ or scary for a teen.

Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Winner for Young Adult Fiction, 2014Realm Award Winner for Best Speculative Fiction of the Year, 2016 There is no cure for being who you truly are.... In a cottage high atop Llanfair Mountain, sixteen-year-old Clara lives with her sister, Maren, and guardian Auntie. By day, they gather herbs for Auntie's healing potions. By night, Auntie spins tales of faraway lands and wicked fairies. Clara's favorite story tells of three orphan infants--Clara, who was brought to Auntie by a stork; Maren, who arrived in a seashell; and their best friend, O'Neill, who was found beneath an apple tree. One day, Clara discovers shimmering scales just beneath her sister's skin. She realizes that Maren is becoming a mermaid--and knows that no mermaid can survive on land. Desperate to save her, Clara and O'Neill place the mermaid-girl in their gypsy wagon and set out for the sea. But no road is straight, and the trio encounters trouble around every bend. Ensnared by an evil troupe of traveling performers, Clara and O'Neill must find a way to save themselves and the ever-weakening mermaid. And always, in the back of her mind, Clara wonders, if my sister is a mermaid, then what am I?
