This book follows Miranda, a young mermaid who's against commercial whaling. She's given a chance to make a difference in the human world and jumps at it.
This novella was cute. I liked the way it flowed storyline wise.. However, there is one thing I wanted to bring to the author's attention. Macaws can in fact talk if they're taught to. Just like they can imitate the sounds of phones, televisions, etc. They are highly intelligent birds.
The story put me in mind of a cross between The Little Mermaid (The Original not the Disney version), and the 80's movie Splash (one of my favorites).
I think readers will not only like the storyline itself, but the underlying topic of commercial whaling, though I wish the book had been longer to go into a bit more background on the topic since it's supposed to be the main focus of the story.
I would recommend this book to mermaid lovers everywhere, as well as to lovers of the romance genre.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws.
