Review: Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau

7767952First zit. First crush. First…mermaid’s tail?

If she hadn’t been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?

Most. Embarassing. Moment. Ever.

Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But this revelation raises a serious question: if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?

Jade is determined to find out. But how does a plus-sized, aqua-phobic, mer-girl go about doing that, exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend Cori, and her crush, Luke?

This summer is about to get a lot more interesting…

Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau is a charming and entertaining book about a young girl named Jade that discovers she is a mermaid. The story is adorable. Jade had to cope with many changes by herself since her mother drowned the year before. The major one being sprouting a tale after falling asleep in the bath tub.

This book has many great lessons for tween to early teenage girls. Jade learns to cope and make decisions on her own. I love how positive Jade was with her weight and how she learned to accept herself. She was a refreshing main character. There is not much depth to the story, but that is what makes it fun and cute! Perfect read for a young girl.

Rating: 3.5/5
