The only thing that terrifies Jade more than the ocean is dancing at the Fall Formal. Because Jade has two left feet—er, flippers. Who knew being a high school freshman is even more awkward than being a plus-size aqua-phobic mer-girl? At least her only drama is of the human variety...
Or not.
The Mermish Council has just declared that all land-dwelling mers but return to the ocean. Pronto. But there's no way Jade is going to let her mom, or Luke, her...boyfriend? mer-guy-friend?, disappear into the deep, dark ocean. Again. After all, a girl's got to have a date to her first dance.
If Jade can stop mer-mageddon, finding a plus-size dress that doesn't look like a shower curtain should be a piece of cake

If you remember back last Summer we had the opportunity to read book two (Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath) of the Real Mermaids Series. I have to say this book was just like the second one, which I loved, but with a new scenario. You're back in Jade's world as she embarks on another yet fun/drama/teenage adventure. Between being a mermaid and trying to find the perfect plus-size dress for the Fall Formal, Jade has her hands full. This story was filled with a great story-line that any young teenage girl would love and relate to in some way. It's a bit different from the vampire books out there and gives you a tale about a mermaid. Filled with drama and different situations that get resolved and not leaving you hanging. 

What I love about this entire Real Mermaids Series is that you can start from any of the books and not get lost. The characters are easily represented and the story-line is easy to follow. Although I'd recommend reading all three so you can see just how far Jade has come from book one to book three.
