Horn Book Review

In her third romp, Poppy, the daughter of paranormal investigators, is still incredulous of her parents' beliefs, despite her previous experiences. Poppy befriends stubborn mermaid-turned-human Nerissa and then must save her own sister, who's made the opposite transformation. Young fantasy fans transitioning into intermediate novels will find this to be a pleasing, accessible story, but the character interactions are rather flimsy. (c) Copyright 2013.
