Brynn Finley is the only mermaid in the sixth grade who hasn't been able to learn mer-magic. Without it, she can't be a guardian of the sea with her parents and friends. On her quest for answers, Brynn encounters a loveable sea turtle, a pair of selkie sisters, and Phaedra, the great and terrible sea witch. Soon Brynn is over her head in trouble, and she must learn to ask for help if she's going to follow the merfolk oath to be a protector of the ocean and a guardian of the sea.

★★★★★  "This book excels when dealing with friendships at the middle school level. In addition to navigating the hardships of being a pre-teen, the book also delivers a good message about keeping the ocean clean." -Amazon Reviewer

★★★★★  "An adventurous story that shows the importance of asking for help from those who love you. Great story for tweens." -Amazon Reviewer
