Winter Extravaganza: Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings Giveaway


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

SUMMARY: Freak of nature takes on a whole new meaning... 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? Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown? Jade is determined to find out. So how does a plus-size, 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 to her crush, Luke? This summer is about to get a lot more interesting... (Published on December 1, 2010.)
