Gr. 6-8. The familiar story of the earth-bound mortal falling for a mermaid is given a modern makeover. Lilly is a teenage mermaid who saves 15-year-old Spencer after he slides off his surfboard and nearly drowns in the sea. From then on, Lilly and Spencer tell their stories in alternating chapters. An underwater kiss leads both Spencer and Lilly to believe they have found their soul mate, with Lilly taking the initiative in the relationship, using a potion to sprout legs and go to high school. The humorous conceit here is that California's youth culture extends outward onto the continental shelf: Lilly is a bored, rebellious teenager who just happens to have a tail fin and gill slits. The novel ends with a dramatic scene of Spencer saving Lilly with a kiss of his own, forever changing his life, as fireworks explode overhead. A sharp, funny novel that includes a super-sized serving of over-the-top romance. Todd Morning
