    "Mermaids on Parade is a pretty good mermaid book and with this category being somewhat limited, it is a good option. The setting is one that many kids will enjoy even if this won't necessarily be considered a classic."

    "The suggestion for the book named Sukey and the Mermaid from my search of the best books about mermaids is marginal. While the book has an overall good rating there are only 15 reviews. The price point and purchasing options are a redeeming factor but I would unlikely purchase this item for this suggestion."

    "While this is a good book and got a lot of reviews, it's not the best book about mermaids. I think that mermaids could easily be replaced with any other mythical creature. A better book would be more about the mermaid and their culture and lore."

    "This book caught my interest from the first paragraph!! Fred is not your typical mermaid. She is a little rude, sarcastic, she definitely doesn't sing and she is laugh out loud funny. She works at an aquarium and swims in salt water pools because she hates seaweed. This was a fun, quick story. A little too quick for me. The solving of the mystery at the end was a little rushed and silly, but other than that I really enjoyed it. "

    "When I first began to read this book I didn't think I'd care for it although I immediately liked the style of writing. It was the main character, Vanessa or Nessa, as she is called that, was a bit unbelievable. Nessa is afraid of literally everything...she relies on her older sister Justine to help her navigate the world around her so when her sister dies unexpectedly I wasn't sure what course the story would take. I was pleasantly surprised by the turn around made by the main character, rather than withering away without her big sister, Vanessa along with her dead sister's boyfriends brother (I know, it's a lot) end up investigating Justine's death & his brother's disappearance. There is (of course) a romance that predictably springs up between Nessa & Simon. There were some very obvious parts of this book but all in all, it was a fairly good read with a very original plot. I enjoyed it quite a bit."

    "I have been trying to get my 8th grader more into reading and less into playing apps on her phone. After many different purchases of various genres, my daughter enjoyed this book. It is definitely one of the Young Adult books and not one that I would sometimes enjoy, but well worth the money to have my daughter read a 300+ page book and then ask for the next in the series."
