I haven't read the first five books but I do plan to at some point. This is the story of a girl named Emily who goes on a school trip to an island. The school for merpeople is also there and hello Emily is half mermaid. I was really in the mood for a cute mermaid story and this worked beautifully.
Emily and her boyfriend notice a ship that others don't seem to see. After a little digging around they find out about this ship that is trapped and Emily is the only one that could potentially save all the people. It is a adorable story that even has a little romance. This was the first time I read a book by Liz and it won't be the last. Sometimes I'm just in the mood for something really cute.
