The Tail of Emily Windsnap | [Liz Kessler]

The Tail of Emily Windsnap

For as long as she can remember, 12-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long, her mother has seemed anxious to keep Emily away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery about her own identity, about the mysterious father she's never met, and about the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water's surface.

Publisher's Summary

For as long as she can remember, 12-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long, her mother has seemed anxious to keep Emily away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery about her own identity, about the mysterious father she's never met, and about the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water's surface.

With a sure sense of suspense and richly imaginative details, first-time author Liz Kessler lures us into a glorious world where mermaids study shipwrecks at school and Neptune rules with an iron trident; it's an enchanting fantasy about family secrets, loyal friendship, and the convention-defying power of love.

    I love Urban Fantasy, Paranormal romance and dystopian novels. I almost always have either a book in my hands, or an audiobook in my ear!

    "Adorable"

    Very cute book. Emily is a lovable character, and it is a great children's book. I loved the narrator as well.

    "Wonderful book!"

    I really loved listening to this book! It really was very impressive. It is about a normal girl who wants to take swimming lessons and turns in to a mermaid. You get an awesome beginning and a wonderful middle and a great ending. I think that the narator did an excilent job narating it. If I could, I would thank her for bringing out the story and characters. 10 on this book!
