Electra is a human mermaid - that is, a mermaid with legs instead of a tail. Abandoned as a tiny baby, she was found and adopted by the merpeople of Mermaid Island, who gave her sea-powder so that she could live and breathe underwater. Now aged nine, Electra's desire for adventure is always getting her and her dolphin friend, Splash, into trouble!
Lucy stole her friend Rose's 'happily ever after' because she wanted Rose's husband and Lucy always gets what she wants. Big mistake. Rose was the ideal wife and is the ideal mother; Lucy was the perfect mistress. Rose doesn't have the vocabulary to describe Lucy. A devoted single mum, she fills her life with labeling school uniforms, organic vegetables, and car runs for extracurricular activities.
