Publisher's Summary

It's Maddy's turn to have a bayou summer. At first she misses life back home in the city, but soon she grows to love everything about her new surroundings - the glimmering fireflies, the glorious landscape, and something else, deep within the water, that only Maddy sees.

Could it be a mermaid? As her grandmother shares wisdom about sayings and signs, Maddy realizes she may be only the sibling to carry on her family's magical legacy. And when a disastrous oil leak threatens the bayou, she knows she may also be the only one who can help. Does she have what it takes to be a hero?

A coming-of-age tale rich with folk magic, set in the wake of the Gulf oil spill, Bayou Magic celebrates hope, friendship, and family, and captures the wonder of life in the Deep South.

Beautiful Tale

The themes in this book aren't necessarily Middle Grade, but Jewell Parker Rhodes does an amazing job keeping this book at a Middle Grade level. But, as an adult, I very much enjoyed listening to the story as well. The characters are so vibrant and full of life that it's easy to follow them into the Bayou.
