FTC guidelines require me to disclose that I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an unbiased review. All review comments are honest and my own.
I absolutely love the concept of professional mermaids. I could never do it, personally. Having my legs squeezed into that fin and breathing through a hose doesn't sound even remotely appealing. That just makes the whole story just that much more incredible! It's a whole world I know very little about, and I was excited to learn more. I hope to see some mermaids in person one day!
If you were a fan of The Little Mermaid growing up (or hey, if you're still a fan... no judging) then this will be a nice reminder for you. There are quite a few similarities between the book and Disney movie, and also some really unique differences. The sea witch isn't quite so evil as Ursula, and I have a feeling that she has a very interesting back story, which I would love to hear. There will be a spin off novella with the upcoming Witching Hour Collection. I'm really curious to see if that story will touch back with these characters.
Tara Porter has deferred college for a year to work as an aquarium/water-park mermaid performer, complete with a form-fitting swimmable silicone tail. She and her troupe—employed by the gruff but gentle ex-commercial-fisherman “Neptune”—are touring various aquariums, and the story begins during their stop in Houston. She’s doing a meet-and-greet with aquarium visitors, mostly young kids asking the cute kind of questions young kids ask, and then she and her troupe perform with some dolphins.
All her life, Tara wanted to be a mermaid. Her father, who has sadly passed away, encouraged such flights of fancy. Her mother, not so much; she’s not thrilled by Tara’s decisions to study marine biology and not to start doing so until after a full year off. So Tara gets to act out her dream in the mermaid show until an accident renders her unconscious in the ocean where she meets a pair of real mermaids! One is the hunky merman Finn (insta-attraction doesn’t bother me as much as other readers); the other is the eccentric but kind sea-witch Nereia, who does something magical.
Tara is gradually turning into a mermaid.Read more ›
How to be a Mermaid is Erin Hayes bet book yet. I'll admit I'm a little obsessed with Tara and Finn. Tara is a realistic new young adult. She's discovering herself and her place in the world like everyone does at that age. Finn is just swoon worthy. The world building, and underwater adventures in this book are just awesome!!! I love the quirkiness of it.
Seriously if you're looking for a fun, quick read that keeps you turning pages then pick up How to be Mermaid. I enjoyed it a lot!
