So far, I like this one out of the series. This one has some depth to it.

My personal favorite fairy tale is "The Little Mermaid," so I was thrilled when Sarah Mlynowski wrote a book focused around it. Abby and Jonah are back at it again with the magic mirror and the desire to change the ending of the original. This was a really great story. There was loads of tension. It didn’t seem like they were going to get a happy ending for the mermaid, so the last few chapters had a lot of drama. There were also parts that made me smile and laugh out loud. I loved the whole mustard theme of the kingdom, and Prince Mortimer was a FANTASTIC unlikable Prince. Overall, it is another must-read from the Whatever After series.

"Oh! It's a tail! Which can only mean one thing. "She's a mermaid," We're in the little mermaid'! "
