Summary
On the night of the blue moon when mermaids are said to gather on a sandbar in the Gulf of Mexico, ten-year-old Keeper sets out in a small boat, with her dog BD and a seagull named Captain, determined to find her mother, a mermaid, as Keeper has always believed, who left long ago to return to the sea
Summary
Ten-year-old Keeper lives a happy, simple life on the Gulf Coast of Texas with patient and loving Signe, her guardian. But Keeper is afraid that she's ruined everything, and she needs to find her mom -- who Keeper truly believes is a mermaid -- in order to make things right. Giving away too many details would ruin this moving and magical story of family, love, secrets, and taking chances...this book will hold you spellbound. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
