Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings (book 1)

 

Freak of nature takes on a whole new meaning…

 

If she hadn’t been so clueless, she might have seen it coming. But really, who expects to get into a relaxing bathtub after a stressful day of shopping for tankinis and come out with scales and a tail?

 

Most. Embarrassing. Moment. Ever.

 

Jade soon discovers she inherited her mermaid tendencies from her mom. But if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?

 

Jade is determined to find out. So how does a plus-size, aqua-phobic mer-girl go about doing that exactly? And how will Jade ever be able to explain her secret to her best friend, Cori, and to her crush, Luke?

 

This summer is about to get a lot more interesting…

 

Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath (book 2)

 

Normal is never coming back…

 

Jade is totally confused. As in, “will this be a leg-day or a tail-day?” kind of confused. Even worse, it’s been forever since her first kiss with Luke and now—nothing. Not even a text message.

 

Sigh.

 

But Jade doesn’t have time to figure out the weirdness of boys and how to use her shiny new tail. (Seriously, being a mermaid should come with a handbook.) She has to come up with a plan to get her missing mermaid mom back on dry land.

 

The only problem is…Jade is afraid of the ocean. But even aqua-phobic mer-girls have to take the plunge sometime…

 

 

Real Mermaids Don't Need High Heels (book 3)

 

Just Your Average Teenage Mer-Girl

 

The only thing that terrifies Jade more than the ocean is dancing at the Fall Formal. Because Jade has two left feet—er, flippers. Who knew being a high school freshman is even more awkward than being a plus-size aqua-phobic mer-girl? At least her only drama is of the human variety…

 

Or not.

 

The Mermish Council has just declared that all land-dwelling mers but return to the ocean. Pronto. But there’s no way Jade is going to let her mom, or Luke, her…boyfriend? mer-guy-friend?, disappear into the deep, dark ocean. Again. After all, a girl’s got to have a date to her first dance.

 

If Jade can stop mer-mageddon, finding a plus-size dress that doesn’t look like a shower curtain should be a piece of cake

 

 

Real Mermaids Don't Sell Sea Shells (book 4)

 

Sun, surf and tropical breezes are no ‘day at the beach’ because being a teenage mermaid never takes a vacation.

 

Jade can’t think of a better way to celebrate her newly reunited family than with a tropical wedding in the Bahamas with Mom and Dad to finally make their family ‘official’.

 

Soon, Jade is enjoying the tropical sunshine, all-you-can-eat buffet, and island day trips. But when Jade witnesses a person getting thrown overboard as a cruise ship enters the harbor, things go from sunny to sinister.

 

With no body, no leads, and no other witnesses, though, the local police don’t seem too concerned. Maybe Jade’s imagination has been acting up on her, just like Cori said.

 

But with Mom and Dad off on a honeymoon excursion it wouldn’t hurt to check things out, would it?
