Midnight Pearls

Midnight Pearls By: Debbie Viguie

Pearl has known her entire life that she is different. Finneas found her in the water when she was little during a terrible storm. Mary and Finneas raised her as their own, but the other people in their village treated her differently because of how she looks. Her only friend, Prince James, and her spend time together talking, but when they both realize that they are going to have to marry soon, things change. James takes Pearl out on a boat, and there is an accident.  Kale and Faye save them, reveal themselves and Pearl realizes that she has known all along that she belonged somewhere else.

This was a twist on the classic story of "The Little Mermaid".  Instead of the mermaid being the fist one you meet, we meet Pearl first who has no idea that she is a mermaid.  I was a little disappointed in this story because I felt it didn't end the way I wanted it to. Definitely a great read for teens.

I borrowed this from the public library
