Spencer almost drowns in a surfing accident when a sparkling, golden girl saves him with a kiss of life before she suddenly disappears. Where did this dream girl come from, and will she return?

Lilly rescues a boy from nearly drowning and dangerously steps out of her own watery world. Curious to explore this forbidden land, she's gotta find her handsome Earthdude.

A silver heart locket is their only clue.

Ellen Schreiber revamps a classic favorite with a funky magical romance that shows what transpires when boy meets girl, but discovers girl is really a . . .

Publishers Weekly Review

Jun 16, 2003 – Life under the sea has become considerably more hip since the days of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid. In first-novelist Schreiber's updated version, teenage mermaid Waterlilly (Lilly) listens to rock music, wears glittery make-up and frequents the local hangout like most other cold-blooded girls her age. However, unlike the other mermaids, she is not content to date mermen "jocks" from Pacific Reefs High. Instead, she falls for a boy way out of her league, a high school "Earthee" named Spencer, whom she saves from a watery death after a surfboard accident. After the rescue (which ends with a kiss), the story takes familiar turns with Lilly magically sprouting legs and going ashore to seek out the boy of her dreams. When the two reunite, their fondness for each other grows, but Lilly isn't sure if she can give up her fins permanently for the sake of love. As the author alternates between the two lovers' points of view, Lilly, with her adventuresome spirit and rebellious streak, outshines her more mundane Earthdude, and the details of Lilly's ocean life may be the biggest lure to readers. Light on substance but loaded with fun, this revamped romance offers plenty of comical scenes above and below sea level. Ages 9-up.
