Wish List Wednesday - The Magic of Water

The Mermaid’s Mirror

Written by: L.K. Madigan

Released: October 4, 2010 by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

Summary: Lena has lived her whole life near the beach – walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves – the problem is, she’s spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.

But her father – a former surfer himself – refuses to allow her to take lessons. After a near drowning in his past, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.

Yet something lures Lena to the water … an ancient, powerful magic. One morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman – with a silvery tail.

Nothing will keep Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And soon … what she sees in the mermaid’s mirror will change her life …

I found this book through Goodreads and it really interested me. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but the summary really sounds interesting. Plus, I really like mermaids and the theology and mythology behind them is always interesting.

I’ll definitely be looking out for this on in stores and in the library!
