The Mermaid’s Sister: What a rich, immersive world. I loved following these characters through an unexpected and twisty tale of sibling affection and learning that there are some things you just can’t change.
The Mermaid’s Sister is a YA fantasy that really goes a long way to set itself apart from other books of its kind. From he storybook/fairytale tone to the complicated relationships between the characters, Carrie Anne Noble gives our heroine an impossibly difficult task and sets her out into a harsh world where she must grow up and accept the things she cannot change in order to save the people she loves.
I heartily recommend this book.
Read The Mermaid’s Sister if you’re a YA fantasy fan who’s looking for a unique tale that takes the best twists of the Brothers Grimm and improves on them.
Do not read The Mermaid’s Sister if you have no love for the fairytales you heard as a child, or if you’re looking for something formulaic. Bittersweet is the word that stands out here.
