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 his near drowning years ago, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.
Yet something keeps drawing Lena to the water . . . an ancient, powerful magic. And one morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman — with a silvery tail.
Now nothing can stop 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 forever." -Goodreads
The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan was a book that at first I couldn't get into but by the time I got to the middle of the book I was hooked!
The character Lena was a character that you could easily connect to. It was fun to be able to go onto the journey that Lean was going on in this book. Unfortunately, Lena wasn't very different from other YA characters. She didn't stand out.
One problem I had with this book was that it was in third person. So at some points I couldn't understand who was doing what, until they talked. Some times the people wouldn't even talk after the sentence so I would be extremely confused on who was doing what.
Other than the third person confusion, this book was FANTASTIC! The story line wasn't like any other, the word choice was phenomenal, and the book just seemed to flow throughout.
The ending did not fit with me well. I like either a cliffhanger or a nice "tie all the ends together" end. This was not one of those endings. Since some of you may have not read this book yet I can't really get into much about the ending.
This book was an easy read so I definitely recommend it. If you like light yet paranormal books this would be a book for you!
I give this book 4 out of 5 diva crowns!
