Sydney Gao has a secret – she’s a mermaid.
Unfortunately, her mother forbade her from telling anyone and kept Sydney land-locked in the Midwest all her life. After learning Selkie slavers kidnapped her best friend Garrett Weaver, Sydney ran away in hopes of rescuing him. Succeeding, she thought all her dreams of finding others like her to swim with had finally come true.
But Garrett is different now.
No longer the goofy, fun-loving guy she remembered, he’s more concerned about his Selkie friends than Sydney. Worse, her mother is also mad at Sydney for putting herself in danger and not thinking about the consequences of her actions.
Sydney can’t understand any of it. All she’s ever wanted is to finally see and explore the Salt capital city of New Pearlaya and to share her secret with someone.
What Sydney doesn’t know is that the Salt is far from the place where dreams come true…and she isn’t the only one who’s been keeping secrets.

My Review: Sydney is a lovely character who happens to be a mermaid. However, she can’t go wild and enjoy that life the way she wants. She’s locked on land and cant tell her friends about any of it.

Though things are about to change when she must rescue Garrett. She rescued her friend and now is in search for others like her. To share her secret and al be well. Though Garrett has changed, her mom is mad, and what the heck is Sydney to do? Poo girl just wants to be happy, have her dreams come true and live on. But I guess that’s too much to ask for.

There are more secrets that you think, twists and surprises, and well you’ll be sucked right in. It’s another awesome read by Aaron.
