Review: Air, sea, and love are the words to describe The Mermaid's Mirror written by L.K. Madigan. It is a story of a girl named Lena's search for her true self. On Lena's journey in the sea she meets some really interesting people making for an exciting adventure.
At the beginning of the story, Lena doesn't know anything about her past, but one day Lena is saved by a mermaid named Lucy while surfing. Along the way, Lucy gives Lena a mysterious key. Throughout the time Lena spends with Lucy, she goes on some crazy adventures, finds true love in a boy named Nix, and makes some promises to the people under the sea. It is crucial that Selena keeps those promises or bad things will happen to her family on the land. In The Mermaid's Mirror, Lena uncovers the truth about her past, and learns more about her place in the world.
I am astonished by The Mermaid's Mirror. L.K. Madigan wrote the events in a nice flow which made it more thrilling and adventuresome as it the story went along. If you like drama and adventure, then I think this is almost the perfect book for you. If you love reading about romances and broken hearts then put The Mermaid's Mirror at the top of your list. I even cried at the end. I highly recommend The Mermaid's Mirror. I loved it so much that I didn't want to stop reading it, and I wanted it to go on forever.
