Idea taken from Breaking The Spine
The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K Madigan
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 love books that have anything to do with beaches, swimming and mermaids so I cannot pass this book. Besides, I've already read and loved L.K Madigan's debut book Flash Burnout thus picking up this one is a must. The synopsis makes me feel really curious, is Lena originally a mermaid? Hm...
Have a look into the mirror in Oct 2010 to find out the ultimate secret : )
