Title: The Tail of Emily Windsnap (Book 1) Author: Liz Kessler
Recommended for: Grades 3rd-5th AR: 3.8 Lexile: 540
For as long as she can remember, twelve-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a house boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long, her mother has seemed anxious to keep her away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery – about her own identity, the mysterious father she’s never met, and the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water’s surface.
I read the whole series in third grade and loved it so I decided to read it again. Never gets old!
Thoughts (for when you’re done reading, contains spoilers)
I really enjoyed this book. Though I kind of knew what was going to happen because I had already read it and the book was really predictable in general (the readers always know more than the heroine) it was good just the same.
My favorite character was Shona. I like Shona the best because of how loyal and kind she is to Emily. Even when she couldn’t go through the Great Mermen Reef to find Jake she still tried. I’m glad that Neptune allowed Emily, her family, and Shona live on the island instead of being locked into the prison–but I guess Liz Kessler had to do that–no kid likes a sad ending, especially when it comes to mermaids.
My favorite part was when we met Shona! She was so kind and I immeadiately knew that she and Emily would have wonderful adventures together!
