Hailey and Claire have been friends forever. They are heartbroken that they will no longer be together because Claire is moving away when summer ends. The girls spend every day going to the beach club that they've always gone to, trying to make the days last. This isn't easy, as the summer seems to be slipping away faster the more they try to hold onto it. The beach club is falling apart and being torn down, which makes their impending separation seem that much harder. As the end of summer draws closer, a crazy storm hits Cape Cod. When the girls go to the club in the morning, the abandoned pool looks murky and disgusting. But that doesn't stop Hailey from diving right in, and what she sees changes everything. What are the chances of finding a stubborn mermaid under the water? Is she real or a figment of the girls’ imagination? Will they be able to grant the mermaid her one request before she agrees to go back to the ocean? What exactly will happen at the end of the summer? Check out this beachy read to find out!

I read Aquamarine by Alice Hoffman in just one sitting, as it is only about one hundred pages. The story of friendship is one that I think most people will be able to relate to, especially anyone who has ever had to move away from their best friend. I could relate to how scary it can be to have distance in a friendship, and how the girls worry that somebody else might take their place. I like that Claire and Hailey got to have one more fanciful event before they were separated from each other. I have never read a book with a mermaid in it, so this short read was a good way to get my feet wet. I think this book will appeal more to girls than boys based on the friendship between Hailey and Claire and the mermaid aspect, but boys may enjoy it too. Kids between the ages of eight and twelve will enjoy this fast read and long for some time near the ocean! ( )

Hailey and Claire have grown up together, looking forward to the summers they spent together hanging out at the Capri Club. Now the aging club is being torn down to build a bird sanctuary, they watch as it is being torn down. All that remains is the snack shack, run by Raymond, a friend of the girls. One day Hailey jumps into the murky waters of the dirty pond and she sees a mermaid named.....Aquamarine. The girls want to save her, and Raymond is fond of her. Life is looking good for Aquamarine.
This is a sweet and heart -warming story, written for middle grade students. I found it charming and a very good quick read. ( )

I flew through this in less than an hour, and really loved it. It captures that heartbreaking sense of loss that comes when a close friend moves away. It’s written for younger readers, but I found it spoke to me as an adult too. I think it’s less a story about finding a mermaid, and more about honouring the magic of friendship. ( )

Best friends Hailey and Claire are spending their last summer together before Claire moves to Florida with her grandparents. The Capri Beach Club has been the scene of so many memories for the girls, but this summer is especially bittersweet for them. Then, the morning after an awful storm, Hailey and Claire discover something unusual in the murky water at the bottom of the pool. There in the depths is a mysterious creature with a sharp tongue and a broken heart: a mermaid named Aquamarine has been separated from her sisters, swept away by the force of the storm.

Trapped in the deep end of the pool, Aquamarine is not only suffering from a severe case of homesickness, she is also experiencing the pangs of first love - for a totally inappropriate creature - a human teenage boy. Now, as this mythological yet very real being starts to fade in the burning August sun, the mermaid's fate rests with Hailey and Claire.

Just on the edge of growing up, during a summer that is the hottest on record, Claire and Hailey are discovering that life can take an unpredictable course, best friends are forever, and magic can often be found in the unlikeliest places. In Aquamarine, best-selling author Alice Hoffman weaves a luminous tale of nostalgia and enchantment, perfect for readers both young and old.

I've had this book on my TBR pile for almost three years. Despite waiting for such a long time to read the book, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was certainly intriguing and while definitely written for children, I found the characters well-developed and extremely likable. I give this book an A! ( )

A cute little story about 2 12-year-old friends finding a mermaid in a delapidated swimming pool after a big storm. The book synopsis says it all. More of a short story. ( )
