What a perfect little pair of stories to read during what is turning out to be an increasingly nostalgic and smokin’ hot end of summer! I was so enamoured that I devoured both in less than a day, not only because the format of the book was easy to read, but because I wanted to know how the stories turned out and couldn’t put them down!

“Aquamarine” tells the story of the very last days of summer for BFFs Hailey and Claire, as they are caught up in their last summer together before one of them moves to Florida and their summer haunt (the Capri Beach Club) shuts down for good. After a major storm rips through the town the girls discover a mermaid (named Aquamarine) trapped in the Capri’s swimming pool, and while vowing to save her have one last adventure together. Aquamarine may be the titular character of the story and the catalyst of the story’s conflict, but for me the major themes are centred around that summertime feeling, endless friendship, and the memories we make and endlessly look back on. Having that peak nostalgia epitomized in my summertime lakeside haunts (Sorrento Centre and Cottonwoods RV Resort), it was impossible not to fall in love with this story.

The second story (“Indigo”) tells a different type of water story, centring more closely on the denizens of the watery depths and their interactions with humanity. The story is told from the point of view of Martha, a young girl who is best friends with two brothers who are deemed to be a bit weird in their landlocked and superdry hometown of Oak Grove - Trevor and Eli, aptly nicknamed Trout and Eel after some “fishy” characteristics. Martha, of course, doesn’t care one jot about how weird the boys seem, they’re her best friends and she can’t wait to escape the dreary life of Oak Grove to explore the wider world. We know from the outset that the brothers are not quite human, but Hoffman keeps us guessing until the final scenes to reveal that they are half-mermaid, and were rescued by their adoptive parents after a boating accident which killed their mother. How the story concludes doesn’t really matter so much as the feeling of magic and discovery throughout, and that Hoffman’s themes about acceptance and finding strengths in quirks send a strong message.

Great book for young readers. It is a lyrical tale on friendship, mermaids and young love. ( )

Two novels?!? Two short stories, aimed at sentimental 9-13 yr-old girls, is more like it. And at that, the last few 'chapters' of each were unnecessary - if they'd been truncated at the point at which a reader would 'get it' they'd've been better. ( )

Aquamarine
I really liked this novel because it tells an original story about friedship and relationships. I was rading it very ethusiastic and enertained because this story has a mermaind on it, and that is an important point for making a story interesting in addition it tells a stirring story, in the way that the 2 friends try to help her new mythical friend and in the way they end the story.

Indigo

I also liked this novel because of the way that Martha and the Mcgill boys are friends and treat each other on each situation, I think this shows tenderness. Specially I liked the part in which the brothers help the screamin boy that was asking for help during the flood.
I aso liked how the story was build and the fact that the brothers are half-human , half-mermaind.
I enoyed the end too because of the way the things conclude and the characters react. ( )
