‘The Lost Mermaid ‘ By Fern Meyer

Fourteen year old Marina Hernandez is not afraid of snything-except water. She’d rather spend her days handling snakes and dealing with spiders than dipping her toes in the pool or hanging out at the beach. But one day her dad decides to take her out on a boat. She ends up falling overboard and discovering her true identity. As a new mermaid, Marina meets a new friend who teaches her that she controls her phobia;the phobia doesn’t control her.
