In this book, a lighthouse keeper finds a baby floating in a wooden chest in the ocean. He takes her in a s his daughter, and decides to call her May. Years later after may has grown up,s he begins to learn truths about her life that have been kept hidden from her. She learns that the people who she had thought were her mother and father are not, she learns that the reason she feels so different is because she’s actually mermaid, she finds that she has two sisters, one of which she locates, and at the end she learns to accept herself. I enjoyed this book because I love mermaids and it taught the important lesson of accepting who you are, no matter what you are.
