What would you do if you found out you were a mermaid? This middle-grade novel is the story of a young girl who lives on Canada's Atlantic Coast.

Despite her adoptive parents' attempts to keep her from the sea, Kira discovers she is a mermaid. When she's twelve, she decides to go back to the sea to find her real parents—or at least learn what happened to them. Dawydiak, whose adult novel House of Bears garnered positive reviews, is making her first foray into writing for this age group.
Atlantic Books Today - April 1, 2014
"Dawydiak's simply written tale will capture the imagination of young readers who are drawn to the myths and legends of the sea. Like Kira and Cody, they will revel in the descriptions of selkies, merrows, and finfolk and their fantastical underwater realm."
