From the Publisher
Editors Note Kathi Appelt, at the age of seven, stumbled and fell into an alligator pit in San Antonio, Texas, a place where there should be no alligators or alligator pits. Fortunately she was a lot bigger than the alligator, who was more scared of her than she was of it! She is a member of the faculty at Vermont College's Master of Fine Arts program and occasionally teaches creative writing at Texas A&M University. She has two grown children, and lives in Texas with her husband and four cats. Her debut novel, The Underneath, was a National Book Award finalist and a Newbery Honor book.  
Annotation Readers who were enchanted by Kathi Applet's UNDERNEATH will be swept away by KEEPER. Since she was three, Keeper has wondered about her mother. She knows she is a mermaid, but where has she been for the past seven years? She might finally be able to get some answers thanks to the upcoming blue moon, a time when every year the mermaids gather on an island off the coast of Keeper's South Texas home. She's been planning this for a while, but when she fumbles some things at home with her guardian, Signe, Keeper strikes off on her own into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This is a magical story crafted by a wonderful storyteller.
