National Book Award finalist and Newbery Honoree Appelt enchants with a tale about mermaids, mermen, and what happens when a girl outgrows fairy tales just a little too late.
From the Publisher:
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.

Praise

"Appelt masterfully balances themes of loss and renewal and demonstrates that magic works in unexpected ways. In so doing, she has written another keeper." (starred review) 05/03/2010
