The Mermaid's Mirror (Paperback)
|Author: L. K. Madigan|
A message. A key. A mirror. A secret world unlocked. Lena has lived her whole life near the beach, walking the shore, breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves. As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows to learn to surf. Her father forbids it. But something Lena can''t identify at first--an ancient, powerful magic--keeps drawing her to the water. One day, she finally catches sight of it: a beautiful woman, with a silvery tail. Now nothing can stop Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerouswaves at Magic Crescent Cove.
And what Lena sees in the mermaid''s mirror will change her life forever.
From the Publisher:
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena has just one wish: To learn to surf. She's been drawn so strongly to the waves off the coast of California her entire life, but her father, a former surfer himself, will not allow her to take lessons. When Lena begins sleepwalking to the beach--seemingly drawn by an unrecognizable force--she is compelled to learn to surf even if it means putting herself in grave danger and going against her father's wishes. | That force is the presence of a woman. A woman who finally reveals herself--and her silvery tail--to Lena. She has a message. She has a key. The key opens a brown leather sea chest Lena's father has kept hidden for many years, and when Lena discovers what's inside her life, and what she thought she knew about it, will never be the same.
