her life planned out in her mind, but suddenly when her mother
leaves just before she turns 25 she leaves her a legacy. The
legacy is that she will turn into a mermaid when she is 25.
This is a problem for Samie as not only is she afraid of the
water but she can’t swim. Hey.. she only owns the surf shop,
she doesn’t surf. She has a plan though she's going to get
hunky Jonah to teach her to swim. If she's lucky she will
also get him to be her “horizontal wrestling buddy”.
stunned Samie seems to be putting the moves on him. He has
lusted after her for a long time now but she never seemed
interested. Teaching her to swim might be a lot more fun than
she realizes. Especially if she is serious about the mermaid
thing, and can accept his secret also.
or Swim was a funny light hearted story. I liked the
idea of blending the myth of the mermaid with the selkie. The
author did a nice job in setting the scene for the Australian
coast surf crowd and how a mermaid and/or selkie might fit in
with the crowd.
