My favorite part was when Aquamarine goes into the water tower. I like that part and I wondered if Aquamarine would be able to get out. It was scary because the water tower was so small compared to her home in the ocean. I also like the fact that Aquamarine, Haley, and Claire became such good friends.
Haley is like me because she loves to swim and so do I. Claire is like Alec my neighbor because he doesn't like to go into the water and neither does Claire.
The illustrator makes the pictures look real. He uses a light pencil to make the pictures. For the colors he used blue and white.
I started to feel happy that Aquamarine made new friends. I also felt sad when Aquamarine fell into the water and went back down with her family. I was afraid her dad might never let her go back to see Haley and Claire. It made me wonder about the ocean and the sea and what it would be like to live there.
I would recommend this book because it is a funny story about a mermaid and the two girls who found her. I think the readers who like mermaids and the beach will like this story. Grades 3 and up would enjoy this book. If you have read this book you probably would love the movie. I hope you read it.
