To Catch a Mermaid (2007)
Suzanne Selfors
"To Catch a Mermaid is a delight. Suzanne Selfors knows just how to balance weird happenings with likable, believable characters. The story of the very unfortunate and very funny Broom family will appeal to anyone who likes humor, surprises, a dash of sadness, and merbabies with killer teeth. Irresistible."
