I read this book about 5 years ago. It was about a mermaid who worked in the local palace taking care of these things that would attach themselves to a merperson when he/she was older. She liked this one particular one, that she could always play with. Well she met this guy in one of the lines and he ended up being the bad guy. he took her to see a guy in mermaid jail, who told her that a bit of the creature was emplanted into her head, cause thats where they emplant. Well there was a whole plot to kill the king which happened. She ended up going to the above land and turning into a human, leaving off to her trying to find that thing. The only other detail I remember is thgat in the book it stated that they constantly needed to move around to make sure they could breathe. Please help me find this book. I would very much like to revisit it, and read the rest of the series.

I found it at a scholastic book fair, so I think its one of those books.

Jesesica, what age level was it?  And while you read it five years ago, was that the time of publication?

Here's a few suggestions to start off with, I'll keep looking:

Water: Tales of Elemental Spirits

or The Water Trilogy by Kara Delkey, where Ascension is the first book.

This looks like a cute series!  Mermaid S.O.S  although they are recently published.
