This is a cute story for young girls. My 5-year old daughter found this book on a shelf at the bookstore and wanted it since she is obsessed with mermaids. I wasn't sure if this book was appropriate for her age but I decided it would be a good chapter book to read with her at bedtime. She absolutely loved the story and is very excited to continue the second book in the series. The story is about a young girl, Emily, who by accident learns that she is part mermaid and part human. She meets another mermaid, Shona, and they become fast friends. The two mermaids journey together to find Emily's father who she has never met. Emily learns about the love story between her mom and dad. This is a great story about friendship and relationships and the writing is very vivid...you can actually picture the beautiful colors and life in the sea!

A cute book, but nothing really special. There is a sequel but although Emily was fun to read about, I'd prefer to leave her in the happy ending of this book, so I won't seek out the next one.

Loved-loved-loved Emily Windsnap and can't wait to receive book 2! This book is written for 'tweens, but this 40-something mother just fell in love with the characters in the book. Emily and Shona's friendship reminded me so much of the best friend I made in 2nd grade and still have today. I read this book in a day. It was well worth the few hours it took to read it. And it's not just a "girls" book. Boys would find the adventure and intrigue very interesting.

I loved this book. A good quick ready for anyone of any age to enjoy. If you love the little mermaid and still do as you have gotten older, you will love this book as well, as Emily takes on an Ariel like personality.
