I had seen the movie and remembered it to be fairly entertaining, but found the story a bit boring a disappointing. I was stuck reading it since I had nothing else with me (read while in the docs office, so it was good for that at least). I was looking for a quick read, which I found, but it wasn't all that great.

I thought that a lot more could have happened but it was a really cute romance/drama. They made friends and got closure with the girl moving away, the mermaid got her love. It was cute, sweet, and simple all while exploring a whole selection of feelings and emotions. One of my favorite books!
