Mermaid Tales: Trouble at Trident Academy (Book 1) by Debbie Dadey –OPTIONAL

Dadey, Debbie Mermaid Tales: Trouble at Trident Academy (Book 1) 112 pgs. CHAPTER BOOK.  Aladdin, 2012. $5.99.  (Rating: G)

Shelly is MerGirl is starting at a new school, but luckily her best friend Echo is there! When they fight, a snobby MerGirl makes things even worse. The girls also really want to make the cook Mr. Fangtooth smile. Will the girls make up and will they start a new trend?

I have to be honest, I really hated this book. It was like eating too many Starbursts, they just sit in your stomach like a big hunk of plastic. I know from experience that 2-3 grade students dig these kinds of books. If you are trying to beef up your chapter books, you could do worse and I bet this book/series would see circulation.
