The Lost Princess (Mermaid Tales Book #5) by Debbie Daley –OPTIONAL

Daley, Debbie The Lost Princess (Mermaid Tales Book #5) 128 pgs. Aladdin, 2013. $13.03.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

The students of the Trident academy are shocked to find out that a real princess is a student at the school. Will this princess discovery go to her head, shocked as she is herself, or will she be able to find a way to use her new status for good? What about the secret part? Why would her grandfather lie to her? Can this new princess be herself or is she just a typical princess?

To be brutally honest I have really disliked this series, it came off as sickly sweet and candy coated. But it has been so popular with the students, that I gave it another shot. Once my grown-up brain got past all the slangy ocean converted words, this was a fun story with even some character building included. Add this series if you need some safe entertaining filler.
