Under the Lagoon (The Nevergirls #13) by Kiki Thorpe -OPTIONAL

Thorpe, Kiki Under the Lagoon (The Nevergirls #13), 112 pages.  Random House, 2016.  $6.  Language: G (o swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Gabby, the youngest of the Never Girls, wants to meet a mermaid. But its quite apparent they are not friendly. One day when she is allowed off alone to look for sea glass, she meets a younger mermaid, just her same age. They strike up a secret friendship. When a pixie spies them playing, she tells everyone. Quickly the fun gets exaggerated into danger, and everyone is worried.
This is a really fun series, but I am pretty much over reviewing books in it. In the school library I rarely have series read past book one or two (with a few exceptions like magic treehouse –but even then –they don’t read them in order). This book is fun, high quality, and has a lot of heart –I like the lesson about accepting others and overcoming prejudice. Add this to your library if this series is popular, if not –invest in books 1-3 and see how it goes.
