  • This is what happens when the book I m currently reading is at the wrong house I end up getting a random book on my kindle and finishing it, even though I didn t like it It s hard to make me dislike a mermaid character, but this did it Jade is a teenage girl who we re supposed to feel sorry for I think as she is preparing for a pool party despite her fear of water She doesn t want to go, but her best friend is making her try on all sorts of bathing suits Then, suddenly, she finds the perfect sui [...]


  • I knew I would love Real Mermaids Don t Wear Toe Rings I had read the great reviews I enjoy the author s quirky, somewhat out there sense of humour And I always love a book that draws me into an alternate world and allows me to stay there, happy for the duration, in my suspended disbelief.And so I bought the book And so I kept the book And so I waited for one of those delicious afternoons where I could climb into a tub with my box of chocolates and a cup of tea And I m so glad I did.Jade complet [...]


  • Great How embarrassing, starting your period while trying on bathing suits Especially when you didn t want to try on bathing suits in the first place Because you have no intention of swimming Especially since your mom drowned a year before On top of that, imagine running into him, that boy who hasn t spoken to you since that unfortunate incident during spin the bottle Just cause Luke s been gone on a sailing trip for six months doesn t mean anything has changed Oh, and you can t tell your best f [...]


  • This is the first book in the series and the last one I ll read.Jade has all the same problems that other adolescents do with a couple of big differences her mother disappeared without a trace a couple of years ago and Jade turns into a mermaid when her feet touches water Ooops, her father forgot to tell her that her mom was a mermaid and drowned only she isn t actually actually dead but has been kidnapped by evil mer people, or pesco sapiens if you are politically correct, who want to be able t [...]


  • 4.5 starsThis book is flipping awesome The humor, the character flaws, the MERMAIDSeness.Jade is a great heroine, in that she is not a mary sue Finally A character who has flaws, who doesn t have ten different guys who think she is the most beautiful human being they ve ever laid eyes on, who isn t the girl that rules the school, and who does not have enough money to buy ten mansions and a yacht She s REAL She has problems that girls will relate to She struggles with her weight She is going thro [...]



  • Yet another mermaid novel I enjoyed it The ending was awesome I liked the main character she s funny, though she does need to work on her friendships There s a little bit of romance, the kind where the couple are too shy and misunderstood to know how much they like each other until the end I look forward to seeing their relationship blossom in the next book.


  • I bought Real Mermaids Don t Wear Toe Rings for my eleven year old step daughter She loves to read, and she absolutely loved this book She was begging for the rest of the books before she was even finished I read the book after she finished, because I ve seen it reviewed around the blogosphere, and I wanted to see what it was all about When we first meet the main character, Jade, she is having a really rough day She is at the mall with her best friend and father, when horror of all horrors, she [...]


  • View of my review and others at my blog mynotsovacantshelfThis book is exactly what you would expect It s a cute fun read that left me smiling and wondering about the rest of the series.I definitely didn t see a lot of it coming I sort of expected to have the whole novel be about Jade spending time on land and having to deal with what she is while dealing with the regular perils of adolescence But, you re introduced to the under water world however, not too much It leaves a lot to the imaginati [...]


  • 4.5 starsReal Mermaids Don t Wear Toe Rings is a great coming of age story, mixed with a little mystery, for middle grade readers It s fun, it s quirky and Jade s voice is one of realism as she s coming to terms with things that are going on around her and humorous Jade had me laughing out loud than once Helene does a brilliant job at merging reality with fantasy, as Jade herself is a 13 year old girl who s not only coming to terms with her mother s mysterious drowning, but she s coming to term [...]


  • REAL MERMAIDS DON T WEAR TOE RINGS, by H l ne Boudreau, is an absolutely charming book I went out of my comfort zone reading a lower YA book, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised I sat down to start the book and finished it about two hours later I think one of the reasons I was not phased by it being a lower YA age group was because Jade was so wise for her fourteen years She had issues with her self confidence and was still dealing with the drowning death of her mother, but her voice wa [...]


  • I LOVED this book Fantastic characters and puts an AMASSING picture in your head When I finished this book, I wished it would never end Truly was an amassing book I recommend this book to kids that are about 10 or 12 years old, because it s a little in apropiet for an 8 year old like me


  • The first few chapters of this book are hysterical Gave it to my 13 year old when I was done, and she was in stitches Great voice.



  • This was an absolutely adorable mid grade book It is a very easy read and if you have a kid who is currently reading mid grade I think you should let them read this book, and then steal it and read it yourself I am gushing at the cuteness of this book, but I might be a bit obsessed with mermaids que Part of this World now Anyway, the plot is easy and sure it is predictable at points especially for those who prefer adult fiction but if you are wanting something fun for the brain and fast paced I [...]


  • What a refreshing, cute story It was a quick read that had me giggling along with the teenage antics and angst Who would think that after the Most Embarrassing Moment Ever , a nice relaxing soak in the tub could make the day get worse Well, it would if you fell asleep in the bath and woke up a mermaid Thus the story of Jade and finding out that she is a mermaid, learning about her mother s drowning and all the drama that a teenager has to deal with on a daily basis Good middle grade book I woul [...]


  • This was a cute book, but definitely should be categorized as MG instead of YA Jade is 14, but her voice and situation read much like she is in middle school While the story is cute, I think YA readers may find themselves a little bored and unable to fully connect with Jade Some MG books are written in such a way as to appeal to all ages, but I don t really think that is the case with Real Mermaids Don t Wear Toe Rings.I liked Jade and found her to be a very sympathetic character Her emotions a [...]


  • Our heroine in Real Mermaids Don t Wear Toe Rings was 13 year old Jade She finds out she s a mermaid after a crazy day at the mall where she first got her period while trying on bathing suits If that wasn t bad enough, she bumped into a cute boy while shopping for feminine products with her dad Jade just wanted to forget about her stressful day by taking a nice relaxing soak in the tub when she came out with scales and a tail instead It turned out her mom was a mermaid who was washed ashore duri [...]


  • The Good Stuff Absolutely positively one of the most delightful pieces of tween fiction I have ever read Heroine is a very real and refreshingly honest Strong opening grabs your attention and you are hooked into the story Sort of reminded me of a hipper Judy Blume book This is a compliment Snappy witty dialogue Love the relationship between Jade and her Dad Positive relationships between Jade and her friends and boys Very unique storyline Author really remembers what its like to be a 13 yr old g [...]


  • 4 5 StarsI remember when my little sister bought me this book and told me Here you go Since you love reading so much I bought this for you and then I told her Thanks I ll read it in a couple of minutes And then I automatically started to read it, and finished it in 2 hours yes its a fast read, and the writing is really easy to get into And I m glad she got me this book, because this was one of the best mermaid books, on top of Of Poseidon and Forgive my Fins Summary This is what NORMAL people de [...]

  • I ve had this one on my iPhone for a while and would read it in bits and snippets while I was in line at the store.This book started strong The narrator is conversational and funny She is a 14 year old girl dealing with the loss of her mother and the onset of womanhood While I found her interactions with her father to be amusing at times ex she has her first period and her dad rushes to her aid with a shopping cart full of pads , I thought other jokes fell flat.Somehow the opening tone of confus [...]

  • Truthfully, the only reason I read this was because I needed something mindless to read between customers on a slow work day I didn t want something too involved, something I d have to commit to finishing outside of work, or something that I would make me cry Thus, Real Mermaids.This book was okay It was a little cute, though Jade kind of annoyed me for some reason I also didn t like all the body shaming, talking about her muffin top and how fat she was, especially for a middle grade kids book s [...]

  • This was a good read Likeable characters and an interesting plot I m always buzzing for budding relationships and Jade and Luke had me smiling whenever they were together The relationship felt authentic with just the right amount of awkwardness I especially liked the fact that it wasn t corny and over the top, which I often see in young adult fiction.There was a huge twist I didn t see coming involving Luke, which I won t give away, and although it did surprise me, I didn t take well to it I wou [...]


  • What a great book for middle graders especially girls This book wasn t really about mermaids but a about a girl, Jade, coming to terms with her life and her family and fighting for them The opening of the book is worth reading the whole book funny and touching scene between a girl and her dad that almost any girl can relate to I was laughing and fighting off tears I also loved how Helene took a fresh approach to mermaids They weren t glorified sea creatures and Jade didn t all of a sudden become [...]
