A violent summer storm had littered the old beach club with seaweed, jellyfish and something else, something really unexpected. In the murky waters at the bottom of the pool was a real live mermaid.  Hailey and Claire knew that their last summer together would be one to remember.  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
