Gr 7 Up—The film version of Disney's The Little Mermaid ended with happily ever after. But what if Ariel never married Eric or defeated Ursula? In this twisted tale, Braswell has taken the beloved characters and written a what-if story that takes wild turns. A wiser Ariel returns to life in Atlantica alone under the sea with her sisters and sea creature friends—Scuttle, Flounder, Sebastian, and Threll. Prince Eric is now married to Ursula, the sea witch disguised as princess Vanessa using Ariel's voice. Ariel's father, King Triton, is being held captive by the demonic sea witch, and now it's up to the little mermaid to rescue him and get revenge and her lost love. An underwater sea battle ensues. Braswell has written an action-packed read that teens will not be able to put down. Fans of the previous twisted Disney tales will devour this captivating installment full of humor.
VERDICT Purchase where retellings and mermaid fantasies are popular.
