    The frustrating thing about this book is that it had so much promise The set up and feel of the world and characters had the potential to be a beautiful and touching story Instead I felt mostly irritation at the relationships between the characters which seemed slapdash and rushed A wanted a story about loss and sisterly bonds What I got was a poorly construed romance with a little villain thrown in Even as an adventure story the scale is

First impressions do matter and I couldn t help being attracted to The Mermaid s Sister The cover art is gorgeous and it promises a good fairy tale one that weaves relatable everyday humans with fantastical creatures Unfortunately the attraction faded when I was about 3 chapters through and what s left was a feeling of ambivalence that lingered until the end There is nothing original nothing uniue The setting of an early 20th century fantasy rural America was charming but the novelty wore off pretty uickly There did not seem to be a logical structure to the world building either which was disappointing Reading it didn t really feel like a chore but it was so easy to be distracted while reading it I kept zoning out and had to backtrack to figure out what was going on Half the time I realized once I was caught up that I didn t really missed anything important The Mermaid s Sister is about Clara and Maren When Maren starts her transformation into a mermaid Clara with the help of a dear family friend O Neill set off on an adventure to save her the sister she has known and wants to keep We get to follow Clara s coming of age her struggles with finding herself and her love for and jealousy of her sister whom she perceived to be prettier and have special attributes she did not have The characters are cute but they could be developed Clara is enad with her sister and constantly describes her beauty Yes her sister is a beautiful mermaid but it sounds like Clara has a major inferiority complex and that s never addressed Whenever Clara mentions herself she talks about how she s not pretty like her sister not brave not skilled not at all noteworthy This could have been an interesting plot point where she realizes she doesn t have to be a glorious mythical creature to be special But she never does Even at the end when someone tells her she s brave and sweet she refuses to believe it Meanwhile her sister doesn t seem to live up to all the praise The faster Maren transforms into a mermaid the less personality she has Once she loses her speech early in the book all she does is primp cry or stick out her tongue at Clara She seems like the object of a video game uest than a dimensional person experiencing a major transformation The sisters don t feel real at all and I find the secondary characters Scarf O Neill and the Auntie enjoyable than these twoThe plot is straightforward simple and in my opinion a bit predictable Their mission is determined at the beginning and their mission is accomplished at the end There aren t any twists They do hit a few snags to slow them down but it still ends exactly how I expected The resolution felt forced though and there are still so many loose ends that are never addressed at all I also thought the love story in the book was just thrown in out of the blue for the story to end neatly view spoiler I hated that O Neill seemed so interested in Maren and then in the end without any substantial clue really liked Clara instead hide spoiler

Unfinished at 30%I got a bad feeling at the beginning of this Something in my gut told me in the first few pages that a vital element of the story was missing that I was not going to enjoy thisI should have listened There are so many things wrong with this I could barely get through a page without getting annoyed at somethingSo positives Ummm I liked Scarff He was a pretty decent storyteller and named after one of my favorite accessories That s a plus I guessThe writing is dullsville There s at least one uote every chapter about the main character constantly wishing for things What does it mean Does it highlight her own passivity in life Tie in to the magical realism Nope There s no depth or meaning to be found I felt like the writing constantly skimmed the surface of every character and gave no indication of diving deeperSpeaking of magical realism which when done properly is one of my favorites of favorites I don t know what the hell was going on with the magic elements of the story Maren is transforming into a mermaid Auntie knows potions there s a wyvern and babies are literally dropped off by storks But somehow the idea of a traveling salesman selling potions is scoffed at And they don t want to let the village know about themThe world in The Mermaid s Sister is incredibly flat Yes Maren is turning into a mermaid Okay How about giving a little context as to how mermaids fit into this world SomethingBut the kicker for me is Clara our protagonist What does she look like No idea What does she like to do Well she wishes for things And umshe walks and talks and eats Probably poops and sleeps too All of which my cats can do They wish for salmon treats dailyOh she has the best friend O Neill Maybe he ll help develop her character And he s actually not too bad Until Clara develops feelings towards him and immediately decides it s true love Cause when you re 16 and living in some weird ass mountains with a mermaid in a bathtub what else is there to do but fall in loveLong story short I think that a story about a girl turning into a mermaid and testing the bonds of sisterhood should be magical This couldn t even fire off a spark
