A piece of passion from the Editor:
I adore plunging into the enchanting underwater world of The Secret Mermaid series. By day, Molly Homes is just like any other girl, but by night she becomes a shell-keeper mermaid on a magical mission – the perfect read.
When Molly Holmes moves with her family to Horseshoe Bay, her grandmother gives her an enchanted shell necklace that magically transforms her life. The power of the necklace transports Molly to the Undersea Kingdom, where she discovers that she is a Secret Mermaid and meets lots of new mermaid friends.
