Title: Between the Sea and Sky
Author: Jaclyn Dolamore
Release Date: October 25, 2011
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
For as long as Esmerine
can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a
siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to
the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to
transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the
capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since
childhood--a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged
race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for
Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a
love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.
I adore the cover, and I hope the book isn't horribly tragic. I know what tale it's based on (think about it, it's not hard to figure out) and I desperately hope it doesn't end terribly, like a Romeo & Juliet ending.
