Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath

Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath - Helene Boudreau Due to copy and paste, formatting has been lost.Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath picked up right where Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings (what a mouthful of a name!) left off, which gave me a little bit of time to get back into the story, but it didn't really give me any time to get reacquainted with the characters. On the other hand, I don't have any confusion about what happened between books, (hint: nothing) because of the no-gaps-between-story-lines thing.Jade was still an awesome and true to life kind of character, but I really feel like she grew in this one, maybe matured? I really liked reading through her point of view, because her sense of humor is absolutely to die for and her inner monologue is absolutely awesome. It's like reading a commentary to a real life event, which was cool.I think that my only real problem with Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath is that it's just a tad bit too action-packed. Don't get me wrong, I love action! But honestly, so many different things were happening in the plot at one time, and so many things that really shouldn't have happened kept happening...and AHH! I'd just better leave it at that. BUT the adding and adding to the plot was absolutely ridiculous! o_OAll in all, Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath is a light and fluffy read that I would definitely recommend for younger teens, but I'm not so sure that every one will like it, considering my reaction to the plot. *sigh*
