The Girl with the Mermaid Hair
The Girl with the Mermaid Hair by Delia Ephron is about a girl named Susannah Danielle Jamieson, or Sukie as she is referred to in a majority of the book. To those who go to Cobweb (her school), she is practically perfect – smart, pretty, nice, has a nice parents and a kid brother – but as the story draws on, it shows her life problems.
She is actually very lonely – having no friends, her mother gets plastic surgery, and her father gets beaten up by a mysterious man. Finding out that her father was cheating on her mother with a much younger woman who does not like her back was the last straw for her and she starts spiraling out of control. In the end, she is saved by the most unlikeliest people. This book was very enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone who likes books filled with drama.
