Genre:  Young Adult/Paranormal
Length:  163 pages
Publisher:  Solstice Shadows

Have you ever felt the grass is greener everywhere else? Well, so does Miranda James. With divorced parents, a mother who is always on her case, and a new stepmother on the horizon, Miranda wishes that everyone would just grow up.

In a moment of magic, Miranda is mysteriously pulled into the life of Abigail, a charming mermaid, and Abigail’s adventurous daughter, Elise. Miranda wonders why her life can’t be so carefree and exciting.

Miranda soon learns to be careful what she wishes for, though; held captive in an underwater paradise turned prison, Miranda desperately wants nothing more than to recapture the life she used to have.

After many twists and turns, Miranda is faced with making a decision that will affect not only her life, but the lives of those around her.

What will she choose? What would you choose?




Mama’s Thoughts:
Miranda’s Choice is a sweet fairytale for young adults, suitable for 12+ as there is no hanky panky business or coarse language.  This charming story follows Miranda as she not only comes of age but also tries to come to terms with her destiny.  Sometimes you have to learn the hard way, and for Miranda that is a tough pill to swallow.  She’s very envious and a bit of a dreamer, but I felt that she showed some improvement where her attitude is concerned by the book’s end.  It’s a fairly short read, just over novella length and would be a great way to spend one of your last summer afternoons.  Dive into this 3.5 star read today!
