Booklist Review

What's next for our favorite mergirl? Certainly more than Emily bargains for when her eighth-grade class arrives at Fivebays Island for an excursion, only to learn their course leader, Lowenna, is missing. It turns out that Lowenna is trapped aboard a cruise ship that's been pulled into the magnetic field of the mysterious neverland Atlantis, threatening passengers with oblivion if they cannot escape. Leave it to Emily's unique mermaid genius to save the day. Kessler's sixth Emily Windsnap novel provides a fun fantasy with well-drawn characters and engaging suspense, as Emily works against time to pull off the rescue.--O'Malley, Anne Copyright 2015 Booklist

Horn Book Review

The sixth book features half-mermaid Emily on an island field trip when a ghostly ship appears. Caught between this world and mystical Atlantis, only Emily can rescue the passengers from disappearing forever. Imaginative details of human and mer worlds coexist with simplistic characterization and other narrative turnoffs that fans of the light series may overlook. Black-and-white spot art opens each chapter. (c) Copyright 2016. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
