Hester Velmans is an accomplished translator who has won awards for her translations of adult novels. This is her first original novel. She lives in Armonk, NY. From the Hardcover edition.
"Fantasy and reality merge in this aquatic coming-of-age adventure with a compelling ecological message. . . To Velmans's credit, the improbable seems probable through the eyes and voice of her down-to-earth heroine. Watch out Little Mermaid, here comes Isabel."-Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.
