A Book to Read and Love: When We Believed in Mermaids - Barbara O'Neal


A short summary and review of When We Believed in Mermaids:

A sister searches New Zealand for the surfer Jose Bianci.

My favorite quote from the book:

" A girl without a mother who protects her is a girl at the mercy of the world."

Questions to ponder while reading When We Believed In Mermaids:

Have you ever done something you were ashamed of?

How present were your parents?

My thoughts about the book:

A fun, family drama.

Dysfunctional parent recovery book.

Kind of a cheesy ending.
