Flipping the Scales

Flipping Scales

Meredith and Marina’s lives have been flipped upside down.

When the translucent skirt that straight-A-student Meredith finds hidden on the beach gets wet, it transforms her legs into a mermaid tail. Despite the evidence in front of her, she insists that becoming a mythical creature isn’t scientifically possible.

Marina is allowed to experience one day per moon cycle among the humans. After hiding her tail on the beach that morning, she takes her first timid steps on land. When she returns at sunset to find it missing, she is left stranded and alone.

For the first time in her life, Meredith doesn’t have all the answers. As she searches for a way to return to normal before the next full moon, she makes waves among the school of mermaids. Meanwhile, Marina uncovers information about her past, and for the first time in her life, she must stand on her own two feet and take the lead on her own adventure.

As Meredith senses her human side slipping away, a forbidden way to change back entices her. But it comes with a consequence: Marina wouldn’t be able to return to the ocean.

Readers’ Favorite FIVE-STAR review.


“This is an entertaining mermaid story that does two things. Although it is a fantasy story, there is a lot of the story that is contemporary as well, talking about humans, the island, and the beach community. This helps draw readers that are more contemporary fiction fans and gives them a reason to want to pick up this book to give fantasy a try. And the fantasy side of the story is well written also. The characters are like fish out of water and readers will love the humor within this story as they both try to get back to their normal lives.”
