Overview

The fourth audiobook in the best-selling series about half-mermaid, half-girl Emily Windsnap!

Emily Windsnap’s life on Allpoints Island seems perfect—her family is all together again, and she has both her best friend, Shona, and her new friend Aaron with her there. Somehow, though, it still feels like something—or somewhere—is missing. So when Neptune gives the Windsnaps a mission that sends them all back to Brightport, their hometown, what could be better?

But as construction in Brightport threatens to destroy the nearby mer-town of Shiprock, Neptune’s desire to have humans and mermaids come together seems impossible. Between trying to help humans and merfolk get along, sorting out her growing feelings toward Aaron, finding some missing sirens with Shona, and dealing with her old enemies Mandy and Mr. Beeston, Emily certainly has her fins full!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Emily Windsnap might be described as a part-time mermaid: On land, her aquatic fins are replaced by two very capable feet. There is nothing ambiguous, however, about the appeal of this fetching series. In her latest interspecies effort, Emily and her sea-friendly friends swim against a strong tide to save a construction project that threatens to destroy an underground mermaid community. Never before has environmentalism been so sweet; ages nine thru 12. Now in paperback and NOOKbook.

Children's Literature - Cynthia Levinson
This fourth book in the "Emily Windsnap" series continues the tales about Emily, a semi-mer (finned lower half when in water, two-legged when on dry land); her best friend Shona; a male interest, Aaron, and a nemesis, Mandy. The conflict in this book involves three groups whose cold peace with each other is beginning to heat up. Neptune has declared a policy of detente between humans, such as Emily's mother, and merpeople. Because of Emily's brave actions in previous stories, he assigns her and her family the job of carrying it out. It is a challenging assignment, however, because humans are threatening to destroy underwater caves, an act likely to result either in the destruction of merpeople's homes or in the merpeople's becoming a degrading circus act to entertain humans. Meanwhile some mermaids, including the principal of Emily's school, are fostering enmity between full mermaids and semi-mers. Adventure, too, heats up when a family friend, Mr. Beeston, starts acting strangely, Shona and a "Lost thing" must be located, and a magic map must be deciphered. The source of the excitement and suspense are threatening sirens, a particular disappointment to Emily, who wants to grow up to become one. The conclusion reveals the intertwined relationships among the groups and leads to their acceptance of one another. The story sustains suspense and multiple story lines. Readers who have not read the earlier books can with close attention understand and enjoy it and those who have will appreciate this back-by-popular-demand sequel. Reviewer: Cynthia Levinson
School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Emily Windsnap, half-human/half-mermaid, is faced with her biggest challenge yet when she learns that the mermaid village of Shiprock is about to be destroyed by bulldozers. While attempting to unite humans and merpeople to prevent the disaster, Emily discovers that whenever she and Aaron hold hands, weird things start happening, like people suddenly forget that they're not supposed to know that mermaids exist. She and her best friend, Shona, find some lost sirens but then get stuck underneath a waterfall with them with no way out. The characters are multidimensional, the book is fast paced, and the mishaps and adventures are entertaining.—Kira Moody, Hunter Public Library, West Valley City, UT

    Love Love LOVE!

    This is my second favorite book out of the four! My first would have to be Castle in the Mist though. I love the drama and especially the romance! Emily + Aaron, you go girl! I'm not too fond of the newfound friendship between Mandy and Emily, but hey, who am I to complain? Anyway, love this series and I am eagerly awaiting the fifth!

    Cool:)

    I read the three previous books in the series, and I loved them.
    Each book is better than the last, good, great, amazing, and incredible.
    Liz Kessler had better keep on writing- she has so many fans- including me!
    GOOD NEWS: Emily Windsnap and the midnight sun ( book five) comes out in spring 2013 in America.
    Some people who wrote reviews said that you will like it if you like fantasy.
    Not true!! My friend, age 11, claims to not like fantasy, yet loves this!!
    If you like Emily Windsnap (you will) you might also like:
    H2O: Just add water ( a show), or you also might like Phillipa Fisher and the dream-makers daughter ( a book by Liz Kessler).
    Once again, you will love this book!!
