Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes

A magical coming-of-age story from Coretta Scott King honor author Jewell Parker Rhodes, rich with Southern folklore, friendship, family, fireflies and mermaids, plus an environmental twist.

It's city-girl Maddy's first summer in the bayou, and she just falls in love with her new surroundings - the glimmering fireflies, the glorious landscape, and something else, deep within the water, that only she can see. Could it be a mermaid? As her grandmother shares wisdom about sayings and signs, Maddy realizes she may be the only sibling to carry on her family's magical legacy. And when a disastrous oil leak threatens the bayou, she knows she may also be the only one who can help. Does she have what it takes to be a hero? Jewell Parker Rhodes weaves a rich tale celebrating the magic within.

Bayou Magic By: Jewell Parker Rhodes Great book for younger readers! I feel that the book is different than I expected it to be. It is about a girl who goes to her grandmother’s house. She doesn’t want to at first, but she soon realized the Bayou her grandmother lived in was filled with wonders and mysteries. I expected the book to be on more of a teen or young adult age content. It is not, and is more of a 6-8 age content. It has little reality. The first few chapters interested me more than the rest. The characters acted in a strange way that seemed almost enjoyable at first, but soon became odd, and I personally did not like it. My biggest issue with it is probably the younger age content. The back, and front covers make it out to be a wonderful mystery book for all ages. It isn’t. The language used, the way of speech, and the whole plot of the story is very simple and not very entertaining. I was bored easily by this book and wasn’t something I wished to keep turning the pages. I think it is a wonderful book if you are ages 8 and younger, but otherwise I wouldn’t waste your money.
