Calder White is a half merman, half human teenage boy. When in water he turns into a merman. He has three sisters that are half human, half mermaid. Calder and his sisters want revenge on Jason Hancock, the man who killed his mother because of a broken heart. Jason is married with kids now. The plan is to kill one of his daughters but it changes to killing him. But Calder messes up the plan when he meets Lily, Jason's older daughter.
This book is a great book that would be good for middle schoolers. The plot gets complicated and the book deals with thoughts of death which is not appropriate for younger kids. I liked this book. It was always interesting.
