Journal Entry 1 by Jonniboi from Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Thursday, December 31, 2009
This story is BRILLIANT, I don't blame the fact that it was made into a film not long ago!

The Blurb (back of the book):
"'Hailey didn't say, You'll never believe me, which is what she would have told anyone else. She whispered the name of what she'd seen in the deep end of the pool where everything was hazy and dim. Claire held even more tightly to the railing, because she absolutely, positively, without a doubt, believed.'"

The Blurb (inside cover):
"Hailey and Claire have one last frying-hot summer together at the Capri Beach Club before Claire moves to Florida. Moon jellyfish, seaweed and barnacles fill the pool at the Capri after a storm. And the sea has brought another creature to the beach club - a mermaid.

Sharp-tongued and beautiful, Aquamarine refuses to return to the sea until she has found the love she left six sisters to search for. But as the blazing August sun burns down, how long will it be before her silver hair and deepest ocean-blue eyes are nothing but a puff of green dust?"

Arrived today (with a lovely postcard of St Andrews - thanks, will use this as a book mark while reading), 1 more to finish in front of it. Thanks for sharing

Journal Entry 7 by 24-7-365Reader on Tuesday, May 18, 2010
A quick and easy read, it only took me about 30 minutes to read, a nice story though, a story my youngest daughter would probably have enjoyed (had I not have been reading it a 10.30pm last night :) ), loosely based on The Little Mermaid.

Waiting for the address on the next person on the list

Thanks for sharing

Journal Entry 8 by MKtiny from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Arrived this morning. It seems just the book for this summery weather. I have a book to finish but I'm looking forward to this one.

Journal Entry 9 by MKtiny at Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, June 01, 2010
Read it in one sitting - a sweet story, vividly told. Soon to be winging its way to the next on the list.

Journal Entry 10 by shelj7k at Blackrock, Co. Dublin Ireland on Friday, June 11, 2010
Aquamarine showed up this morning with perfect timing. I was just on my way out to keep two appointments and, as I knew I would be waiting in these offices, I popped the book into my bag as I left the house.

I read the first 40 or so pages as I waited for my first appointment. I had a little longer to wait at the next stop and managed to read the rest of the book! In fact, as I reached the conclusion of the story I was hoping for just a few minutes more so that I wouldn't be disturbed!

Aquamarine has all the qualities of Alice Hoffman's other books, magical, lyrical writing with a heart-tugging story and, even though it is written for children, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was really very sweet.

Thank you to Jonniboi for the bookring and to MKtiny for sending it on to me. I have pm'd ToXiCKiTTiKiSS for an address and the book is ready to continue its travels as soon as I have received a reply.

Thanks for sending me this book! I will read it when I get a chance. It looks quite small, so it should not take long.

It was good short read. I have seen parts of the movie, but the book was quite different. It was an interesting tale.

Finally checked my mail after the holiday weekend and received this book. I'm currently in the middle of another book, but this one will be up right afterwards and it's definitely going to be a quick read.

Thanks for sending along and thanks for including me! :)

Journal Entry 15 by kerbam1421 at Halethorpe, Maryland USA on Monday, July 12, 2010
Started this and finished it last night in about an hour. I really enjoyed it, but wanted more.....I wanted there to be more interaction with Aquamarine and the two girls. I am curious to see the movie - I didn't even know that there was a movie until reading the reviews.

Thank you for including me. I'll PM the next in line now.
