5 out of 5 Stars
Sapphire City by Amy Richie
Stella gets in some trouble with the law and her mom charts her off to a tiny island called Nortica. From her very first step on the island, everything is really weird. Weird foster kids, weird island air, and weird mom. And that’s just the beginning for Stella. Soon, her whole life is turned upside down as she has to unravel the mystery surrounding the island of Nortica.
Finally we have some merfolk to read about! Stella was a great character with an awesome personality. The things she says will crack you up. She is feisty and doesn’t take crap which is perfect. She puts on a brave face and steps into the world of merfolk and takes on the quest to save her mom. And wow the end was one hell of a plot flip, and I was so not expecting it to go that way. Awesome! Draven was the perfect hero and I can’t wait to see what happens next between him and Stella. Well-deserved 5 Stars!
