Dr. Fredrika Shea Bimm, Fred to her friends, was a marine biologist working at the New England Aquarium. She preferred pools to open ocean, got seasick on boats, was allergic to seafood, and was a mermaid. Well, she developed a tail when she got wet. She also didn't understand people and fish weren't any better. She only had one friend, Jonas Carrey, who she'd rescued from bullies in grammar school. But now that he was a chemical engineer, he was determined to rescue her from split ends. When she learns Boston Harbor is being polluted, she glad it's someone else's problem until she's forced to help solve it. From release/information:
Book Description: Fred is not your ordinary mermaid. She's not blonde. She's not buxom. And she's definitely not perky. In fact, Fred can be downright cranky. And it doesn't help matters that her hair is blue.
While volunteering at the New England Aquarium, Fred learns that there are weird levels of toxins in the local seawater. A gorgeous marine biologist wants her help investigating. So does her merperson ruler, the High Prince of the Black Sea. You'd think it would be easy for a mermaid to get to the bottom of things. Think again.
