Dark Passage
Ridley Pearson
(206 pages) Jade, a 14-year-old girl, falls asleep in her bathtub. When she wakes up, her legs are gone and she has a tail.
It turns out, her mermaid features comes from her mother. Who drowned. So now, Jade goes searching around for answers-and finds out that there is more to her mom drowning than anyone could ever think.

I'd recommend this book to teen girls who like to read about fantasy, especially mermaids.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
