Book excerpt: Being a Teenage Mermaid is No Day at the Beach A tropical vacation sounds like the perfect way to spend fall break—even for an aqua-phobic mer-girl like Jade. She can't wait to enjoy the warm sunshine and all-you-can-eat buffet with her best friend Cori and boyfriend Luke. (That's right. Boyfriend. It's official.) But when a body splashes into the water as a cruise ship enters the harbor, Jade realizes there might be trouble in paradise. And the mysterious boy selling conch shells in the market definitely knows more than he's letting on. Jade promised herself: No mer drama on vacation! But it couldn't hurt to check things out...right?

Download or read book The Very Short, Entirely True History of Mermaids PDF or another Format written by Sarah Laskow and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2020-03-03 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From Ariel to the current craze for Sirens, mermaids have captivated our imaginations. But what's true and what's fairy tale? For centuries, mermaids have appeared in the folklore of cultures from around the world, including the Near East, Europe, Asia, and Africa. And Disney made everyone want to dive under the sea with Ariel when the movie The Little Mermaid hit theaters in 1989. But what are mermaid stories based on? Many myths say these creatures are half human and half fish, while others claim they are simply manatees mistaken for something more magical. Some grant wishes and fall in love, yet others have lured sailors to their doom. Although we can't say for sure where the tales of these elusive figures first originated, author Sarah Laskow separates the fact from the fiction. This full-color, fully illustrated book tells you all you need to know about the myths, science, and history that surround mermaids.
Download or read book Subcortical PDF or another Format written by Lee Conell and published by JHU Press. This book was released on 2017-11-15 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The off-balanced but lively characters in Subcortical use their own braininess and grit in their attempts to navigate past the borders of their homes and histories. In the title story, a young woman who wants to become a doctor is manipulated by an older man to play a role in one of his medical studies. In the award-winning story "The Lock Factory," three women construct combination locks for schools on an assembly line. A recently unemployed man turns to a Muppet impersonator at a bar for job advice in "A Suggestion." A crystallographer in "Unit Cell" sees a ghost from her past through her microscope. In "The Rent-Controlled Ghost," a boy searches for the spirit of the mistreated tenant who formerly inhabited his apartment. "The Sextrology Woman" introduces readers to a mold removal specialist-in-training who must decide if his romantic relationship is worth fighting for. The timely return of an imaginary friend in "Guardian" forces a woman to reconsider her relationship with her dying mother. And a tour guide's own stories show up to haunt him in "A Guide to Sirens." This collection examines the unreliability of memory and the permeability between the real and the imagined. With humor and humanity, these dynamic stories delve into the mysteries that haunt Subcortical's characters' minds and hearts as they struggle with economic disparity, educational divides, and the often-contested urban spaces in which they live"--
