The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall



This book is an incredibly crafted story bursting with imagination. I love how the author incorporates many perspectives and weaves them together. She also uses her book as a way to express issues like identity and gender. I would highly recommend to anyone who likes fantastical lands of pirates, mermaids, and magic.  Rating: 4.5/5  By: Elizabeth (age 15)

In a world divided by colonialism and threaded with magic, a desperate orphan turned pirate and a rebellious imperial lady find a connection on the high seas. Aboard the pirate ship Dove, Flora the girl takes on the identity of Florian the man to earn the respect and protection of the crew. For Flora, former starving urchin, the brutal life of a pirate is about survival: don’t trust, don’t stick out, and don’t feel. But on this voyage, Flora is drawn to the Lady Evelyn Hasegawa, who is headed to an arranged marriage she dreads. Flora doesn’t expect to be taken under Evelyn’s wing, and Evelyn doesn’t expect to find such a deep bond with the pirate Florian. Neither expects to fall in love. Soon the unlikely pair set in motion a wild escape that will free a captured mermaid and involve the mysterious Pirate Supreme, an opportunistic witch, double agents, and the all-encompassing Sea herself.
