AQUAMARINE BY ALICE HOFFMAN PDF

Hailey and Claire are spending their last summer together when they discover something at the bottom of the murky pool at the Capri Beach Club. There in the depths is a mysterious and beautiful creature with a sharp tongue and a broken heart: a mermaid named Aquamarine who has left her six sisters to search for love on land. Now, as this mythological yet very real being starts to fade in the burning August sun, a rescue is begun. On the edge of growing up, during a summer that is the hottest on record, Hailey and Claire are discovering that life can take an unpredictable course, friendship is forever, and magic can be found in the most unexpected places. It was basically a normal mermaid story.

When you held one up to your ear you could hear the sound of your best friend talking to you, even if she was a thousand miles away. This is really best read bu children and young adults but any age can enjoy it. I love the concept of two best friends who find a mermaid outside and befriend her. Sometimes one just needs to jump into a book that is at once whimsical and fun.

That is exactly what Aquamarine is and man did I enjoy it. I also have always had a fascination with the sea and yeah, mermaids are pretty interesting as well. Even though this is a young adult book, Cmon adults! Treat yourselves! Plus after all the dark and disturbing mysteries and literary fiction I read, I like a fun sweet ethereal book like this.

Aquamarine is at once an homage to the ocean, to what and who live in said ocean and to the power of friendship and its bonds. I'd really recommend it. Oh and FYI.. Four stars. View all 3 comments. Back in when I was younger I was obsessed with this movie! I had no idea it was written by Alice Hoffman I loved Aquamarine and wanted to be a mermaid with those adorable starfish earrings The singer?

And Emma Roberts? Sara Paxton was gorgeous, always reminded me of Rory Gilmore! Such a cute movie, must get the book! I'll just go watch the movie right now! In the shadows! I like my mermaids to be sparkly and bright instead of dark and in the shadows. A lifelong friendship on the line, Hailey and Claire are desperate to keep Claire from moving.

Even worse, the Capri Beach Club is getting demolished. All these events have been leading to one sucky summer. That is, until they spy something strange in the water.

Needing to get back to her own world, but wanting to find love in the human one, Hailey and Claire do everything in their power to help their newfound friend. Will they be able to help her? And will they be able to maintain their friendship, despite living so far away from each other. Fluffy, a quick read, and cute. It reminded me of lazy summer days spent by the pool when I was younger. When I pretended to be a mermaid swimming through the water and was obsessed with The Little Mermaid.

You could probably finish this in a day, and I dare you not to remember your own summer days as a kid while lost in the pages. And she does, but she needs to find her handsome man to love her back not necessarily to become a human. This is pretty much the only thing that describes Raymond. This is Raymond in a nutshell. Though I do admire his love of reading. And can he please tell me his secret to reading two hundred books over the course of three months?

Pros: This was a super cute read Cons: All the characters were pretty much one dimensional and flat affect with no real defining characteristics. So it can make for a bit of a dull storyline. Love Triangle? A Little Romance? Conclusion: I definitely thought this was a cute mermaid story, and this would definitely appeal to younger readers guestimating Watch This! But be sure to check it out if yu want to be transported back to a time when teen movies were full of cheese and dystopian genres of teen movies were unheard of.

Best friends Hailey and Claire spend their last summer together before Claire moves away at the old Capri Beach Club, where they discover the mermaid Aquamarine in the unused pool one day. Their efforts to return her to the sea before her demise parallel their struggle to come to terms with their impending separation.

Hoffman, whose adult work seems to straddle the line between fantasy and "chick lit," made her first foray into the world of children's literature with Aquamarine , which is short and unremarkable. I understand that mermaids hold a strong appeal for a certain segment of our young population for me, it was dragons , but surely there are better works out there?

This makes me nostalgic, I read it when it came out like in I still wish it was about three times longer, like an actual novel, but it's a cute story with some beautiful imagery.

May 07, Kayla rated it liked it. I never knew this was a book? I loved the movie growing up and tbh I didn't love this book. In this case I enjoyed the film adaptation more than this.
