The theme of this story is, best friends are like sisters, there always here for you. If it wasn't for her new best friend Shona, She wouldn't have known right from wrong in the huge deep ocean. I can relate to this story because I have a best friend right now. She helps me through everything no matter what it has to do with, and I do the same for her.

I really enjoyed this book!! In this story Emily didn't know she was a mermaid until her first swim lesson. She felt pain in her legs as they combined into one. Later into the book she figures out more about her dad and how he just left. She meets a friend named Shona during her journey and they just click. After days of looking and researching they figure out something, but what?? Go to your local library and check out the book The tail of Emily Windsnap for more information!
