TITLE: The Mermaid Riot
GENRE: Young Adult Historical Fantasy
AUTHOR: Joy E. Held
It’s 1876 and Tobias Doyle is itching to escape his war-devasted hometown of Kingston, SC, when he witnesses something he can’t unsee on the beach behind his home. The desire to confirm his vision, and perhaps return to the good graces of his lost love, Serena, compels him to break the law to find out if mermaids really do exist. When he discovers that Serena saw the same thing, they secretly join forces to return the fish-girl to her home, but they must first save her from being sold to the circus.
