Secrets of Carrick
Summary "Life doesn't just grow you up and leave you there; it keeps beating you into different shapes, like the cliffs. The people of Carrick have been whispering behind Neen's back for most of her life; ever since her father drowned and her mother disappeared. The townspeople say her mother was a merrow who has returned to her real home in the ocean. Neen wonders if perhaps the villagers are right. But if her mother is a merrow then what does this make Neen? This pitiless summer all the talk will end in trouble. All Neen wants is the truth."--Back cover
