Swim to Me

Swim to Me Cover
Swim to Me by Betsy Carter is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Seventeen year old Delores Walker leaves her Bronx home to journey to Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida, so she can be come a mermaid. Little does she realize that she is going to become Delores Taurus, the star of the show.

Carter weaves an interesting tale with complex characters who change and grow throughout the book. The story is well paced and Carter does an excellent job of filling the characters’ backstories at precisely the right moment so we can see their motives and what drives them.

I’m not much of a fiction fan and this one will be one that I read and re-read.
