Clara and the Mermaids • YA and FAMILY • FICTION

by J.D. Newman

Part 3 of the Sandy Hunter Saga

Twelve-year-old Clara doesn’t know what she wants to be, but she knows doesn’t want to be a miniature version of her mother, Sandy Hunter Gentry. Clara imitates those around her, including a shy girl named Paisley, and her pretending leads her into the world of drama and theatre. She adapts and performs her own version of Hans Cristian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid and stage manages her elementary school production of Disney’s musical version. Clara comprehends how the mermaid lost her voice by changing herself for others and how she found peace by being true to herself and her instincts. This third story in the Sandy Hunter Saga, presented through letters, emails, and text messages and written to be presented in a Zoom format, takes place 37 years after Sandy and the Weird Sisters and brings the story full circle as Sandy shares her twelve-year-old self with her own twelve-year-old daughter.
