In a mix of Missing May and The Little Mermaid, Tozier creates the first book in a proposed fantasy series featuring a young girl who has relocated to Florida with her eccentric aunt and uncle.She finds herself surrounded by creatures acting strangely and then falls into a shell-like water world. Unfortunately, the book reads like a series launch, introduces way too many things without developing characters (a mother in Iraq feels like window dressing) and events seemed created for story conveni In a mix of Missing May and The Little Mermaid, Tozier creates the first book in a proposed fantasy series featuring a young girl who has relocated to Florida with her eccentric aunt and uncle.She finds herself surrounded by creatures acting strangely and then falls into a shell-like water world. Unfortunately, the book reads like a series launch, introduces way too many things without developing characters (a mother in Iraq feels like window dressing) and events seemed created for story convenience. The final battle scene is anticlimactic. Teachers may enjoy the links to Wisconsin since the story begins in Sun Prairie and has references to living in Wisconsin. (I wondered if there was any coincidence that an early character is named Doug Buehl?) Whenever I read a book like this, I wonder why the author just didn't write the story of the girl and her family. Why do we always think fantasy worlds will be more interesting than reality? Nominated in Fiction Intermediate Category.

    The good: I was intrigued enough by the nature-based fantasy to see where the story would go. The setting plays a nice role, and the idea of giant micro-organisms was fascinating (I had to look up pictures of tardigrades - yikes!) I think kids who like science and fantasy would enjoy the unusual combination. The not-so-good: The dialogue was often stilted, the characters were a bit flat, and there were lots of elements introduced that are left hanging until later books in the series.

What's up with the parents? The whole plot felt a bit forced - the evil group of people trying to find the Pearl, etc. felt cliched.

    fantastic suspenseful fantasy! This was a very original and imaginative story.; a definite action packed page turner. This is a delightful story about a heroic young girl that finds herself into many precarious situations. I was very entertained by the book, and will be looking to continue traveling with Olivia during her next adventure. The author provided me with a copy of this book for an honest review.
