Trouble at Trident Academy

Book #1 - Mermaid Tales series:
Trouble at Trident Academy

It's MerGirl Shelly Siren's first day at a new school and she is nervous from the tip of her head to the end of her sparkling mermaid tail.

How will she ever fit in at the prestigious Trident Academy? Everyone there is so smart and so pretty and so rich. She and her best friend Echo are in the same class, but so is Pearl, a spoiled know-it-all, who only wants to make trouble for Shelly; Rocky, a MerBoy who loves to tease everyone; and Kiki, a shy MerGirl, new to Trident City.

At first Shelly and Echo have lots of fun: eating lunch together, trying to make grumpy Mr. Worm smile, and joining after-school clubs. But when Shelly and Echo have an argument about their very first school assignment, Pearl comes between them and Shelly wonders if she and Echo will ever fix their undersea friendship.
