A lifelong friendship on the line, Hailey and Claire are desperate to keep Claire from moving. Even worse, the Capri Beach Club is getting demolished. All these events have been leading to one sucky summer. That is, until they spy something strange in the water. Needing to get back to her own world, but wanting to find love in the human one, Aquwmarine and Claire do everything in their power to help their newfound friend.
Will they be able to help her?
And will they be able to maintain their friendship, despite aquamarind so far away from each other. Fluffy, a quick read, and cute. It reminded me of lazy summer days spent by the pool when I was younger.
When I pretended to be a mermaid swimming through the water and was obsessed with The Little Mermaid. You could probably finish this in a day, and I dare you not to remember apice own summer days as a kid while lost in the pages. And she does, but she needs to find her handsome man to love her back not necessarily to become a human.
This is pretty much the only thing that describes Raymond.
This is Raymond in a nutshell. Though I do admire his love of reading. And can he aquammarine tell me his secret to reading two hundred books over the course of three months? This was a super cute read Cons: All the characters were pretty much one dimensional and flat affect with no real defining characteristics. So it can make for a bit of a dull storyline.
I definitely thought this was a cute mermaid story, and this aluce definitely appeal to younger readers guestimating Back in the Golden Age of innocent teen movies the early sHollywood decided to make a movie version of this book. But be sure to check hoffmqn out if yu want to be transported back to a time when teen movies were full of cheese and dystopian genres of teen movies were unheard of.
Jan 25, Oliviu Craznic rated it it was ok.
He’d read so many books that he thought he knew how every story ended. This story is short and sweet. This makes me nostalgic, I read it when it came out like in I still wish it was about three times longer, like an actual novel, but it’s a cute story with some beautiful imagery.
Back in when I was younger I was obsessed with this movie! I had no idea it was written by Alice Hoffman Hoffmwn loved Aquamarine and wanted to be a mermaid with aquwmarine adorable starfish earrings Sara Paxton was gorgeous, always reminded me of Rory Gilmore!
Such a cute movie, must get the book!
I’ll just go watch the movie right now! Feb 15, Heidi Garrett rated it really liked it Shelves: It’s for pretty young readers, but aquaarine you want a sliver of Hoffman’s writing, or you want a very quick, fun read, and you love mermaids, I recommend this. Hoffman has her own style of writing. As a writer entranced by her storytelling abilities, I’ve been trying to understand how she weaves her narrative magic for years: This smaller work is probably an easier study to deconstruct if that’s possible!
Aquamarine (By Alice Hoffman)
My husband is an artist, and his teacher taught him to study the masters. For me, Alice Hoffman is bby master! The version of the book I got includes the first chapter of Indigo, Water Tale 2. Now, I’m anxious to read that. This book also reminded me of Hoffman’s Green Angel. The two novels in the Green Heart series are also short, but they’re more complex, and there’s more poetry in the writing.
March 16th, she’s a Pisces! It was an intimate and emotionally intense experience as ten readers and writers gushed about what Alice Hoffman’s work wlice to us. Check it out, and join us on March 16th! May 07, Kayla rated it liked it. I never knew this was a book? I loved the movie growing up and tbh I didn’t love this book. In this case I enjoyed the film adaptation more than this. Feb 05, Kimberly rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Loving other Alice Hoffman books, I grabbed this without a second thought.
It is meant for a younger audience, which I didn’t realize at first.
It is well written for younger girls to whom friendship and love mean everything. As an adult, I didn’t find it a wonderful, thought provoking story.
It was a very quick read, and not entirely boring either though. Feb hoffmam, Lindsay Cummings rated it it was amazing. P I made it to page 11 and felt like I was wasting my time.
Too confusing, to backstory-y, no mermaids. Sep 03, Talitha Coelho rated it it was amazing. I’ve always wanted to read this lovely tale since I was a child and now I’m very happy that I was not disappointed. I loved the two girls and aquamarine. This tale brought back the feeling of my life and dear alic of my childhood. And the tale was too beautifully simple to not enjoy.
Jan 10, Annika rated it liked it Shelves: This was a sweet adaptation type book with pictures. It’s obviously better for kids. I loved this movie, so I thought I would love the book. I enjoyed it, but it was very short and a bit cheesy G- practically nothing inappropriate, I think there might have been one kiss. Nov 21, C.
