I read a borrowed ARC of this book. A sweet and charming fantasy tale for middle grade readers. Beautifully written, KEEPER tells the story of a 10 year old girl who has grown up believing in mermaids and magic. After a terrible day, she embarks on an adventure to try to make things right again. KEEPER is a story of family, friendship, heartbreak, hope, adventure, magic and love written in a poetic style. I fell for the characters who live on the island with Keeper. An enjoyable read for a summer day- I would have loved to read this as a kid!
