In a moment of despair, a split-second decision changes her life forever. Pulled from the brink by an unexpectedand as it turns out, sometimes annoyingsupernatural ally, Jenny is forced to rethink her ideas about success, motherhood, romance, and relationships. Confronting her inner demonsof both the mermaid and nonmermaid varietyis no easy task, and eventually Jenny has to come to terms with who she truly is, for better or worse.
