Book Type: Novel
Author: Emily Rodda
Jessie's helped the magical people of the Realm to escape danger twice now -- she's a real hero to her friends there. But now her own world is in danger. Forest fires threaten her beloved home, Blue Moon. And only the magic of the realm can help her...
A book immediately becomes interesting when a girl has the ability to travel to another world, especially when mermaids are involved!
I was happy that although this book is part of a series, you don't need to read the first two books to understand what's going on; everything is recapped.
I was not a fan of Jessie. She can be bratty and whiny when she doesn't get her way, even in the fairy realm! However, the book has other good points. The pictures are amazingly gorgeous and Rodda's writing is beautifully descriptive, allowing the reader to travel along with Jessie. If I could change one thing, I would include more mermaid details. This was a cute and short book with a good plot.
I give this book (***) 3 stars.
