He relies on his best friend Starla, and on the idea that his “treatments” will one day make him normal. And then a new boy named Web moves into town and he’s about to turn Jonathan’s world upside down
‘ve been waiting forever to read this book. It had libraries, demons, magic and what have you. It seems like it would be the perfect book for me, so I was very excited to start reading it. But, at the same time I was worried that it was going to fall short of my expectations. That’s always the fear with books that are hyped up — that they aren’t as good as you think they’re going to be.
I was excited about this book — A The Little Mermaid retelling? Sign me up! I didn’t know what to expect, except for the fact that the main character was to be the future Ursula. I didn’t have too many expectations other than it had magic and mermaids. There is little more that will please me than that.
