The Merworld Water Wars #1

Hook (pun totally intended): Take a fish-phobic girl, divide her by one hot merman, add a splash of his crazy ex-merbitch, and you get one stinky school year.
Sixteen-year-old Marina Valentine is a rule-stretcher in an uptight Texas seaside town. She’s hormonally challenged, curious to a fault, hates fish, and has a dating resume that makes the queen look like a slut. It’s not that guys don’t ask her out. They do. She just has an unfortunate reaction to dating—uncontrollable gags. It’s not exactly a turn on.
One by one, her oddball friends start disappearing—much to the joy of the snobby high school royals—and Marina fears she is a walking bull’s eye. Inquiries into their disappearances lead to startling, gag-worthy discoveries. Toss in an increasingly inconvenient attraction to one of the royals—who holds the key to solving the mystery…in his fin—and it’s an anti-fish girl’s worst nightmare come true. Soon, Marina finds herself at the center of a looming underwater war that’s really going to play games with her love life.
As time closes in—and the Merpeople officially come out of the ocean—Marina must choose between the lives of her friends, the future of an underwater utopia, and the life of her first love. There’s just one problem. Where does a love-shy, fish-phobic, non-mergirl even begin…especially when her enemy may be the one person she trusted above everyone else?

I loved this book. Usually I'm not interested in mermaid books, but this one is a exceeption.

It's impossible to not like Marina and her friends and how they are all so different but still great friends that understand each other, or at least try to.

There's so many funny moments, funny joked and obviously Marina's funny puns. No matter how dire a situation was, she still had a joke for everything.

I found the book intriguing and certainly not predictable, so at least for me it was impossible to not finish this book.

And not forgetting about the romance. I loved the romance, not overly done, not too fast, and not too silly. Marina didn't forget who she was just because she was crushing in someone, and she still had to deal with the problems of their relationship in her own way and had to overcome her sickness with all things pertaining romance.

Valenyuck day anyone?
