Seasoned narrator Frankie Corzo delivers another satisfying and beautiful performance with her heartfelt and nimble narration. Peruvian-American teenager Veronica has hip dysplasia; being in the water is the only way she feels relief. Suddenly, she discovers the opportunity to become a mermaid performer when auditions open at Mermaid Cove, an aquatic tourist destination. Veronica's parents don't approve of this at all; they worry about the physical demands on her. Her parents worry about everything: boys, jobs, college, school--and the list goes on. Corzo successfully delivers the voices of characters with various accents and timbres, who deal with varying degrees of complicated feelings. Spanish words and phrases are narrated smoothly. The captivating story coupled with Corzo's narration results in a satisfying audiobook. A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
