Coming Soon: Identity by Annabelle Batie


No, Identity is not a boring self-help nonfiction book to guide you to your "true self"...

It's an epic Christian YA fantasy romance all about (you'll never guess)...MERMAIDS!!! Augh, I dunno about y'all, but I adore mermaids, and I know we're all gonna adore this intriguing short novel by young author Annabelle Batie!

 

about the book

Maria Brooks is just a plain orphan girl with a mysterious past. On the day of Maria’s sixteenth birthday, everything seems normal. From being required to do chores all day to being bullied by her own friends, nothing seems to be amiss. But when Maria goes swimming at the beach the next day, she discovers a secret about herself she didn’t even know: she’s a mermaid.

As Maria explores her newfound ability to change from mermaid to human, she finds herself in the midst of an underwater war that may just contain the secret to her past. Mixed with drama and fantasy; romance and mystery; this book is sure to hold you in suspense through the very end.

Hooray for Annabelle! I don't think I've read a mermaid story before (not counting Andersen's Little Mermaid fairytale...which had a really sad ending, now that I think about it lol.)
