REVIEW: Three sixteen-year-old girls wind up stranded on an island. When one of the girls slips and slides into a remote pool under the island's volcano, the other two follow, and the three find themselves standing in the pool just as the full moon passes over. The next day, the girls discover that as soon as they touch water, they transform into mermaids with special powers! Every episode brings new and exciting mermaid adventures.
OPINION: It reminded me of a modern day Australian teen version of the 80's movie Splash, which I remember really liking. This show on the other hand felt kind of cheesy, but it works since kids like my 9 year old niece are hooked! It offers wholesome and fantastical fun, since what little girl doesn't have mermaid princess fantasies at some point?
IDEAS: Have teens/tweens write a paragraph or draw a picture about what special power they'd like were they to get caught in a magical location under the full moon.
