Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the MisteBook - 2010
"An easy sell to girls looking for a friendship story with more than a touch of make-believe." - Kirkus reviews
When Emily Windsnap discovers an old diamond ring during a class hunt for trinkets, how is she supposed to know that the ring is half the key to unlocking an ancient curse by Neptune himself? Now, with the ring stuck firmly on her hand, Emily finds herself under a new curse: in just a few days, she'll cease to be half-human and half-mermaid and must say good-bye to one parent forever. Can she possibly find the other missing ring that will break all the curses? Is there anyone who can help her -- before it's too late?

Emily enjoys being half-mermaid, but her Mother has a difficult time processing that Emily won't be having academic studies any longer. Emily's parents start to argue a lot, and she becomes worried that they will break up. Emily then finds a ring that was King Neptune's wedding ring, which had become a cursed ring. Out of anger, King Neptune decides to ban humans and mermaids becoming married ever again. Emily is forced to either become fully human or fully mermaid. Emily must locate the other ring to break the curse and to keep being half-mer, but will she be able to before it's too late?

"I can't believe I ended up here," I said, looking at the ring on my finger and smiling. I could feel its warmth smile back at me. "I know I've had a few lucky breaks in my life, among all the crazy stuff! But surely that's about as much of a coincidence as you can get."
