"Gurtler's writing unfurls with the exquisite grace of a flower. Readers will cheer Tess's triumphant awakening as she blooms in the shade of insecurity, family tragedy, and sibling rivalry to discover a strength and beauty all her own." —Sarah Ockler, bestselling author of Fixing Delilah and Twenty Boy Summer
SECRETS BENEATH THE SEA
Series: Mermaid Kingdom
“Like most 12-year-old girls, Shyanna, Rachel, and Cora deal with the daily dramas of growing up. Unlike most 12-year-old girls, they deal with it underwater as mermaids. The allure of life on land is a constant presence in the life of a mermaid, and friendships are tested with secrets, lies, and jealousy.” For ages 7-10.

“I’m so excited to be the author of a new MERMAID series from Capstone Young Readers, called SECRETS BENEATH THE SEA. This series is intended for 7-10 year olds and it’s glittery and super fun! The SECRETS BENEATH THE SEA is a hardcover compilation of three stories told from the point of view of three different mermaids, who happen to be best friends. Their stories are also available separately as paperbacks and in library bindings in February 2015. The hardcover compilation will be available March, 2015. The illustrator Katie Wood has amazing drawings of these mermaids and the adventures they have together. I hope you love them as much as I loved writing them!”
