Description:

The people of Carrick Island have been whispering behind Neen's back ever since her father drowned and her mother disappeared. The townspeople say her mother was a merrow and has returned to the ocean. Neen, caught in her hazy new in-between self-not a child, but not quite grown up-can't help but wonder if the villagers are right. But if her mother was a merrow, then what does that make Neen?

Quotes:

The author has done detailed research on the customs and language of Carrick, and this novel perfectly captures the harshness and beauty of that culture. This exquisitely told work examines the power of stories and how a well-told tale can transcend truth and history. Readers will want to curl up at the feet of this narrator and listen to her spellbinding account., School Library Journal

This quiet, introspective novel from Australian writer Braxton-Smith sparkles with lingering imagery and expressive writing. Readers will be easily drawn into Neen's determined efforts to piece together a true understanding of the mother she barely knew, whose story has been muddied by the unkind stories and rumors shared by locals., Publishers Weekly

Though she sprinkles her account with Manx, Neen's no tour guide to the Middle Ages but an authentic Everyteen whose hard, beautiful world readers will recognize. A sparkling paean to the stories we tell-plain and embroidered, fantastical, amazing, true-that get us through the night., Kirkus

Lush with dazzling detail-from the silky swells of the Irish Seato purring honeyed hives-Marrey Cove thrums with life. Neen's narrative, crackling with memories, folklore, and flashes of humor, earnestly confronts both the secrets we keep and the truths we seek. A singular story about the singularity of stories-entrancing and extraordinary., Booklist

...MERROW is a beautifully coming-of-age audiobook. Brownhill's Irish lilt brings the story to life..., AudioFile Magazine
