| 𝟮𝟭𝘅 𝗙𝗘𝗔𝗧𝗨𝗥𝗘𝗗 · An Asian sci-fi retelling of The Little Mermaid that steers the tale you know in a whole new funky direction | An ambitious teen mermaid must venture beyond her guarded underwater city and brave the polluted, climate-ravaged wilds of the Indian Ocean, in order to find her human soulmate and forge a better future for her people. Except the "prince", "Sea Witch" and the future aren't quite what she expects. *** The city of Calliathron is the epitome of modern sea life--a hubbub of color and activity contained within a glorious coral atoll in the Indian Ocean. Yet, the ripples of the changing world beyond seep in with increasing force, bleaching color and darkening minds--but not Dea Rhodoreef's mind. That day, all Dea could think about was walking her sea cow to the seagrass meadows. Who said life's easy for a high school teen? Even more so when one is a pastel goth gamer mermaid trying to scrape by in a modest mobile home with her grumpy grandmother, who's always complaining about the "human infestation". Maybe the troubled city-state will embrace a new dawn when merpeople and humans co-exist--a future that Dea is determined to work hard for. Noble causes aside, just getting to see a notorious human is number one on her bucket list. Now, as if school, a part-time job and a looming political career aren't enough, a chonky sea cow has been following her for days. It's time to return him to the wild--not like she'd run into a human.
