Neef, the official Changeling of Central Park, has survived a life-threatening quest, but that’s nothing compared to her first experiences at Changeling school. At Miss Van Loon’s, she meets her counterparts from all over Manhattan, learns the basics of diplomacy, and, of course, gets in trouble. This time Neef must recover the Magic Mirror, or else New York Harbor’s Mermaid Queen will turn all of the city’s fresh water to salt—and everything will die.

Neef goes to a school for mortal changelings, makes friends--and enemies, and embarks on a quest for the Mermaid Queen's magic mirror, which is missing.Light but enjoyable. Neef is an endearing character.
I looked up at the stars, twinkling with innocence. The moon was full tonight, gleaming at me like my life was a joke. I sighed, starting to weep uncontrollably. "It's not fair!" I shouted to the moon, cheeks damp with salty tears. A tiny splash rang through the night. I muttered to the person behind me,"Leave me in peace!" No sound. I looked behind me, getting frustrated. No one was there. Then the water turned darker, and then a mermaid broke the surface. She wore her purple hair in three braids, each held in a single purple ribbon. Her pale skin was easy to see, and she wore a simple bra with big shells. Her emerald eyes looked keen and sad with a deep understanding as they came in contact with my depressed amber eyes. "Who are you?" I asked quietly out of curiosity. "I am the Queen Amarh. You?" "Madison, or known as Maddy, Your Highness." "Please, no nonsense. I come up here often for privacy matters and to think. I didn't expect that a young mermaid like you would be here crying!" "Well.." Next part on next result!! ~Miah
