Mermaid Mary Margaret by Lynn E. Hazen
When Mary's grandfather dies suddenly, she travels with her grandmother on a cruise for the elderly her grandparents had booked to Greece for their 50th wedding anniversary. Mary is selected to go with her grandmother on the cruise as she is the youngest and her single mother was unable to travel. Mary keeps a journal of the daily activities and it's through her eyes that we experience everything she sees. She truly wishes to be a mermaid and each of the entries brings us closer to why that is. At the close of the book is a lesson about longitude and latitude. The journal entries are short though some words may be hard for young readers to understand.
