Keeper, by Kathi Appelt

Summary: To ten-year-old Keeper, this moon is her chance to fix all that has gone wrong…and so much has gone wrong.

A blue moon calls the mermaids to gather at the sandbar, and that’s exactly where she is headed — in a small boat, in the middle of the night, with only her dog, and a seagull named Captain.  416 pgs.
