Book Review

My favourite character is Naya because she is optimistic.

This series is all about mermaids who solve different mysteries. The Midnight Realm is adventurous and a little bit surprising!

My favourite character in this story is Naya because she is optimistic and I loved reading about her adventures.

In my opinion it is a great book.

If you are age 6, 7 or 5  years old I recommend you read this book because I think you would love it.
