Diving Board by Alison Glass

On the one hand, Diving Board is about a young mermaid – her adventures and growth with sea friends in their fanciful somewhat imaginary seaside home. Off the coast of a tiny island bustling with miniature inhabitants – where it’s always summer – she swirls around inlet pools of brilliant sunset colors and beloved blues. Starfish and sea creatures are both friends and decoration. Afternoon tea parties with marmalade and tiny cookies are plentiful. The vintage sea shore vibe of the village, with a boardwalk and rows of colorful houses, make it the perfect backdrop for her imagination. Sunsets and sunrises last longer here than typical, because why should they not? The brilliant colors define her radiant world and time to just be goes on forever.
