One thought on “Flipping the Scales

  1. John Barker

    Pete Tarsi s debut Young Adult novel Flipping the Scales is a wonderfully refreshing and entertaining mermaid story with one foot firmly planted in the familiar surroundings of an island beachside community, and the other foot or is it fin submerged in a magical underwater world populated by mers as the story s mermaids and mermen prefer to call themselves The tale s two immensely likeable leads initially don t fare well at all when removed from their natural habitats, and the story gets a lot o [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This book is beyond adorable It s a very enjoyable tail haha about a human and a mermaid that switch places I loved Tarsi s twist on the mermaid myth, and how he made it completely his own Mermaids are able to come to land for one day during the full moon When two mers, Lorelei and Marina, come on land one month, disaster strikes when Marina s tail goes missing Enter Meredith, a studious seventeen year old human who accidentally stu [...]

    One day, Marina It will be like no other experience Flipping the Scales is a magical tale of friendship, loyalty, and the ability to adapt The story is set during summer break, where Meredith is sent to spend her vacation with her best friend, Jill, and Jill s cousin, Hailey They live on a private beach, a perfect place for two mermaids, Lorelei and Marina, to disrobe their tails and spend one day of fun amongst humans But when Meredith finds the shimmering object and puts it on, she accidently [...]

    When serious and studious Meredith and her carefree friend Jill go to an island to stay with Jill s cousin, Hailey, for a few weeks during the summer, something unexpected happens Meredith finds a skirt, tries it on, and transforms into a mermaid.Honestly, I wasn t sure I was going to be able to finish this book at first because Hailey is very over the top with her teen lingo Everything is an acronym OMG, TTTH, SWIM, etc I have teens and they sometimes text that way, but don t really speak that [...]

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review Overall, I thought this book was a sweet, summery tale of friendship and finding yourself that young readers and mermaid fans would enjoy The writing was good and the book reads very fast is easy to follow, though I did have a few problems with the romance s and connecting to some of the characters I will have a full review up on my blog soon

    Not bad, it was quite interesting and well written But I honestly didn t care for Meredith, she was a generic sheeple, kind of stuck up and annoying.

    Some of you just may remember that episode of The Smurfs where Smurfette put on these magical dancing shoes and then couldn t get them off her feet and was forced to keep dancing and dancing Well, that episode was based on The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Anderson who also wrote The Little Mermaid Since neither of these stories as originally written had the sort of Disneyesque ending that people prefer these days, we ll end the comparison with Flipping the Scales by Pete Tarsi right here Just hol [...]

    Flipping the Scales is a switching places fantasy aimed at young adult readers Although the characters are 17, the situations and language are very tame and suitable for ages 10 and up.Meredith is a studious 17 year old, going into her senior year of high school and focused on getting into a good college She doesn t spend a whole lot of time having fun, and packed mostly books in her suitcase for a two week summer vacation Her best friend Jill wants her to relax and have fun, to go with the flow [...]

    I picked up Flipping the Scales because I was looking for a light read The cover brought to mind the TV series H20 Just Add Water, mainly because of the orange tail So I decided to give Flipping the Scales a go.I have to say that I did like how Flipping the Scales was different from other mermaid stories Jill and especially Hailey were well versed in various mermaid stories and used that knowledge to try to help Meredith when she grew a tail However, the stories the girls had heard weren t accur [...]

  16. Andrew

    This is a refreshing YA fantasy novel in which teenagers sound like teenagers to my high school teacher ears anyway and still have depth Even secondary characters leap off the page and have vitality The tale itself only suffers from being part of a longer story and leaving you with a taste for the sequel, as some of the most compelling questions remain unanswered That said, it still strongly merits a read if you are a teen, know one, or ever were one and know the angst of not feeling like you be [...]
