Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159858359X, Paperback)

Some things you just can't say, even to your parents. "Dad, did you ever want to be a mermaid?" Nope. Don't say it. Not if you're a boy. You gotta keep it inside. Maybe thirteen-year-old Todd Winslow is the best diver at summer camp. If only diving could save him. Underwater is a much kinder world, a secret mermaid world that no one else can know about - not Dad, and definitely not Brad, the camp's numero uno bad boy. Todd tries to fit in, playing nice with flirty model-wannabe Sylvie and shunning nature-nerd Olivia - but you can only fool people for so long. Brad is watching every move, ready to expose all that's different about Todd. Then there's the doll thing. And Dad finds out. How will Todd survive now? PRAISE FOR IF YOU BELIEVE IN MERMAIDS.DON'T TELL ".A welcome and courageous book that speaks out for young people to be true to who they are." -Alex Sanchez, author of Rainbow Boys and So Hard to Say "Finally-a kid-friendly middle-grade novel that disputes the myth that there is just one way of being a boy." -Catherine Tuerk, M.A., R.N., C.S., Nurse Psychotherapist " ... A refreshing look into the heart of a great kid who views the world through a slightly different lens." -Kathleen Jeffrie Johnson, author of Target, The Parallel Universe of Liars, and Gone After winning the kindergarten jumping-rope contest, A. A. Philips grew up to become a writer, therapist, and teacher of literature with degrees from Middlebury, Harvard, and the University of Southern Maine.
