Maya Brooks lives a relatively normal life in the town of Montoya Beach in Washington state. The town is popular for beach folk, with cheap hotels and nice beach front homes on rent. The local aquarium thrives on these seasonal visitors, but it has begun to become clear that it is on a downhill slide into the red ink of debt. For Maya, this is a disaster; she had always loved aquatic creatures and always wanted to work with them. And it is no help that her single mother and two other siblings also need the income she manages to bring in from her work at Sea Kingdom. But when Maya finds a sick mermaid washed ashore, news leaks of this mythic creature inhabiting the aquarium. Visitors begin to flock in. Business has never been better. But mermaids were not meant to stay in one place eternally, let alone a small tank, displayed for human curiosity. The mermaid Cordelia is desperate to return home, and Maya is equally desperate to save the aquarium that she loves so dearly. Can she possibly save both? Or must one dream drown to save the other?

The ocean is deep. Deep and blue and mysterious. It has been explored for centuries, and still not all is known. One may wonder if the ocean will ever be truly explored, or if some measure of it shall permanently remain secret.

There are legends that focus on the sea. Stories of gods, of monsters, of men. And of fantastic creatures that are none of these. Tales tell of beautiful creatures, their bodies a cross between a human and a fish of sorts. They are known as mermaids.
