Secrets of Carrick: Merrow

By Ananda Braxton-Smith

Life doesn’t just grow you up and leave you there, it keeps beating you into different shapes, like the cliffs. The people of Carrick have been whispering behind Neen’s back for most of her life; ever since her father drowned and her mother disappeared. The townspeople say her mother was a merrow who has returned to her real home in the ocean. But if the villagers are right, then what does this make Neen? This pitiless summer, all the talk will end in trouble. All Neen wants is the truth.
