About this title


Eager to escape her stepfather's scolding, Sukey, the hardworking daughter of poor South Carolina Islanders, unwittingly conjures up Mama Jo, a beautiful, brown-skinned mermaid, who gives Sukey a special gift.

From the Publisher:

Sukey's new step-pa is a mean, bossy man. Every day Sukey wakes at dawn to work in the garden. All her step-pa ever does is watch her and yell if she so much as stops to fan herself. Sukey's ma calls him Mister Jones. Sukey prefers the name "Mister Hard-Times."

Son one day, Sukey runs away to her secret place by the ocean. There, she calls up Mama Jo, a beautiful black mermaid. Mama Jo's got a surprise for Sukey; a magical kingdom beneath the sea without time or pain. But it's also without people. Is it really better than the world above?
