So, I was able to have a chance to sit down and finish reading once all of our household goods got shipped, we traveled for 4 days and we got set up, and now finally I am able to put up my review.  
This book was phenomenal.  What else is there to say? The writing was fantastic.  The story was great, and it kept my interest. 

When you are looking for a book that has a fresh take on something that we all love, mermaids, you wonder how its going to be incorporated in a way you haven't thought of before.  I wasn't sure what to expect with Sapphire City, but I knew from looking at the cover, that it was about a mermaid.  I don't spoil myself with the excerpts or blurbs before I read, it spoils it for me.  
I really think that Stella did a Stellar job with dealing with the challenges that she faced, and that in the end, she came out a great girl.  Now, I don't really like to post a ton of spoilers with my reviews, or re-write the book, so I keep it short and simple.  
This is a great book for a young adult reader.  The language was clean and you weren't reading alot of smut.  I would recommend this book for a 9-12th grader.
