Seaweed reminded me a little bit of The Thirteenth Year,-which is a movie I adore- they had some similarities but Seaweed made it's own story. Seaweed was a story that had so many things going on - No dull moments, and there were lots of little twists and turns.
Dori was an impulsive character, it sometimes seemed like she made irrational decisions, but it was really hard to stay mad at her, because even if they weren't the best choices, they still lead up to something good or pleasant surprises. Tor was such a cute guy, but he still had an edge when it came to protecting Dori or having to fight for her - literally. I also really loved the way the author managed the whole mermaid world - a bit weird on the family ties, if you ask me. But it was still creative and the whole process of getting a tail seemed pretty original to me. I have read very few mermaid books but I definitely want to read more of them; they all manage to be mysterious and fascinating at the same time.
My favorite thing about Seaweed was the writing. They way Dori's head was made was really fun and entertaining. I liked her little inner jokes and sarcastic comments. I carried a smiley face through most of the book. I like quirky characters, and Dori's mind was definitely appealing. Seaweed is a perfect summer read, especially if you're near the beach ;)
