The Salt for Air hardback is here!

All the Salt for Air info you could ever want:
Seventeen-year-old Ellie dreams of mermen. She writes fanfiction about them and spends time in underwater kingdoms in her imagination, trying to escape the sad reality: she is an orphan. And not only that, but she’s bullied every day at school -she’s a nerd, she hates sports, she loves books and she used to be overweight. What’s not to bully?
One day, the bullies go too far. They try to drown her, but at the last minute an otherworldly creature shows up in the water. He keeps her breathing and tells her to live: “How will you be able to save anyone if you can’t even save yourself?”
She thinks it was a dream, but the emerald-eyed merman boy who rescued her appears in her school the next day. Is he really the exiled prince of an ancient kingdom that’s on the brink of utter destruction? And is he asking her to save him? Or is something far more sinister and deadly lurking in the water that surrounds her little Greek town?
When myth and reality collide, can love save their lives?


What readers say:

A story that makes your heart grow.-M.B, a reader
Loved it! I loved the author’s development of character, plotline, and conflict in each of her books. I read ALOT of YA, with similar genre appeal, and M.C. Frank writes with such a uniquevoice, making her novels more compelling and engaging than most others. Thankyou for sharing your gift!

I really liked the refreshing twist on mermaids and mermans.
-Zahara Porter

I LOVE IT TO DEATH!!!!!!! Like oh my, that was good, scratch that, amazing! The plot was absolutely fantastic and the characters are so wellwritten they felt real. I love the fangirling like yassss and the part abouther being bullied. It was so heart warming and realistic, I love it.

Please write more!
-Brynn from Swoon Reads

Great story, witty main character and some steamy love. I couldn’t waitto finish reading, and have now stayed up way past my bedtime trying to finishthis book!

This book reminds me of Fangirl, although I enjoyed this more.

I so very love how the book promoted the strengths of a bullied person,bringing out the positive. Too often we see characters turning to self harm andeverything else negative once things start looking bad. Salt for Air, however,gave a strong message that things can be different, a message which I believemust have come from true experience. […] I can’t believe I read the whole story in just two days (some 70% of it in oneday!).
