A Comb of Wishes

Written by Lisa Stringfellow

A Comb of Wishes is a tale of longing, revenge, and redemption told from alternating perspectives: a grieving young girl and a vindictive mermaid. Young Kela, the likable protagonist, misses her mom dearly. When an unexpected discovery offers a way to bring her back to life, Kela jumps at it. She soon discovers the truth behind the saying, “be careful what you wish for.” After a series of mistakes, Kela makes amends–with the help of friends, family, and what she knows in her heart to be true. This is a powerful and magical story based in a Caribbean island setting.
