Review by: Jennifer Ladd on Jan. 14, 2013 :
Having read one of M.C. Arvanitis’ children’s’ books in the past I kind of had a feeling what to expect: a cute story with some great lessons. I was not disappointed.

Having grown up on Disney movies, I think that every little girl at one point or another has wished that she was a mermaid; but never really wondered what mermaids wish for when there’s no prince around. I would never have guessed wings.

Nadeea the mermaid is just one of many unique characters in Forbidden Wings but she is by far my favorite. She was born different from other mermaids and as a result was bullied. She desperately wants wings so that she can fly like faeries. I loved that Nadeea didn’t wish to be like the mermaids that bullied her, but wished to stand out even more.

She goes on a quest to find someone who can make her wish come true and ends up not only making a lot of new friends but learning some important lessons about who she is and life in general. I really thought that this was a great book for kids and would greatly recommend it.
