It’s Delta’s sixteenth birthday. She gets a coming-of-age present, but it comes with a condition- she has to find her soul mate and prove she’s worthy of him in a week, or she will lose her adult tail it and it will stay pale. Delta meets various mermen from Mr Slob to Mr Useless, and sees their faults are hers. Then she meets Jonty, and realises she wants to be a better mermaid.
