Eyewitness Account: This account of what happens to abused and molested children is heartrending. Luce’s character is so easy to empathize with. The use of male images, the sea, metamorphosis, and song add to the enchantment of this tale. Even to the most detached reader, the societal structure and hierarchy the mermaids create for themselves are a very realistic look at how abused people will tend to treat each other.
