About the Book: 

In a world that values appearance, Jane has always felt overlooked. After losing her inheritance as well as her parents, she proposes to the vain, but dashing Peter. When he is kidnapped by a nefarious mermaid, she is determined to bring him home. With the help of a mysterious crone and a grumpy seal, can Jane prove to herself, and others, that beauty is only skin deep? Vera Brosgol’s newest graphic novel Plain Jane and the Mermaid will sweep readers into a dangerous underwater world.
