About the Book

It's a fresh start for Delores Walker when she boards a Greyhound bus bound for Florida, leaving the Bronx far behind. She's headed for sunny Weeki Wachee Springs, a frayed roadside attraction in danger of becoming obsolete with the opening of Walt Disney's latest creation only miles up the road. Always more suited for a life underwater, Delores joins a group of other aquatic hopefuls in this City of Live Mermaids, where she discovers a world of sequined tails and amphibious theme shows that even Disney couldn't dream up. It's in this fantastic place of make-believe and reinvention that Delores Walker becomes Delores Taurus, Florida's most unlikely celebrity.

Bringing together an eccentric assortment of outcasts, poseurs, and underdogs, this wise and poignant novel conjures up a time in America when anything was possible, especially in the Sunshine State. A story of family, chasing dreams and finding your way, Swim To Me will have you believing the impossible -- even in mermaids from the Bronx.
