    Quill Tree Books, 9780063043435, February 8, 2022 (Middle Grade)

    “A wonderfully told tale of family, friendship, grief, and longing. A Comb of Wishes explores what happens when legend and real life meet. When a powerful mermaid is determined to reclaim what is rightfully hers, Kela begins her journey to discover what really happens when you get the one thing you most want in the world.”

    —Susan Williams, M. Judson Booksellers, Greenville, SC

    “Crick. Crack. This is a story. Filled with rich, Caribbean folklore, A Comb of Wishes is a lyrical song of a novel exploring family, culture, and the perseverance and power all young girls hold within themselves. Absolutely magical!”

    —Laura Graveline, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX


    “Lisa Stringfellow writes the mermaid book that I have been wanting and waiting for but better than I could ever expect. What will a mermaid do to get their prized comb back, what wish would you make knowing it could change everything, and how far would you go for family?”

    —Shoshonna Roberts, Maggie Mae’s Kids Bookshop, Gresham, OR
