When Diam Roceht woke up in a hospital with a head wound and a missing memory, she thought she was merely suffering from a concussion. However, clues to her mysterious past begin to emerge when her wound begins to heal too quickly and she has flashes of dreams about being underwater and a woman named Marlene.
Gradually, Diam discovers the truth: she is a mermaid, heir to the responsibilities of the Reef Warriors, who guard the reef from its enemies.
Afraid to trust her family and friends with this knowledge, Diam struggles not only with adjusting to her new identity, but also with the faltering relationship with her best friend, Jenna Reed.

She also learns about the training she will need and the challenges she will face as the next protector of the reef, when she finally becomes the mermaid she was born to be.
Will Diam accept her legacy and return to the water to live as a mermaid, the way her birth parents did? Will Jenna and Diam be able to stand up to the bullying Morgan Meeker and survive middle school?
