Siren - A story of friendship

Siren - A story of friendship

I wrote the this story for an reluctant reader who was interested in the Ancient Greek Myths, however the story has a contemporary setting. Athene is not a 'fairy-tale' mermaid; she has grown up believing that Sirens and Humans are enemies. After being rescued by Nathaniel, Athene questions that belief. Is friendship between a Human and a Siren possible? The story would be a useful resource for PSHCE and used to explore the theme of friendship and trust. Environmental issues, i.e. marine conservation and pollution, are also raised in the story. *In the story, the reader discovers that Nathaniel is afraid of his bullying and violent father.
