Review: Forgive My Fins - By Tera Lyn Childs

Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it’s not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but when you’re half human, half mermaid like Lily, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid – she’s a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems – like her obnoxious, biker boy neighbor Quince Fletcher – but it has that one major perk – Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type – when they “bond,” it’s for life.

When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned
This was definitely a cute read; and this time that's actually a good thing. This book was just fun to read, lovable to say the least. I will admit I got a little annoyed with Lily's cluelessness, but aren't we all a little clueless sometimes. And Quince? Aww poor guy. I felt his pain. I loved the happy ending, and the twist at the end leading to a part 2. I definitely don't mind reading more about this world and these characters. If your looking for a fun and enjoyable read, with a hint of romance, I'd recommend this book to anyone. Gonna have to buy part 2 soon... Can't wait to read it! 4 stars from me!

  1. Ooo, I just read this one! It was so adorable. I agree with you that Lily's cluelessness got annoying at times--I mean, she's just so oblivious about Quince. Great review!
