Forgive my Fins
by Tera Lynn Childs
Lily is a mermaid - a Thalassinian princess who recently discovered she's half human - and she's been living on land and going to Seaview High School hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its drawbacks, like her obnoxious biker-boy neighbor, Quince, but it has one major perk: Brody, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. The problem is, mermaids aren't really casual daters - when they "bond," it's for life. So when an attempt to win Brody's love leads to a tsunami-size case of mistaken identity, Lily is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails as smoothly as you planned.
Loved it! Lily is a quirky, lovable teen. Awkward with out her "sealegs," Lily just cannot seem to get things right in the guy department! When the unthinkable happens (and I won't go into detail as I don't want to spoil this before it comes out), Lily must learn to get along with her previous nemesis, Quince. Full of conflicting emotions that are heartfelt, warm, and touching, this breezy tale enthralls and entertains! A great would be beach read. I love the descriptions of Thalassinia, too. With a killer cliff hanger in the epilogue, I cannot wait to read book 2!
