Unrequited love is hard enough when you're a normal teenager, but when you're half-human, half-mermaid Lily Sanderson, there's no such thing as a simple crush. Especially when your crush is gorgeous (and 100% human) Brody Bennett. The problem is, mermaids aren't the casual dating type - the instant they kiss someone, they 'bond' with them for life. When Lily's attempt to win Brody's love leads to an enormous case of mistaken identity, she finds herself facing a tidal wave of relationship more

Our customer reviews

FORGIVE MY FINS was my very first mermaid novel and I found it really refreshing to have yet another fantastic paranormal being to meet! We follow Lily who is not only a mermaid, but in fact princess of the sea. She spent the last year on land to learn more about life out of sea and to find her prince. She's living with her aunt and has a best friend and she also has a pretty normal human life to live. Our splashy narrator is an impulsive person. In general I liked her, her behaviour and way of thinking were sometimes just too infantile. The main focus lies on Lily's boy issues. There are two. Her true love Brody Bennett and neighbour Quince. Both guys are different in personality and it wasn't very difficult to root for one guy after only a few chapters. What I really liked about FORGIVE MY FINS is the concept of a kiss binding the mermaid Lily to her chosen prince. It's a very romantic and magical idea, which will of course confront Lily with a bunch of problems in the course of FORGIVE MY FINS. Tera Lynn Childs created an enjoyable concept of sea people and story, because there is no typical conflict between land and sea. Lily is even encouraged to spend some time on land and follow her dreams. So this story is told in a rather peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. We get an insight in both worlds and are provided with many details and customs of the sea folk. Join Lily and her chosen boy on their cheerful underwater adventures. If you haven't read a mermaid novel before you should definitely add this paranormal being to your reading repertoire. THE VERDICT I give it 3,5/5 stars. FORGIVE MY FINS is told in a light and humorous style which makes it an easy and fun read. The story around Lily feels aimed at a younger audience, yet I found it quite enjoyable for all YA more
