Uh yeah, missed last week's. Was out most of the day with friends and was too tired to do the post. BUT now that we've discovered how to schedule posts (can you tell we're excited? XD) hopefully that will never happen again!
Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs
Publishing date: May 2010
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Goodreads | Amazon
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.
Alright, so I've never actually read Oh. My. Gods. or Goddess Boot Camp, but I've been meaning to! Forgive My Fins sounds a little like The Little Mermaid- which I LOVE since The Little Mermaid is one of my favourite fairy tales.
Oh, and isn't the cover so pretty? I love the colours! The only thing I don't really like is the model's lips. The blue colour scares me a little. I think I would rather it be pink like the title.
