Book: Forgive My Fins
Authoress: Tera Lynn Childs
Pages: @304 Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books/Harper Collins
Goodreads: Forgive My Fins
Genre: YA | Fantasy | Mermaids
My summary: Think Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) featuring a modern-day teenage Ariel (The Little Mermaid) named Lily. Lily's affection are ill-placed BUT what is it going to take for her to figure that out and will she lose the right guy while chasing the wrong guy?
My say: This is pure fun. Perfect quick, light, foamy beach read. Plus, it features a sweet yet salty biker boy named Quince. I love characters like Quince, because I love guys like Quince. Guys who hide giant hearts behind big and tough bravadoes.
My favorite things:
- I love that Tera bypasses the ho-hum of, "Whoa mermaid," and delves right into the what ifs.
- Lily swears in fish. Example: "Son of a Swordfish"
- Their scrumptious kiss made my fins (I mean toes) curl.
My star rating: 4 out of 5 stars; The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was Lily. I wanted to slap her fishy sometimes.
My kiddie-o-meter: No sex or curse words but they do allude to Quince being experienced.
My final say: Fins are Forever (part 2) comes out next summer. I can't wait. I need more Quince.
