Overview

Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but for Lily Sanderson, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily has a secret, and it’s not her huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. 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 she discovered three years ago that her mother was actually a human, Lily finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been going to Seaview High ever since. Living on 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 finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

Forgive My Fins was a really cute story that people my age (14) can really understand. It's all about the love you realize was always there even when you thought it wasn't. The sea slang in the book is used constantly (ex: carp instead of crap) but it just adds to the story. I loved it a ton. If you think this review was helpful, please rate it!

This book was very cute. I have to admit that I found the fish slang to be a little hokey but other then that I enjoyed the story. The main character, Princess Waterlilly "Lily" is strong, loyal, and extremely stubborn, all good qualities depending on the situation. The only thing I found frustrating was her persistent denial regarding how she feels about Quince/Brody and how they feel about her. But I won't spoil the story for you by diving into that anymore. Quince was amazing! He is the other main focus of the story and I figure if Lily doesn't want him I'll take him :) The rest of the supporting characters were very well developed and really added to the atmosphere of the world Lily lives in and the situation she is faced with. Lily is seventeen and quickly approaching her eighteenth birthday. It is on that birthday that she must be bonded "kind of like marriage" or she will lose her rights to the thrown. Lily is the only daughter to the King of Thalassinia, a mer-kingdom located about 45 miles east, off the coast of Florida. Lily has spent the last three years on land living with her mother's sister. After discovering that her mother was a human she wanted to learn more about that world. From the first time she saw Brody Bennett she was hooked (pun totally intended). Brody is hot (bonus), and at home in the water so he would make the perfect mer-mate as far as Lily is concerned. Quince is Lily's next door neighbor and he drives her crazy. He has done everything in his power to make Lily miserable for the last three years. But through a cruel twist of fate she ends up being bonded to him instead of her crush. Now she has to convince everyone that they should be separated before the bond becomes permanent and Quince becomes a merman forever. This was my first book by Tera Lynn Childs but I have heard good things about her other series, "Oh. My. Gods." If "Forgive my Fins" is any indication then I will have to pick them up. "Forgive my Fins," was a fun summer read and I recommend it to all. If you do enjoy this book you will be happy to learn that there is a sequel, "Fins are Forever" is set to release summer of 2011! http://bringmeanotherbook.blogspot.com/

I absolutely adore this book! And I give it 4.5 stars(: It's something different from all of this vampire books, I read this book very quickly took me like six hours or so, I'm a very fast reader so don't make you think that it's normal lol. I just ordered the second book because I fell in love with the characters, I love the world that Ms. Childs created it was so fun. This book has it's moments where things are weird and a little boring but as soon as that happens something crazy turns around and slaps you back into something wonderful. This book is very fun and the characters are very likable and even relatable. I would defiantly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something new. I was honestly getting sick of all the vampire books although I do adore them but I've just read so many that this book was very refreshing and I am so excited for the next two. Hope this helps you.

I have a confession to make. I love mermaids. So anything that has mermaids in it, I want to read, and I'll probably love. Even if the writing is horrible, I'm still going to squeal like a little kid because there are mermaids in it. Blame Disney and The Little Mermaid. And now you can also blame Forgive My Fins, because it was amazing. My first instinct when I finished this was to fan girl squeak and just give it a five-star rating, but I'm going to try to be a little more objective, and not let my undying love for anything under the sea to get in the way. One thing I appreciated about Fins was that every question I had was eventually answered. While I know this is going to be a series (or at least one sequel), it felt like a complete novel. There were no dangling loose ends between the main characters. I had no lingering doubts or questions. And I loved it. I hate when a book just has so many threads flapping in the wind, waiting to be tied up in more installments. The intricacies of Child's mermaids were explained to the fullest, such as how they transform, how they hide their mermaid-ness, etc. (My only lingering curiosity was how exactly her parents managed to have a kid without "bonding"? No kissing? Seems suspicious.Or, at least, very unromantic.) And speaking of the mermaids, how awesome are they? The can transform from mermaid, to finkini (scaly bikini), to human with no problem. They love sushi and eat with underwater chopsticks, called seasticks. And the slang. I laughed so hard at the swear word replacement. Carp for crap. Frogging for, well.you know. As for the story and the characters themselves, it was all just so cute. I quickly became addicted to the conflict between Lily and Quince, and I stayed up way too late to enjoy their bantering. Quince's feelings were painfully obvious to me, even from the very first few pages. I spent a lot of time swooning over him, and wanting to smack Lily at the same time for being so completely oblivious. My only true problems were with elements of the story itself. *Beware - spoilers ahead!* I did think that Lily's father delaying their separation three times was a little much. Two was funny, but by the third time, I was just rolling my eyes. I also wish Lily had found out Brody was a scumbag in a much more dramatic way. Not just a light bulb clicking on because he was, well, fascinated about her being a mermaid. I wanted it to be a kiss with no sparks, or his "player" tendencies to come out right in front of her. As for her reuniting with Quince at the end, I think it also needed a little spice. "Woohoo!" I mean, really? Who says "Woohoo?" I wanted drama, and romance, and tears, and confessions of undying love, and passionate kissing. And all I got was a 'woohoo' and some twirling. So maybe there was a kiss, but it wasn't the fireworks of realized love that I was hoping for. And what was with the overly sinister ending with Doe? It just felt.really weird and out of place. I know it's probably setting up for the sequel, but it was really jarring, and totally threw me out of the happy Quince and Lily mode. Regardless, I cannot wait for the sequel. I'm picking it up as soon as it comes out! The Final Word: A cute, light romance that's a quick read, and even more quickly addicting. If you like mermaids at all, it's a must-read.

Forgive My Fins was a beautifully written mermaid tale. The characters and magical essence of the story was absorbing. Also, the mermaid lingo was a plus. The usage of ocean terms were entertaining and very original. Lily, was a unique protagonist. Her insecure, complex personality and frizzy hair didn't fit the stereotype of a "glamorous" mermaid. I appreciated how Tera twisted the way I perceived mermaids. However, it didn't take away from Lily's hidden raw beauty and great energy. Since she was a princess, it was her duty to find a lover to bond with, before her eighteenth birthday. I loved the whole idea of bonding a mermaid and a human together. Very romantic. Reminded me of my favorite Disney movie, The Little Mermaid. Now, instead of her bonding with her hunky crush Brody, she was stuck with Quince, her annoying neighbor. Quince's personality was awesome. To Lily he was annoying, but I found him charming and endearing. Their cat and mouse relationship was amusing. I liked when he made fun of Lily. It showed how attentive and willing he was to deal with her situation. I routed for him and hoped she would warm up to the idea of Quince as her mate. The novel was a bit predictable at times, but it didn't take away from the story. I was still interested and look forward to continuing this series. After all, Tera left us with a cliffhanger that left me wanting more. Overall, if you're a fan of mermaids, you'll want to pick this one up!

I absolutely loved this book. It was fun and quirky, leaving me wondering just what was going to happen to princess lily in her life-on-land adventure. A wonderful tale of a mermaid,her crush, and the pesky neighbor who always tends to ruin her romantic progress, this book has just the right amount of fun and a suprising young love. :)

I just finished Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs, and can I say amazing!!?! The book was humorous, witty, and everything you want in a love story. I couldn't put this book down. I started it Saturday and read it all day today. I love Quince, he was witty, hilarious, and the boy every girl should fall for. Except for the peeping Tom issue he has... He always kept Lily on her toes when he was around and brought out the hidden person in her. Lily, of course, had some issues with him. He tormented her all the time for the three years that she was on land. Lily, on the other hand I had some issues with. I get it, your first love, all i you want is for that "perfect" guy to notice you. Love makes you blind, and that's exactly what it did to Lily. She didn't notice Quince at all, except when he was tormenting her. The constant Brody obsession going on in Lily's mind and her life was a little annoying but all in all an amazing book!! I even painted my toes a nice Sea Greenish Blue in honor of the book! I cannot wait to see where the mysterious epilogue takes us in the next book Fins are Forever coming June 28th! Save the date!!

Ever since I first came across a synopsis of Forgive my Fins, I'd been dying to read it, so when I could never seem to find it in any book store, I was so dissapointed. But now that I've finally read it (I won it in a contest!), I definitly think that it was well worth the wait, because it was fantastic!I've always loved mermaids (when I was little, whenever anyone would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always answer that I wanted to be a mermaid lol), but I've found that the YA genre has been lacking on books about mermaids, but this thankfully seems to be changing! Tera Lynn Childs has really struck gold, in my opinion, with Forgive my Fins because it combines everything that I love in a book; love, romance, humour, and of course mermaids as the supernatural creature of choice!Lily was such a cute character! I loved her from the beginning of the book, and all of her adorable ocean themed expressions made her that much more loveable. I found her to be so endearing and sweet! She was definitley very confused about her emotions though, and there were some times when I found her to be very stubborn, but as the book progressed, she was able to sort out her feelings and realize what she really wanted, who she was really falling for and who the right guy was for her.I definitley liked the character Quince in Forgive My Fins. He totally reminded me of that annoyong little boy who pulls on a girls pigtails when her likes her, but in a very good way. He kind of tries to have a sort of care-free, bad boy (he rides a motorcycle, which is pretty much a must-have for any bad boy lol) attitude about him, but you can see that he's such a sweetheart underneath his pigtail tugging exterior. As a whole, Forgive My Fins was a great read! Tera Lynn Childs writing was great and definitley made me laugh! As I mentioned before, I loved the ocean and fish themed expressions and puns that were riddled throughout the book, it added just a little something special to it, which I really liked! If you haven't yet read Forgive My Fins, I would definitley, 100% recommend picking it up! I seriously loved everything about this book and am now anxiously awaiting it's sequel, Fins Are Forever!

Forgive My Fins is an adorable tale about a young mermaid living her teenage years on land. It's filled with fun terminology and an adorable love story that I look forward to reading more about these memorable characters!Lily Sanderson is half mermaid and half human, she has lived in the sea for all of her life and she wants to get a taste of the world that her mother comes from. At Seaview (haha, she's a mermaid living in a town called Seaview) High School she falls in love with the star swimmer, Brody. Despite having had more than a few conversations with Brody, she has decided to that she wants to take him to meet and her King Daddy and spend the rest of her life with him. All seems to be going well, until Quince Fletcher steals her first kiss. This is my first mermaid novel (if you don't count The Little Mermaid...) and I was pleasantly surprised. The characters were charming, the world was vast and the plot kept me glued to the edge of my seat. While Lily's infatuation with Brody is a bit odd at first, but as I got to know Lily's naive personality I understood how she loved anything that reminded her of home. The story was definitely not what I expected (a very interesting rule of mermaidism...)but I liked that we got to see both worlds on more than one occasion. The characters were memorable and I adored Lily's naive nature and determination. I also felt with her when she was distraught over her place on this earth. Lily's father came off very "King Tritonish" to me and I just could not shake that image from my head the entire time. While some of the characters were stereotypes of high school I enjoyed all of them and their interactions. At the beginning, Quince's ability to pop up randomly annoyed me, I did grow to like him as his relationship with Lily progressed. Childs gives Lily a very believable voice and this voice makes her a very likeable character. Childs has created her own dictionary full of mermaid slang which kept the story fresh and I give an A+ for originality. This rating hangs out somewhere between a 3 1/2 and 4. While I did really enjoy it, I did want more than what the ending provided. I would love to read the trilogy because I want more of Childs' world!I recommend this for anyone who wants a really cute and short read and enjoys the mermaid genre.

FORGIVE MY FINS was my first encounter with Tera Lynn Childs' writing, but it won't be my last. FMF is a cute read and great for a lazy summer afternoon... or cold winter day when you need a fun, vibrant world to escape into.Mermaids will always be one of my favorite mythical creatures. I know I wasn't the only little girl to dream of one day discovering my mermaid heritage. Alright, so maybe I just wanted to have a cool tail and wear a shell-bikini... and fall in love with a cute human boy ala The Little Mermaid. Understandably, I was drawn to Childs' modern twist on this classic love story. The novel doesn't delve too deeply into the detail of being a merperson, but it definitely covers the romantic aspects of the story.I liked Quince immediately, but I never really connected with Lily's character. She was too shallow and simple for my tastes: I like my female leads to have sass and wit. Since I liked Quince, but found Lily lacking, their romance lost some of it's punch. Still, Quince was absolutely adorable and I found myself rooting for him and urging Lily to open her eyes and see the amazing boy that's standing right in front of her! Despite the fact that this novel was completely predictable, I enjoyed the ride. Childs appears to have a knack for writing those silly, sappy scenes that you sometimes daydream about. Like being marooned on an island with a cute boy and having to sleep together to conserve heat. I think I can safely say that we all have had some version of that daydream! Because of this, Childs' writing is strangely comforting.

It's a mermaid book! And I started reading it while taking a bath, AND the book starts with the narrator taking a bath! Like, oh-em-gee. Okay. The story flew by, thanks to simple storytelling. But Lily, the half-human/half-mermaid narrator, is totally annoying and deluded. The story was so-so, but delivers a pretty good message for teens about unrequited love. Princess Lily, daughter of a sea king, wants to explore her human mother's world and enrolls in high school. To maintain her royal status, she must become "bonded" (the mer equivalent of marriage) by her eighteenth birthday, which is coming up pretty quickly. But she's got it all under control, since she's had her mate picked out since she set foot on land three and a half years ago. After spending most of high school admiring her crush from afar, Lily is running out of time and must act now! After a mix-up on land Lily finds herself in a bit of a jam, and must retreat beneath the waves to get the problem resolved. I loved the underwater scenes, though they did demand a LOT of suspension of disbelief from me. Am I getting old and jaded when it comes to young adult fantasy? No, I don't think so. There are some other books that do it better, but I recognize the effort here. Though I think this is the first mermaid book I've read where quite a bit of the action takes place underwater. Overall, I was satisfied with the book. It was a fun, refreshing, light-hearted read. And bonus points for all the ocean-related slang that Lily uses.

I was excited to read this - I love mermaids and seeing as how this book is all about a mermaid, I was into it. And it didn't disappoint me horribly, but I didn't love it as much as I expected.There is a lot of "sea slang" used and I didn't really care for that. I felt it was bordering on being too cute and juvenile, maybe more suited for a preteen. I also couldn't really relate to the heroine Lily much. She was a little too stubborn for my tastes and more often than not I was rolling my eyes at her attitude. Stubborn is good, but there is a fine line and then you're just being stupid. She was also a little more naive than I would expect a nearly 18 year old to be. If I wanted to sum up this book, it was basically about a girl who is stupidly stubborn and wrong and everyone but her can see it and that it drags out that way until the end. There was really nothing else to this story: no action, no other storylines. At the end though, there is an epilogue, which points that there will be a second book out, and it in fact out now: Fins Are Forever. It seems like the story could get more interesting in the next book, but I'm honestly not really jumping out of my seat to go get it. I will end up reading it most likely, but I didn't get caught up in the story enough to really get involved. I think Forgive My Fins could have easily been one book, despite the ending being slightly unsatisfactory for the feelings invested.

FORGIVE MY FINS, by Tera Lynn Childs, is a remarkable story of a teenage mermaid princess living on land and the unwanted trouble she finds herself in.I absolutely adored this book. Lily is an extremely likable, and quite romantically naive, half human half mermaid. For as much as she tries to fit in, she sits comfortably in the middle class social spectrum of high school. Her next door neighbor, Quince, keeps her on her human toes with his antics and sarcasm, masking his obvious feelings for her.The magical mermaid aspect of this book was believable and exceptional. When Quince and Lily are accidentally bonded together, Childs took me on a journey underwater that made me want to jump into the pages and swim with them. In the world that Childs created, mermaids were not so different from humans. Food, clothes, and shelter were made from whatever was found in the sea and I felt immersed in this amazing world. Also, Lily's vocabulary was sea-related and at times hilarious. Even above water she stayed true to her mermaid self.The relationship between Lily and Quince was no easy one. I felt Lily was delusional about her feelings for Brody and I yearned for her to realize what was right in front of her. I found myself biting my nails each time Lily and Quince' bond was in danger of being severed because I felt they were so right for each other.I won't ruin too much of the plot because I think you should experience this wonderful book for yourself!

Ohmyfreakinggod! I am so beyond in love with this book! It took me a grand total of 4 days to read, (even though I started it like 2 weeks ago, when NaNo started I stopped reading until 3 days ago). I literally couldn't put this book down, Tera Lynn Childs just keeps writing these books that I will never be able to put down. I cannot wait for Fins are Forever (book 2), I totally need to know what happens next with all of the characters!Quince is definitely my favorite, but there's something about Dosinia that makes me curious about what she will do next, especially with that epilogue cliff-hanger.
Alliebeth927 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Forgive my Fins started off slighly rocky, with Childs taking the cheese factor to pretty great heights. Sayings like 'son of a swordfish' and 'fraidy-fish' had me rolling my eyes frequently. Luckily, though, things get considerably better. Once past the cringe inducing use of phrases and into the meat of the story, it was difficult to put the book down. This story would definitely be appropriate for even young teens, but would also be a great, light, beach read for older kids. Overall, I enjoyed it, even though it felt a bit young for my usual tastes.

Forgive My Fins is enchanting, fun, and where have you been bookie?!*hugs it tightly* This is one of my favorites. This is one my 1st Tera Lynn Childs books. i guess i'll have to pick up her other books too!We get introduced to Lily Sanderson, who is a mermaid princess. But shes not exactly living in her kingdom,Thalassinia. She's hanging out with us humans on land. Going to high school, teen drama, and being soo in love with Brody. She thinks his the one perfect guy to bond with. I found Lily to be a little shallow and caught up in la la land. But when the moment Lily can finally get Brody alone....Quince comes. The annoying, rude,baby boy, next door neighbor hunk! He's always teasing her at first he was a jerk. But in my head i was like "ah huh you like her" ha! i've been there!*why can't guys just say they like you* But when Quince and Lily start spending more time together... it was clear that they need to be together. I've always liked Quince, he's smart, nice, and not a total jerk i thought he was going to be. Way better then Brody, he is shallow. Like Quince said Lily "is he toy". At times i wanted to shake her to snap into reality. She was so blind because love was already in front of her.My favorite movie growing up was Little Mermaid, so when ever there a YA mermaid book i have to read! Not only does the author have to create fabulous characters but a whole new beautiful world! Tera does that! Forgive My Fins will hook readers from the very 1st page!
ericajsc on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Let me state, for the record, that I think the above summary is one of the better ones I¿ve read. It does a good job of setting up the story without really giving anything away. It¿s true that the resolution of the conflict in the book seems obvious from the first few pages, and this made me a little leery that the entire story would be predictable. I was pleasantly surprised throughout the book, though, as there were enough twists to keep the story fresh. I don¿t want to say a lot about the plot of the book, but I will say that something happens that forces Lily and Quince into a closer relationship than Lily ever desired with him. Seeing as Lily finds Quince to be the bane of her existence, this is something that Lily wants to correct as soon as possible. Yet despite her many attempts to separate herself from him, they are forced to spend even more time together. This appeals to me on several levels: 1) there is an obvious connection between the two of them, but Lily isn¿t swayed by that because she¿s working with the knowledge that he¿s always been somewhat of a jerk to her; 2) anytime two people who don¿t get along are forced to be together, there will be lots of tension, and a story¿s not a story without a good bit of tension; 3) when two seemingly different people are thrown into a situation together in which they have to work together or lose something important, they have to overcome their differences and see each other as more than the things that separate them. There is an epilogue that took me by surprise, as the tone of it seemed extremely different in tone from the rest of the book and did little for the story other than set up a second book. I thought that this could have been omitted and a second book would still work, focusing on that plot thread. This is a fast and fun read, touching on the themes of belonging and acceptance and true friendship. I think it will be most enjoyable for younger teens, though there¿s enough to keep older readers entertained as well.

Lily has been in love with Brody for as long as she can remember, only he has no idea. When she finally wakes up one morning and decides to do something about it, her enemy Quince surprisingly decides to help her.....and that's when things get pretty interesting lol.Wow...this was such a cute book! I loved every little thing about it. First off, the cover is just fantastic. I swear I just kept reading and then flipping back just to stare at it. Awesome character developement, to where I really felt like I KNEW these characters. I must say that my favorite character was Quince. Such a hard exterior but yet so caring and thoughtful inside. Lily drove me absolutely nuts, but in a good way. We saw what Lily's life on land was like and then the author took us on a trip straight to Thalassinia. The detailed descriptions of everything made me feel like I was really there!The sexual tension between her and Quince was just so thick throughout the whole book I felt like I was intruding just to read about those moments lol! Why is it that we're always searching for something that appears to be right in front of our faces. The question is will it be too late to realize it? Awesome book if you're looking for something light and fun to read on your summer vacation.

Forgive My Fins was a perfect summer read! This is the first book that I've read about mermaids, and I really enjoyed it! It was a lot different than I thought it would be but in a good way. I love how it wasn't about Lily trying to adjust to human life, or someone finding out her secret. It was a book about a girl who just so happened to be a mermaid, and it was great.Ahhh, I loved Quince. Hands down my favorite character. And the rest of the characters were great too! Strangely the one that I liked the least was Lily herself. I just thought that she was a bit too...thick sometimes. But that worked for the story in the end. The end! I loved loved loved the last chapter, but then the Epilogue gives you a kick in the butt.Everything about this book was just cute and light. I loved the way that Tera Lynn Childs dealt with Lily being a mermaid. She just was. There was no introduction, she was just explaining things as she went, which suited me fine. And the whole underwater world was fantastic. I wish that I could go and visit there for a vacation, it sounded so beautiful.Basically, I loved this book. If you're looking for something light and fun, this is the book for you!

Forgive my fins is an amazing story full of intrigue-and an everyday type of girl-crush. But Lily Sanderson knows the consequences if she kisses Brody-she's bonded for life. And when Quince Fletcher, her archenemy, kisses her while she is waiting for Brody because of Quince's brilliant plan, she's shocked. And when she runs back home, she reaizes that Quince is already turning Mer. Or into a merman, to be exact. This story is about a girl obsessed with a boy with charecteristics that he doesn't have, which is Brody. And as Quince tries to tell Lily how much he loves her and how they should be together, she tells her Father to sever the bond anyway, and despair falls unto her life. But will there be a happy ending? This is an amazing book full of emotion and life. It's an great read!
