Beautiful and cute teen mermaid story,
This review is from: Forgive My Fins (Paperback)Reading Forgive my Fins was like opening the covers of a book and watching a Disney film play out in front of my eyes. It is the story of first love, crushes and friendship and it is such a cute read that I can't see many people not loving it.
The main character, Lily, was really loveable and cute and she made me laugh. She has a crush on a boy at school called Brody, who in the three years she has known him has never really given her much attention, but now time is running out for Lily and she really needs to let Brody know of her feelings for him, like yesterday! I enjoyed reading Lily's thoughts, although I didn't always agree with her.
Quince on the other hand, the boy next door and the bain of her life, thinks she's making a big mistake and makes it his mission in life to get her to see that Brody just isn't good enough for her. Lily still thinks that Quince was just put on this earth to torment the hell out of her and she's just not having it. I thought he was an awesome character and he 'made' this book for me. He had a depth to him that I as a reader could see and was hoping that Lily would pick up on.
I loved the chapters that Lily spent in her underwater kingdom, Thalassinia. It is described perfectly and sounds so beautiful that I wanted to go there myself. Any Mermen out there who'd like to kiss me and make me their own? No? Shame.
I loved this book. Tera did a great job of making it a heart-warming, cute and funny read - one that I would most certainly recommend to my friends and I am looking forward to the second in the series, Fins Are Forever.
