 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.

If you love sweet romance, mermaids and bubbly fun, then Forgive my Fins is an amazing book for you. A light, can be funny book about half-mermaid, Lily who have always been in love with Brody Bennett. She even became the manger of the swimming team to see him and not noticing a a extremely hot guy that might just be perfect for her. Quince, the neighbor that always messed with her. So when he suddenly kissed her in the dark, troubles begins to starts. She goes through confusion about her feelings.
Lily is completely blind for not noticing Quince's feeling for her (sighs), Hello, many people like  chasing and messing with the person they love and Quince is that type of person :D
Lily is not amazing, but she is good enough. Brody.... he's okay, all I can see about him is that he is a hot swimmer, so what? But Quince... (swoons) can be so amazing, he can be sweet, charming and even a bit funny!

Childs have done an amazing job on this series, but I feel like it might have been a bit better, it is not my favorite, but it is definitely a wonderful light summer read.
The cover is stunning for sure!! It is so greenish :3

For conclusion, Forgive my Fin is a fun book people should read.

 4/5 Stars :D
