Image of Forgive My Fins

An unexpected winner! This engaging tale benefits from excellent worldbuilding. Lily and Quince are complex and memorable. Lily’s imperfections are perfect and Quince is a hero anyone would love to love. This is one reviewer who is anxiously awaiting Childs’ next book!

Mermaid princess Lily has only a few months left in her senior year of human high school. Before she turns 18, just after graduation, she must pick a spouse to become next in line for the mer-throne. Things are right on track until Lily accidentally kisses Quince instead of her crush, Brody. The kiss forms a bond between them that forces this mismatched pair on an undersea adventure.
