Tera Lynn Childs - Forgive ​My Fins
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.

But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form, when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody? The seafoam on the surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up. Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle.

Lily ​Sandersonnak van egy titka - nem az, hogy halálosan szerelmes a Brody Bennett nevű jóképű úszóistenbe, akinek láttán a szíve partra vetett halként vergődik. A viszonzatlan szerelmet még egy normális kamaszlány is nehezen éli meg, de ha valaki félig ember, félig sellő, mint Lily, végképp nem beszélhetünk egyszerű kis kalandról. Lily titka nem derülhet ki, mivel ő nem akármilyen sellő, hanem Thalasszinia hercegnője. Amikor Lily három éve megtudta, hogy az édesanyja valójában ember volt, végre rájött, miért nem érzi igazán otthon magát Thalassziniában. Azóta is a szárazföldön él, és a Seaview Gimnáziumba jár, abban a reményben, hogy sikerül igazi otthonra lelnie. Persze a szárazföldön is akadnak nehézségek - például Quince Fletcher, a bunkó motoros srác a szomszédból -, de egy komoly előny azért van: Brody. A gond csak az, hogy a sellők nem igazán hívei az alkalmi kapcsolatoknak - amint kötődni kezdenek valakihez, az érzés örökre szól. Amikor Lily kísérlete, hogy elnyerje Brody szívét, kínos félreértések szökőárját zúdítja az érintettek nyakába, a lány kész szembenézni a szerelmi dráma fenyegetően tornyosuló hullámaival, és hamar rájön, hogy révbe érni nem is olyan könnyű, mint gondolnánk.
