    Read an Excerpt and Find Out More about Tera Lynn Childs.

    What if your true love stared you in the face? What if you were unerringly shackled to a pain-in-the-butt motorcycle pest and you couldn’t shake him like the barnacle he was? Welcome to Seaview High and a typical day in the life of Princess Waterlily aka incognito Lily Sanderson.

    Tera Lynn Childs has taken the hot hero sandwich to a rip roaring level, as her effervescent deep sea concoction Forgive My Fins, pits weak-kneed Lily (mermaid in hiding) against the boy she has a super crush on, and the wanna be best friend who might want more. What’s a mermaid to do?

    When Lily accidentally “bonds” with her on-again/off-again friend Quince, she has to let him in on her big secret and appeal to her father (the Thalassinian King) to dissolve the bond before Quince starts to sport gills and fins. And the separation needs to be conducted post haste, because Lily wants to pursue her real crush: Brody Bennett. And Quince is just getting in the way.

    Forgive My Fins was an absolute wonder and adorable-acious! It was such an enjoyable treat to dive into. One of the keenest points that Childs focuses on, is Lily realizing that she doesn’t always see what is in front of her. What will it take to rip the scales from her eyes-and will she have the courage to acknowledge what she sees? Whose face will be before her? Can she deny the feelings that she has for Quince? Are they destined for friendship or something more? Childs conjures up that inexplicable crossroads: puppy love intersected with the fathomless intensity of true love.
