OH WOW, I love this series!!! This book was Crabbtastic!! In Fins are Forever the story continues right where Forgive My Fins left off with Lily being madly in love with Quince but deciding that she is interested in giving up her crown in Thalassinia as future queen to stay as a human on land forever with her boyfriend Quince and seek out college and a new life.

Forgive my Fins was great and so I had high expectation for Fins are Forever to be equally good!! However, I think that Fins are Forever was better than my expectations! I devoured the book as fast as possible and might even go back through and read it again! You know the author is great when the second book in the series doesn't have the case of "boring middle book" syndrome but is just as exciting as book one!

The new twists of Lily's bratty younger cousin Doe showing up was great! She is one of those characters you hate but find a bit amusing and appealing! The trouble she brings to the book adds a bit of additional humor to the story that is great!

Again, the plot in this series is unlike anything I've ever read and is so engrossing that it is hard to imagine waiting for the additional books in the series to be released! The ending was a bit predictable but still not disappointing in the least.

The romance is of course the most important part of this story and I loved it in Fins are Forever. I wish there were more kissing scenes between Lily and Quince but what Childs gives us is great! There was a mild make-out session between 2 other characters but it was all done very clean and I would say this book is appropriate for any age group!

Format: Hardcover
Fins are Forever is the sequel to the delightfully original mermaid taleForgive My Fins.

Warning:Contains spoilers for Forgive my Fins - the first book in the series.

Lily has chosen to renunciate her title as Princess Waterlily to be with her true love Quince and live forever on land. She is having a few tiny misgivings though. The usually perpetually perky Lily is having a bit of a hard time this time around. Her cousin Dosnia has committed an unspeakable offense and as punishment has been sent to live on land - with Lily.
If you read the first book you know that Doe is NOT Lily's favorite person. She's impulsive and selfish and continually flirts with Quince.
There is also trouble brewing under the sea. An alliance in the form of a bonding kiss with childhood friend Tellin would go along way to smoothing things over but could prove to be too much for Lily's human boyfriend Quince to handle.
I really, really, really wanted to love Fins are Forever but I just didn't. The first book swept me away in it's magical, quirky prose. I do understand that we need some drama and Lily is going through a lot of changes in her life but she was very negative in this book and I don't enjoy a negative Lily. She was almost pouty and whiny.
Her cousin Doe and her blossoming romance with Lily's former crush Brody provides conflict but to be honest I don't like Doe or care that much about her so I wasn't invested in her storyline too much.
Tellin sort of just pops up out of nowhere with a pretty big offer for Lily that would completely change her life yet again. The internal conflict that Lily has to work out between her loyalty to the people of Thalassina and her love for Quince was more interesting but was shortchanged and felt rushed to me.

Fins are Forever is a fun read. If your in the mood for something light and refreshing add this one to your summer reading.

Being royalty shouldn't be a pain in the caudal fin. Lily Sanderson's life should be perfect. She is a princess after all. Unfortunately Lily has a lot of figuring out to do. Her whole life has been dedicated to her future, and her duty to be the best queen possible. Lil is torn between her life, love, and family ashore, and her duty, and kingdom at sea. Life as she has always planned and prepared for has drastically changed. Without being in a bonded coupling by her eighteenth birthday Lily can't become crown princess, and the one person she wants to bond with is immune.

So Lily has to plan for the life unexpected. One lived on land. She has decided to abdicate her throne. Lily has chosen love and Quince over Queendom. It's too bad she didn't take school more seriously. With less than a month before graduation Lily is trying her best to salvage her academic career so she can go to college.

But fate and her family are about to make things even more difficult, when her human hating cousin, Dosinia is exiled to shore it becomes Lily's last duty as princess to educate Doe on the ways of the human world. But Doe has plans of her own. She's causing all kinds of mischief that's got Lily swimming in circles. Adding to the already mounting tension is the addition of a guppyhood friend who offers Lily a solution to her conflicting dilemma between love and duty. But is the offer worth the possible sacrifices.

Childs packs the story with relatable situations for her teenage audience. Lily's struggle with finding her own way in the world is as endearing as her quirky slang.
