It goes against every instinct and mer law I've been taught since birth - to keep our secret from humans at any expense - but I really don't have a choice. That kiss made this moment inevitable. p.76 ARCThis is a fun summer read. It is super fun and fluffy and light and would be a great beach read. I'm not saying any of that to degrade it, but because that is simply what it is. It's Meg Cabot with fins and I love Meg Cabot. The main character, Lily, is the typical "too stupid to see the truth even when it is shoved down her throat" teenage girl that often shows up in these books. I will say she is very funny and I liked the fishy terminology she throws around. But she is very obtuse, only seeing what she wants to see. I wanted to shake her. But Quince, phew, that's a guy. Am I right? Man, he is a great love interest for her and I admire his patience and fortitude.
I really like the mermaid aspect. I'm a big mermaid fan. And the mythology created is very good with some very nice details thrown in. Lily has some great friends both under and over the water and that was a nice aspect of this book. All in all, I'd say this is a great book if you are looking for something fun and frothy to read at the beach or by the pool.
