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—the instant 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.

    " 2 1/2 stars. While I didn't completely dislike this book, I found the narrator Lily to be an insufferable brat for the majority of the story. She was hard to like. While she got better near the end, I was well over her by that time. I think I've also discovered that mermaids aren't really my thing. "

    " amazing modern fiction :) I would definetly reccomend it, but it definetly isn't the best book I've read. Just a tad too sappy for me. I will most definetly but the sequel in July, it ended at cliff hanger!!! "

    " I finished this in about.... 4 hours. I loved it that much. Okay maybe not four hours since I started it late at night and (pain stackingly) had to go to sleep. But it was a great book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 1/15/2014

    " Ok..i didn't really like this book that much. The girl really bothered me. She was so...clueless, irrating and stubborn sometimes, my fists were clenching and unclenching because i really felt like knocking some sense into her. This book really was not for me, the girl just seemed like a brat though she got better towards the end. "

    " It a weird book but it's a very interesting way to paint what is being a mermaid. When I finished this book I wanted to be a mermaid too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Pinson | 7/16/2013

    " Loved it. Really cute book. A 4 is maybe too high, but I felt guilty giving it a 3. Lily acted like a baby quite frequently, but I loved Quince and his patience. "
