Forgive My Fins by 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.

Why I Want It:
I'm really enjoying Goddess Boot Camp and I really liked Oh. My. Gods., so I'm looking forward for another book by Tera Lynn Childs. Forgive My Fins comes out on June 1, 2010.

I am so excited about this b/c I think the whole mermaid thing will be fun! (I think it's the next "trend" in YA fantasy)

I agree I've seen some preview stories with mermaids that look good, or witches are coming back.... either one.
