REViEW:
I absolutely adored this book! This was the first mermaid book I have read and I surely wish that I would have picked this up sooner! I actually don't think I would've read this book if I hadn't received it as a present. The reason for that is because of the sort of cliche title and the chick-lit-y summary. I mean mermaid princess? Come on. I'm happy to report that this book had so much more depth and humor to it then it appears to contain. I absolutely loved all the little sea-life jokes Ms. Childs includes in this book. It added a bit of flow (no pun intended) to this novel. I really hope you consider giving this book a try, because it is much more mature then the summary and title makes it out to be.

The characters were amazing! Lily was a relatable, likable character. Although, I wish she could have seen Quince for how he was sooner, I understood her attraction to Brody. The mini love-triangle was a great component to making this book enjoyable and more relatable  for me. Now on to the man-candy: Quince was the ultimate character that I have come across. He was so hilarious and nice and just plain awesome. I really wish he was real. The entire relationship, love and hate, between Quince and Lily was fluently written and ideal to the plot. I definitely enjoyed it! 

The ending was just as good as the rest of the book. I was happy with the way it ended. I was satisfied enough to wait to buy the sequel, but intrigued enough to put the sequel on my Top Priority wishlist. Overall, this was a light, quick, fun read that really made me smile. It's a favorite of mine and now I can't wait for more adventures with Lily and Quince.

My Favorite Part: The scenes with Quince, his humor really added a lot to the fast pace.  

ALL iN ALL:
Do I recommend this book? Absolutely! This is such a great, quick, fun summer read!
Will I be reading the next book? Yes! I actually already have! I'll post that review soon!

Thanks for reading! Did you like this book? Comment and let me know!
