You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover... Or Can You?

Cover Judge is a weekly post that examines the covers of books on my wish list. This week I'm featuring the beautiful cover of Tera Lynn Child's upcoming novel:

Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Release: May 2010

Synopsis: 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.

Cover: GORGEOUS! This cover is ah-mazing. In case the blue lips and eyeshadow didn't look magical enough, the gust of blue and purple completes the ambiance. Her green-blue hair that fades to brown on the bottom also ties into the magical look, as well as Lily's mermaid/human dilemma. I really don't know what else to say about this cover, other than I absolutely love it!


  1. I agree it is beautiful and draws you in, if I saw that book on the shelf I would at least pick it up!

  2. I love this cover, it definitely draws me to the book. Can't wait to read this(:

  3. I really like it, too. I can't wait to see it in person!

  4. I'm not a big fan of the cover because it looks a bit odd, but it still gives off this magical vibe. I loved OH.MY.GODS and am SOSOSOSO excited about this one!
