Waiting On Wednesday (Ripple)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday each participant will choose a book that they are "waiting on" or haven't released yet. This week I'm waiting for sirens:
Title: Ripple
Author: Mandy Hubbard
Publisher: Razorbill
Pages: 300
Publication Date: July 21, 2011

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.
Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.

In Ripple, Mandy Hubbard spins a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty, and the choices one girl makes between land and waves, love and freedom, her future—and her heart.
This one sounds so amazing!  I cannot wait for this one!  I haven't read a book about sirens in a while, it will be fun to read it.  It is coming out during the summer, which seems a long time away from now, considering my house is covered in snow and patches of ice.  Anyway- what are you waiting for this fine Wednesday?
