Waiting on Wednesday (47)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Tempest Rising"
by Tracy Deebs
Walker Books for Young Readers
Release Date: May 10, 2011


The following description is from goodreads.com:

Tempest Maguire wants nothing more than to surf the killer waves near her California home; continue her steady relationship with her boyfriend, Mark; and take care of her brothers and surfer dad. But Tempest is half mermaid, and as her seventeenth birthday approaches, she will have to decide whether to remain on land or give herself to the ocean like her mother. The pull of the water becomes as insistent as her attraction to Kai, a gorgeous surfer whose uncanny abilities hint at an otherworldly identity as well. And when Tempest does finally give in to the water's temptation and enters a fantastical underwater world, she finds that a larger destiny awaits her—and that the entire ocean's future hangs in the balance.


I love all the mermaid stories that are coming out next year! This one sounds really interesting, and the cover is gorgeous! Have you seen any upcoming releases featuring mermaids that you'd like to share??

What are you waiting on this week??

Mermaid books have the most beautiful stunning covers. This one sounds extremely similar to The Mermaid's Mirror... I'll have to read it to compare. Great pick.
