I want to read that...

Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

From Goodreads: 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.


I am so looking forward to this one - I have no idea how I'm going to wait until next year *sobs* It's published July 21st 2011 by Razorbill/Penguin

I hadn't heard about this one yet! I absolutely love anything to do with mermaids, so I'll be adding it to my wishlist. Great find!

This sounds really interesting and I haven't really read much about mermaids.

This is one of those books that I could end up reading just because the cover is really pretty! the story sounds good as well though.
