Wish List Wednesday - Number Thirty-Eight

With an amazing list of 2011 debuts, is it any wonder that so many of them have made it onto a lot of bloggers (and non-bloggers) wish lists? Going through the list, this one has always stuck out at me. Plus, since the cover is released, the inner cover whore rears its ugly head and makes me want to read this one even more.

Tempest Rising

Written by: Tracy Deebs

Released: May 10, 2011 by Walker Books for Young Readers (hardcover) / July 2, 2011 by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (paperback)

Summary: 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.

It sounds so good I can’t wait until spring to read it. I mean, what girl can resist a love story with mermaids with a cover like that? I know I can’t. I just wish I knew which cover I liked best; they’re both so pretty. I really want to know what that tattoo is supposed to mean (if anything) though...
