Waiting on Wednesday: Wrecked

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Title: Wrecked by Anna Davies
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing
Publish Date: May 1, 2012
Genre: Paranormal
Goodreads Summary: Miranda has lived on Whym Island since the death of her parents. She has taken comfort in its seclusion and in the folklore that claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and its surrounding waters. It's easier to believe things are out of her control.

But when a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy that haunts her dreams. As the guilt of the accident consumes her, she finds refuge in her late night swims. Until she meets Christian, a boy who seems so familiar, but won't tell her where he is from and why they can only meet at the beach. As Miranda falls for Christian and begins to put the accident behind her, she discovers that there are secrets that Christian is keeping to protect her that may only end up bringing her nothing but harm.
Wrecked sounds like a fresh twist on The Little Mermaid and I cannot wait to read it! Additionally, I love the black and white cover. What books are you waiting on?

I'm already liking this updated reversal of Andersen's fairy tale. :) This is definitely going on the TBR list. Also, I'm excited to hear your thoughts on Trial by Fire, which I also have coming in the mail! So I cannot put off both books for too long. Happy reading!
