Waiting on Wednesday

This week we're looking forward to reading Lisa Papademetriou's latest YA novel, Siren's Storm

Here's the summary from Goodreads: Nothing has been the same for Will ever since what happened last summer. One day, on an ordinary sailing trip with his brother, there is a strange accident. When Will wakes up, he learns his brother has disappeared, presumed drowned. Worst of all, Will can't remember what happened—his family finds him unconscious, with no memory of the accident.

Now Will and his best friend and neighbor, Gretchen, are starting a new summer. Gretchen seems troubled—her sleepwalking habit is getting worse, and she keeps waking up closer and closer to the water. Will is drawn to Asia, the exotic new girl in town. Nobody knows where she's from—all Will knows is that her beauty and her mesmerizing voice have a powerful effect on people.

Then there is another mysterious drowning, and Will and Gretchen begin to wonder: Is Asia just another beautiful, wealthy summer resident? Or is she something entirely more sinister . . . and inhuman?

Summer vacation. Swimming. A weird accident. Sleepwalking . . . and a mysterious girl. Sounds like a great read! We really like the cover, too. Siren's Storm, hardcover, 272 pages, YA, will be published by Knopf Books for Young Readers on August 9th.

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at breaking the spine.


  1. This book looks good! Thanks for featuring it.

  2. The girl looks like she is trying to pick her nose...LOL It just struck me as strange when I seen the sounds good though!
