Fridays with First Timers


It's Friday!  Yeah!  My school's graduation is tomorrow.  It should be fun but also sad.
Okay, enough of that.  Onto the book.
This one caught my eye when I was perusing the Goodreads Debut YA Novels of 2012.  It sounds really good.


About the author:
Anne Greenwood Brown
I am a Minnesota author, writing about mermaid assassins on Lake Superior. My debut YA series begins with LIES BENEATH, coming June 12, 2012 from Random House/Delacorte.


The sequel (currently titled WATER LILY) is anticipated for March 2013.


Besides writing and reading YA literature, I love all things Irish, romantic movies, beef stroganoff, and Nutella.


If I'm listening to music it's Violent Femmes, The Coronas (awesome band out of Dublin), and Great Big Sea (out of Newfoundland).


(Isn't she beautiful?)


And about the book:
Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. 


They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. 


Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.


Be sure to cheek out Lies Beneath when it hits stores June 12th!  Have a great weekend.
