About the Book:

When Adrianne comes face-to-face with the mermaid of Windwaithe Island, of whom she has heard terrible stories all her life, she is convinced the mermaid means to take her younger sister. Adrianne, fierce-willed and courageous, is determined to protect her sister from the mermaid, and her family from starvation. However, the mermaid continues to haunt Adrianne in her dreams and with her song.

Yet, when the islanders find out about Adrianne's encounters with the mermaid she is scorned, for this small and superstitious community believes the mermaid will bring devastation to the island if Adrianne does not give herself to the sea.
A powerful and lyrical story of one girl who must choose between having everything and having those she loves.

Oh, and I DARE you to tell me that that isn't the coolest cover ever?  I mean, it's a tad creepy but the font, the colors, the DRESS!  Fawbulous cover, I tell you.  Fawbulous!

About the Author: (from her Blogger Profile)
I never did figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I graduated from college with a BFA in illustration, have worked as a children's librarian for over twelve years and would eventually like to be a full-time author. I live with my pets, a parrot and a tiny toy poodle. I was born and raised in Californa but have come to also love Utah where I now live.]

Needless to say, we are all thrilled about the release of her book!  WHICH COMES OUT IN THREE DAYS!  EVERYBODY SCREAM!!


Carry on, everyone.
