Waiting On Wednesday #48: September Girls by Bennett Madison

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Bennett Madison
Expected release date: May 21st, 2013
Published by: Harper Teen
Genre: Young Adult


When Sam's dad whisks him and his brother off to a remote beach town for the summer, he's all for it-- at first. Sam soon realizes, though, that this place is anything but ordinary. Time seems to slow down around here, and everywhere he looks, there are beautiful blond girls. Girls who seem inexplicably drawn to him. 

Then Sam meets DeeDee, one of the Girls, and she's different from the others. Just as he starts to fall for her, she pulls away, leaving him more confused than ever. He knows that if he's going to get her back, he'll have to uncover the secret of this beach and the girls who live here.

Why I'm waiting on 'September Girls'...

From the book's cover and the summary,
I am getting such a huge mermaid-vibe here!

These "Girls"... mermaids?
There has got to be some sort of supernatural/paranormal thing going on, right???
"Time seems to slow down around here."

SO many questions!
I am really looking forward to seeing if this is just an eerie contemporary book... or what :)

What are you waiting on this year???
