Waiting On Wednesday #8: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  

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 make our shelves look all pretty :)

I think I have found another mermaid book to be excited about!

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks 
Release Date: May 22, 2012 

"Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . . 

Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance."

 A book told from both the girl/boy point of views?!
I am SO reading this! I love when author's are able to write both sides - usually makes for a very interesting story... especially when there is romance involved :)
