Waiting On Wednesday! (Feb. 24, 2010)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: December 1, 2010
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
Pages: 244

Summary: First zit. First crush. First…mermaid’s tail? Jade feels like enough of a freak-of-nature when she gets her first period at almost fifteen. She doesn’t need to have it happen at the mall while trying on that XL tankini she never wanted to buy in the first place. And she really doesn’t need to run into Luke Martin in the Feminine Hygiene Products aisle while her dad Googles ‘menstruation’ on his Blackberry. But ‘freak-of-nature’ takes on a whole new meaning when raging hormones and bath salts bring on another metamorphosis—complete with scales and a tail. And when Jade learns she’s inherited her mermaid tendencies from her late mother’s side of the family, it raises the question; if Mom was once a mermaid, did she really drown that day last summer? Jade is determined to find out. Though, how does a plus-sized, aqua-phobic mer-girl go about doing that, exactly…especially when Luke from aisle six seems to be the only person who might be able to help?

My Thoughts: How cute does this book sound? I love the fact that all these mermaid novels are coming out this year. My favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid, so I do love anything that has to do with them :)
