Siren's Storm by Lisa Papademetriou
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: August 8, 2011
Pages: 272

Summary: Nothing has been the same for Will ever since what happened last summer. One day, on an ordinary sailing trip with his brother, there is a strange accident. When Will wakes up, he learns his brother has disappeared, presumed drowned. Worst of all, Will can't remember what happened—his family finds him unconscious, with no memory of the accident. Now Will and his best friend and neighbor, Gretchen, are starting a new summer. Gretchen seems troubled—her sleepwalking habit is getting worse, and she keeps waking up closer and closer to the water. Will is drawn to Asia, the exotic new girl in town. Nobody knows where she's from—all Will knows is that her beauty and her mesmerizing voice have a powerful effect on people. Then there is another mysterious drowning, and Will and Gretchen begin to wonder: Is Asia just another beautiful, wealthy summer resident? Or is she something entirely more sinister . . . and inhuman?

My Thoughts: Love this cover, it's mysterious and spooky, which fits right in with the summary. Who is Asia? What happened to Will's brother? I would love to find out! Too bad the release date is so far. But, it's definitely a book I'm looking forward to seeing on bookshelves.

What are your thoughts on Siren's Storm?

Sounds a bit like The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan, a girl sleepwalking to the beach at night there as well. That one didn't quite work for me so I must confess that I'm a bit reluctant towards this one but qurious to know if Lisa Papademetriou can pull it off :)
