Waiting on Wednesday (4): Tempest Rising

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

Tempest Rising
by Tracy Deebs
Publication: May 10th 2011 by Walker Books for Young Readers
Synopsis taken from Goodreads 
A contemporary paranormal romance out just in time to ride the wave of the newest creature craze: mermaids!

Tempest Maguire wants nothing more than to surf the killer waves near her California home; continue her steady relationship with her boyfriend, Mark; and take care of her brothers and surfer dad. But Tempest is half mermaid, and as her seventeenth birthday approaches, she will have to decide whether to remain on land or give herself to the ocean like her mother. The pull of the water becomes as insistent as her attraction to Kai, a gorgeous surfer whose uncanny abilities hint at an otherworldly identity as well. And when Tempest does finally give in to the water's temptation and enters a fantastical underwater world, she finds that a larger destiny awaits her—and that the entire ocean's future hangs in the balance.
I'm really looking to this one because I haven't read a mermaid book yet and it seems like this one has to do with that! Awesome! Well, it's Wednesday - what are you waiting on?


  1. I'm looking forward to this one. I've read two mermaid books recently and really liked them.

  2. Ooh, which ones did you read? I've heard of two that I want/need to go buy still, LOL!


Thanks so much for stopping by Books Over Boys! You're a fun little lollipop triple dipped in awesomesauce. ;p
