"Waiting On" Wednesday (5)

This week my pick is one I recently discovered while talking with the author about something. I generally like to choose books maybe not so many people haven't heard of so I thought this one would be good since I have heard nothing about it yet, but I hope to start the buzz up today with this post, because it sounds, amazing!

Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
June 1, 2009
16-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science...and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she's happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother's estate.

There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can't make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship...and reality.

Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?

I love coming-of-age, mysterious, romance stories, so this one sounds perfect. I've only read one of Aimee Friedman's books, the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedy one of hers, A Novel Idea, which I really enjoyed. But I have had her novel, The Year My Sister Got Lucky on my wish-list for at least a year now, and am still determined to get it.

What do you think? Interesting enough? And, come on, look at that gorgeous cover, that alon has to draw you in, right?
