Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she’s ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?
I believe that I first heard about Mandy Hubbard's novel Ripple from The Story Siren a few weeks back. I've never read a book where the main character was a mermaid or a siren before, so the plot line intrigued me right away! With the increasing release of mermaid related stories, it seems to me like they might just be the next biggest genre (not the right word I'm looking for...but close enough!), especially with the memaid love interest incorporated in the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie! Ripple is set to be released July 21st, so at least the wait won't be too long!
