Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
September Girls 
by Bennett Madison

hitting shelves May 21st, 2013 from Harper Teen

description: 
When Sam finds himself in a sleepy little beach town for the summer, it doesn’t take long for him to realize there’s something strange going on beneath its surface. Everywhere he looks, there are beautiful blond girls. Girls who seem inexplicably drawn to him.

One of the girls, DeeDee, is different. But just as he starts to fall for her, she pulls away, leaving him more confused than ever. He knows that if he’s going to get her back, he’ll have to uncover the secret of this beach and the girls who live here—and find out what they want from him.
 

Critically acclaimed author Bennett Madison presents a darkly imaginative and painfully honest novel about oblivious parents, sibling rivalries, first loves...and mermaids. This modern reimagining is perfect for fans of the irreverent wit of Ned Vizzini and the seductive magic of Alex Flinn’s retold fairy tales.   

My thoughts:  Ok, it's a reimagining of a fairy tale...so I'm all over it!  Love them.  And if I wasn't already excited, this quote from Publisher's Weekly has officially sold me: “Madison’s dreamlike prose imbues the most ordinary moments with cosmic significance.”
