Cover and Description Release: Fathom

I've found a new Young Adult book that will be coming out October 1, 2012.  And I think you all would enjoy it.  It sounds like it has a Celtic blend and the sea is included as well.

After you read the description of the book jump over to Merrie Destefano's blog to read the first chapter.  I will say after reading this first chapter I'm curious; about Kira the main character, her mother and sister, and what is to come from her heritage and sea!  Yea, one to check out.

By:  Merrie Destefano
Due Out:  October 1, 2012
(Young Adult)


Everything is changing . . .

Turning sixteen can be hell, especially if everyone in town thinks your mother killed herself and your sister. All Kira Callahan wants to do is swim, hang out with her best friend, Sean, and ignore the kids who torment her at school. That is, until one day when she gets invited to a party. For three minutes her life is wonderful—she even kisses Sean in the driveway. Then somebody spikes her drink at the party and some girls from out of town lure her into the ocean and hold her underwater. 

Kira soon discovers that the group of wild teenagers who have come to visit Crescent Moon Bay are not as innocent as they seem. In fact, nothing is as it seems—not the mysterious deaths of her sister and mother, not her heritage, not even her best friend. And everything seems to hinge on the ancient Celtic legends that her mother used to tell her as a child.

What do you think?  Okay, like I promised there is the first chapter up on Merrie's blog for your reading.  I will say it caught my eye, and makes me want the book even more.  I love the sounds of the sea and mysteries to this story!

Does Merrie's name sound familiar to you?  This is the first YA book she has published, but she has 3 adult books out:
Feast  (Harvest of Dreams #1)

Afterlife  (The Resurrection Chronicles #1)

Waiting for Midnight (anthology of short stories by Merrie)

There seems to be an awful lot of bloggers eagerly awaiting the release of Fathom but then Celtic I'm informed is said to be the next in-thing.
