Waiting on Wednesday

The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan


Release Date: October 2010

Lena has lived her whole life near the beach—walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves—the problem is, she’s spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.

But her father – a former surfer himself – refuses to allow her to take lessons. After a near drowning in his past, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.

Yet something lures Lena to the water … an ancient, powerful magic. One morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman—with a silvery tail. Nothing will keep Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove. And soon … what she sees in the mermaid’s mirror will change her life...

I love that cover. It was the first thing that brought my attention to this book. I haven't read a mermaid type read yet, but this one I'm definitely going to give a try. Plus it has surfing and while I don't live anywhere near a beach I've always wanted to surf so I live vicariously through movies and books that mention it.

I read this book online at netgalley. I thought it was pretty good but I didn't love it.
