Waiting on Wednesday: Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.
 Fathomless (Fairytale Retellings, #3)
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication date: 9/4/2012
Pages: 304


Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo.

Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.

When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

Why I am Waiting:

First off, Jackson Pearce is such an amazing person and she writes really awesome books. I mean this is her third fairytale retellings book. Who wouldn't want to read them all. Even though I still really need to read Sweetly (Second in the retellings series) I will totally still be buying this one on the day it comes out. Can't wait. Less than a month left. Comes out September 4th. =]
