Waiting on Wednesday: Revel by Maurissa Guibord

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is REVEL by Maurissa Guibord.  REVEL releases on February 12, 2013 from Delacorte Books for Young Readers.

There’s an island off the coast of Maine that’s not on any modern map.

Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn’t her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia’s not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night.

Sean Gunn, a handsome young lobsterman, befriends Delia and seems willing to risk his life to protect her. But it’s Jax, the coldly elusive young man she meets at the water’s edge, who finally makes Delia understand the real dangers of life on the island. Delia is going to have to fight to survive. Because there are monsters here. And no one ever leaves Trespass alive.

I know this one is a ways away, but I can't help but go and look at it on Goodreads at least once a week to see if anyone has gotten the chance to read it early!  I am intrigued by the mystery surrounding this island!  I love that its going to deal with Greek mythology because I'm a sucker for it!  And even though many people are put off by love triangles, I think if they are done well, they are great!  I'm sure Sean and Jax will both leave us reeling! 

What are you waiting on??
