I'm intrigued by...
Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Published Date: September 2016
Bridey Corkill has hated the ocean ever since she watched her granddad
dive in and drown with a smile on his face. So when a dead girl rolls in
with the tide in the summer of 1913, sixteen-year-old Bridey suspects
that whatever compelled her granddad to leap into the sea has made its
return to the Isle of Man.
Soon, villagers are vanishing in
the night, but no one shares Bridey’s suspicions about the sea. No one
but the island’s witch, who isn’t as frightening as she first appears,
and the handsome dark-haired lad Bridey rescues from a grim and watery
fate. The cause of the deep gashes in Fynn’s stomach and his lost
memories are, like the recent disappearances, a mystery well-guarded by
the sea. In exchange for saving his life, Fynn teaches Bridey to master
her fear of the water — stealing her heart in the process.
Now, Bridey must work with the Isle’s eccentric witch and the boy she
isn’t sure she can trust — because if she can’t uncover the truth about
the ancient evil in the water, everyone she loves will walk into the
sea, never to return. (summary from Goodreads)
I'm definitely liking the sounds of this one! And the cover is beautiful. The only downside? Having to wait until September 2016!
