This week I'm waiting on...
Sea by Heidi R. Kling
Release Date: June 10, 2010
Still haunted by nightmares of her mother’s death, fifteen-year-old Sienna Jones reluctantly travels to Indonesia with her father’s relief team to help tsunami orphans with their post traumatic stress disorder—something Sienna knows a lot about. Since her mother’s plane went missing over the Indian Ocean three years before, Sienna doesn’t do anything if it involves the ocean or planes, so this trip is a big step forward.
But the last thing she expects is to fall for Deni, a brooding Indonesian boy who lives at the orphanage, and just so happens to be HOT. When Deni hears a rumor that his father may be alive, Sienna doesn’t think twice about running away with him to the epicenter of the disaster. Unfortunately, what they find there could break both their hearts.
-At first glance this book looks like a cute summer read. But upon reading the summary, I think this book will be heavier than the average beach read (not that there's anything wrong with light summer reading, I like those books too). I like that the book is set in Indonesia, dealing with victims of the tsunami as one of the plots and that it has an interracial romance (specifically that the interracial romance is not black-white. Again, nothing wrong with that or those books but there are other interracial relationships out there) Furthermore, the cover is absolutely gorgeous :D I love how it looks like they are underwater and that you can't get a clear glimpse of the two main characters, you can make up your mind about how they look. Thankfully, I don't have too many more days to wait for this one!
