WoW: Sea

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother's accidental disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen year old California girl Sienna "Sea" Jones reluctantly travels with her father's volunteer team to six months post-tsunami Indonesia. During her stay at the orphanage, she meets scarred and soulful Deni who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can't be together, so why can't she stay away from him? And what about her old-best-friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why is her psychiatrist father so secretive about her mother's plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to the truth. And Sea's real adventure begins.

Ah, the classic guy you want but can't have. I first heard of Sea* after I started following Heidi R. Kling's twitter. She's a tenner! I think it sounds like a very interesting book, especially the setting. I've never read any books in post-tsunami Indonesia. I also like the simplicity of the title. If I were to see this in a bookstore, that and the cover would definitely pull me in to find out more about the book. It won't be released until June 10, 2010, so it's a bit of a long wait, but I think it will be worth it.

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.
