Fallen, by Lauren Kate
Publisher: Delecorte Books for Young Readers
Release Date: December 8, 2009
There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.I'm so glad I re-read this. I know some people don't like this series. Most people it's a love or a hate kind of book. For me it's totally a love. I know there are some things that can bug you, really I do. But I love it. It's a great read that makes you fly through the pages. I didn't write a review for this book because I read it the first time last year and I wrote a review then. =D
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything.

Lost Voices, by Sarah Porter
(Lost Voices, #1)
Publisher: Houghtin Mifflin Harcourt
Release Date: July 1, 2011
Fourteen-year-old Luce has had a tough life, but she reaches the depths of despair when she is assaulted and left on the cliffs outside of a grim, gray Alaskan fishing village. She expects to die when she tumbles into the icy waves below, but instead undergoes an astonishing transformation and becomes a mermaid. A tribe of mermaids finds Luce and welcomes her in—all of them, like her, lost girls who surrendered their humanity in the darkest moments of their lives. Luce is thrilled with her new life until she discovers the catch: the mermaids feel an uncontrollable desire to drown seafarers, using their enchanted voices to lure ships into the rocks. Luce possesses an extraordinary singing talent, which makes her important to the tribe—she may even have a shot at becoming their queen. However her struggle to retain her humanity puts her at odds with her new friends. Will Luce be pressured into committing mass murder? The first book in a trilogy, Lost Voices is a captivating and wildly original tale about finding a voice, the healing power of friendship, and the strength it takes to forgive.I'm really looking forward to reading this. I love mermaids and this one sounds pretty interesting. I love the cover, too. =)
