Waiting on Wednesday: Teardrop

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. It let us spotlight books that haven't been released, but that we can't wait for. This week I've picked Teardrop by Lauren Kate, which is scheduled to be released on October 22nd, 2013.

Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.

But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.
I've read a few books by Lauren Kate, consisting of some of her Fallen series. (Although I'm not all caught up and still need to finish the series.) I really enjoyed the first few books that I read and I love the synopsis for this book. The story idea is so intriguing and it sounds really new and fresh. Also, it comes out the day after my birthday!
So what are you waiting for this Wednesday?
