Waiting on Wednesday: Salt & Storm

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper
Pub. Date: September 23, 2014


Goodreads says, "Sixteen-year-old Avery Roe wants only to take her rightful place as the witch of Prince Island, making the charms that keep the island’s whale men safe and prosperous at sea. But before she could learn how to control her power, her mother, the first Roe woman in centuries to turn her back on magic, stole Avery away from her grandmother. Avery must escape from her mother before her grandmother dies, taking with her the secrets of the Roes’ power. When Avery awakens from a dream foretelling her own murder, she realizes time is running short—for her and for the people of her island, who, without the Roes, will lose their ships and the only life they know. With the help of Tane, a tattooed harpoon boy from the Pacific Islands, Avery plots her escape from her mother and unravels the mysteries of her mother’s and grandmother’s pasts. Becoming a witch may prevent her murder and save her island from ruin, but Avery discovers it will also require a sacrifice she never expected—one she might not be able to make."
First of all, I am obsessed with the cover. I really like its simplicity. I also haven't read a good witch book in ages, so hopefully this one will fit the bill.  Plus, it takes place on an island? Yes, please! What do you guys think?

  10. I just saw this one on Netgalley! I'm not going to request as my TBR is a little out of control at the moment. It sounds good though. I love the idea of witchy books but they can sometimes be hit and miss for me.
