We were so excited when Executive Editor Françoise Bui gave us our first glimpse of Delacorte’s beautiful jacket for Anne Greenwood Brown’s YA debut Lies Beneath (about a family of murderous mermaids in Lake Superior coming in June 2012) that we just had to share!
Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. They plan to kill Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother’s death. To draw Hancock out, Calder is assigned the job of seducing his daughter, seventeen year-old Lily. Except that Calder screws everything up by falling in love. He is forced to choose between loving Lily and plotting her father’s death, between loyalty to his sisters or to his new love.
