When Nadia's family moves to Captive's Sound, she instantly realizes there's more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her town. Mateo has lived in Captive's Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed - and that curse will cause him to believe he's seeing the future...until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl--Nadia--from a car accident come true, he knows he's doomed.
Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family's terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone around them. (Summary from Goodreads)

Magic and mystery? Those two words immediately pull me in! I really enjoyed Gray's book Fateful, so I plan on giving this one a chance, too :)

Three high school girls become the avenging Furies of Greek legend.
We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephenie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.
We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious. (Summary from Goodreads)

Oh how we've all felt this way one day here and there...this one sounds so interesting!

What are you waiting on this week?
