Waiting on Wednesday (99)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week is:

Sirenz by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman (June 2011)

Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when they find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes—with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades—the god of the underworld—himself. To make them atone for what they’ve done, Hades forces the teens to become special-assignment Sirens, luring to the Underworld any individual whose unholy contract is up.

But just because they have an otherworldly part-time job now doesn’t mean Meg and Shar can ignore life’s drudgeries (work) or pleasures (fashion!). Finding that delicate balance between their old and new responsibilities turns out to be harder than they expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there’s the matter of the fine print in their contracts.
I'm not the biggest fan of the cover of this one but I think the premise sounds great, so I can't wait to see what the execution will be like. Plus, it's going to be published by Flux and I tend to always love their books!
