Book Description from Goodreads:
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly she she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention.


Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she's going crazy. Whenever she's near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she's destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they're still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?


Teaser:
     "Hector needs to eat and everyone else needs a shower. No offense, but pee-ew guys." (page 265). 


I haven't gotten very far into Starcrossed, but considering it's Greek mythology based it has my archaeological heart already a-flutter!
