Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
It´s about Laurel who is a young girl. In about 15 years I believe. She has grow up in a more or less ordinary family. Though she has always been a little difference, since she has only eaten peaches, fruits and vegetables and drink soda.
She discovers how different she is, when she starts in an ordinary high school. After been home schooled all her life.
While discovering the life of becoming social and gets friends. Her body starts to go through some changes, which she has to find out. Why is happening.
She discovers a lot of new things, whit a little help from some friends.
This is a really great book. Though it is also available to read to a younger teen. I think myself with my 22 years. Maybe were a little to old for this book. But I loved it anyway.
I got drawn into this new world. And you got to love the characters.
Easy read and it didn´t ruin the book :) Just makes it available for a broader group of people.
There is fairytale, drama and action, love triangle etc. Everything we love in books :P
I will give this book a 5 out of 6 stars.
This one was tough rating. Because I don´t think there were enough action and things were a little slow. But the fact that I was drawn to the book and couldn´t really put it down. I have to give it a 5 :) That´s also based out of the fact that bought young and older teenager can read this book :)
