When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.
Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit. But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.
Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…
There are many books out there in this world that have captured my heart. However there are only few books that that have captured it from the very beginning, and this book is one of them. Ms. Hocking has created a world that I was able to enter and let myslef be captured by the words that told a story of one girl, Wnedy, who's life was about to be changed forever.
I see Wendy as a character who is stong, and capable of achieving anything. However, she is really picky about stuff (food, and shoes ect.) Her family, not including her mom, are some of the nicest people that one person could dream of having. Althoguh they have to put up with the pickiness of Wendy and her problems that happens, they always seem to care and love her at the end of the day. This is what a family is all about. Now for her mom, well all I can say that will describe her is "crazy." Yes, I can imagine how hard it must be to figure out that your child was switched when they were born, but going to the extreme of killling her was just going overboard.
I think the plot was well thought out. I was able to enter this world and not want to leave it
until the last page. This story was one of orginality that, like I said before, captured my heart to its fullest potential. With its many twists and turns, this book was one I could and would never want to put down. Filled with adventure, love, hate, and every emotion one could feel possibly.
I recommend this book to everyone out there in the reading world. I just want to say let this book touch your heart because for me it did more than that.
I give this book 5 souls!
