Review by wyvernfriend
Laurel thought she had problems, coping with being in a school instead of being home-schooled and trying to work out how her life has changed since moving away from her home place. Her parents are happy but distracted, setting up a new business.Then she finds a lump on her back and what happens next changes her life.It's an interesting story, a little rushed in places and a world I'd like to know more about. The conflict between the two guys in her life is a little glossed over really rather than explored but I look forward to finding out what happens next.
Review by nicola26
This book started off with a quirky girl moving to a new town, new school, and she meets a boy in Biology class. A very overused formula lately, but it did have some significance as the book went on so I was able to overlook it. The story is about a young girl, Laurel, who discovers she is a faerie. The faeries in this book aren't the ones in general folklore, so it was interesting to read. I found Laurel irritating at parts- mostly because she was stringing David along from start to finish. It was a quick, easy read but not amazing.
