Aprilynne Pike
HarperTeen, 2009. 294 p. Young Adult

What if you awoke one morning and noticed an odd blemish on your back? But instead of disappearing after the usual timeframe, it started growing until it reached the size of a large tumor and eventually sprouted…into WINGS—gorgeous, soft, petal-like wings. At fifteen, Laurel doesn’t want to stand out from her new classmates but this is going to be difficult to hide. Not daring to tell her adoptive parents, she enlists the help of her new friend David, who discovers Laurel just might be an actual Faerie.

addicts rejoice--with an endorsement by Stephenie Meyer, how can fans resist this read-a-like faerie tale adventure? It looks like Pike has written the next big read and with its cliff-hanger ending, the series has just begun.

I enjoyed this fast paced novel and am looking forward to the second book in the series.

This is a sweet story that is very simply written. Although the writing wasn't anything special or noteworthy, I still enjoyed reading it.

I really liked this book also. It was a quick, exciting read and it was just what I needed to help me escape for a little while.
