Review: Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Book: Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Genre: YA Fantasy

Rating: A

For: Fun (and part of my ongoing "support your local author" quest)

I've been avoiding writing this review because I don't quite know how to describe it without giving away too much.

So, Laurel has just moved with her mom and dad to a new house. She's trying to get used to her new life and new school. Things are going okay. She's made friends with a pretty cool, very nice guy who gets her to eat lunch with him and his crowd.

But then she starts freaking out because there's a lump on her back. This lump does not turn out to be what you might think it is.

Meanwhile, she's very concerned about her old house. It's on some land to which she is very much emotionally attached. Her parents are trying to sell it, and it just doesn't feel right. She is able to go back and visit a couple of times, and while there, she meets another guy. And wow! This guy is amazing!

And so the love triangle is formed. The struggle with her mom and her old house intensifies. Discovering who she really is, is quite mind-blowing. All this makes for a very fun story, and yet another YA fantasy that I couldn't put down!

And from what I understand, there's more on the way. At least I really hope there is because the story is just getting going when this particular book ends.
