Jess Morgan, a young girl who doesn’t know who she really is yet. She’s had a rough life growing up and living with her mother, an alcoholic. She doesn’t fit in at school and she really doesn’t care to. Jess finds out that her life is not what she thought it was. She keeps to herself and does what she wants most of the time. Will she ever find her way in life?
Caleb Farmer, a young man who would love to spend his days drawing instead of working at his fathers hardware store. The store isn’t as popular as it once was and there are few customers. His relationship with his father is strained and his mother’s health is failing. Will his life ever be happy?
A good book that shows the lives of two young adults who are trying to find their way through life and find their place in the world. Jess is a strong young woman who stands up for herself and those that she cares about. Caleb is a young man who wants to live his life and find happiness, not be bullied by someone who is supposed to care about him. They will go through some scary times as well as some rough times. We are introduced to a world that is magical, scary, and at times dark. There are some faeries that you would not want to meet in the dark of night, but there are some that fit the ideas that most have of faeries.
If you like stories of coming of age, faeries, twists, and family secrets coming to light, I highly recommend that you read this book. I give this book a 4 star review.
