My friend (well…best-roman-friend/wannabe author/book advisor…sometimes) came up from Rome in April and said “Take these and read them”. Sooooo…being the AHMAZING friend I am I did.
The story- Zara (BTW- if you’ve never been C.H.E.C.K. O.U.T. A.N.Y. Z.A.R.A. C.L.O.T.H.I.N.G. S.T.O.R.E.!!) is devasted after her step-father’s death and so her mother send her to live with her grandma in Maine, a place she never truly visited though her family lived there. The day after she arrives she’s sent to school (uhm…okay. In the book Maine is cold – like Forks – and she goes to school on the second day – like Twilight – just saying) There she meets friends and of course two hot guys are already fighting for her attention (I wouldn’t be complaining). Weird stuff keeps happening though. She finds golden dust on the driveway and on the back of Nick’s (sexay huh?) jacket. Plus: some weirdo’s been stalking her (what’s up with that?!) She doesn’t know who to trust and what to think. Turns out her gran, best friend, sorta boyfriend and bestfriend’s handicapped crush are all some sort of shapeshifter (and yes…Nick IS a WOLF!!! Odd.) She also discovers she finds pixiedust everywhere…..Uhm….odd!!!
Well…if I say more I’m kind of going to ruin the book for you…
I enjoyed the book. It wasn’t spectacular but it was a nice time-filler and I really liked the characters (especially Issy and Gran.) I suggest this book to pretty much anyone. It’s a nice and light fantasy.
