Wings by Aprilynne Pike
New York: Harper Press
Laurel is 15 year old girl going through a lot of changes in her life. Her family is moving from a very isolated community, where Laurel had been home schooled, to a larger community where she would be going to public high school. Big adjustment! She immediately meets David on her first day of school and an instant friendship builds—sometimes David is too understanding to be believable. But it is nice to think in this world that there are friends who will unconditionally love you—even if they find out you are a fairy. Laurel didn’t know herself until a plant grew out of her back that looked like wings. The fantasy begins as Laurel begins to discover who she is and begin to deal with living in two realms where a boy in each realm are fighting for her affection! This appears to be the first in a series. Girls will love this coming of age, romance fantasy.
