Happy, happy day! This fantasy is right up my alley. Part coming-of-age story, part love story and part magical power story.
This is a story about a girl who discovers her inborn powers and her struggle to learn to use them - and not be used by others. She also loses her innocence and naivete by trusting the wrong people.
I was intrigued by the premise and held captive by the plot. I read this book quickly - much to the dismay and neglect of my family.
Pick this up. It's fantastic. No swearing and no sex. Yay!
