From Ari - Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Here is a review from Ari for local YA author, Aprilynne Pike's WINGS.
A book Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga calls, "a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds."

Laurel, the main character, has always lived in a small town and she’s never been to public school. When her parents decided to move and the money isn’t coming in as much, her parents make her go to a public high school. She is shy and seems socially awkward until she meets David in her science class. David introduces her to his friend Chelsea and the two really help Laurel blossom. Just as she begins to fit into her school she gets a pimple on her back and after a week she gets petal like wings. She meets a faerie when she goes back to her old home and he tells her she is a faerie but doesn’t believe him. David helps her realize that she is really a faerie.

I don’t want to give away the ending of this book. It didn’t take me but a few days to finish it was so good. Definitely a great summer read if you don’t mind carrying around a hardcover. I hope this story becomes a series, which I think it will. This book truly shows what its like to be DIFFERENT from the people in your life and how people cope with changes.
