Switched by Amanda Hocking

Released: July 5, 2010
Publisher: CreateSpace
Rated: YA

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until eleven years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right.

With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy's not sure she wants to be a part of it.


What I thought:

I'm not usually a fan of Romeo and Juliet stories but I'm hoping that since this is a trilogy it won't go the way of Shakespeare. I liked the story, this was my first changling story and I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't anything super amazing, but it had a good story and I liked the characters.

I'm hoping that Wendy's family plays a part in this because it broke my heart about her human family (you'll know why when you read it, don't want to spoil it). I was a little surprised to see how Wendy's real mother was cold to her. I'm not sure how this plays out later, but it was hard to see. Wendy was promised a place she'd finally fit in but she realizes she just might not fit in there either.

I'm going to try out the second book, I like the premise of this one. While it wasn't anything amazing, it was still entertaining.

I'm wondering how Amanda Hocking writes. I think I'll have to get one of her books soon. :D Thanks for the review.
