Review : Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Aprilynne Pike's best-selling debut, WINGS, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl named Laurel who discovers she is a faerie. When Laurel is thrust into the midst of a centuries-old battle between faeries and trolls, she's torn between a human and a faerie love. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
I was waiting for this book to be in the store, and when my sister got it, I was very very happy. I actually fought with her because I wanted to read it first! But, after reading it, I know, I shouldn't have.
OK, now let me tell you a little about this book. Laurel is the main character of the story. She is 15 years old, home schooled from the beginning and living in a small town. There they have their beautiful home built on a land which is in the name of Laurel’s mother. But due to financial problems, Laurel’s family decides to shift in a different place. But here, she has to join High School. She finds difficult in the beginning to settle in her school, but then, it becomes easy with her new friend named David. Oh yes, he is head over heels for Laurel! He is always there to help her with her troubles.
One fine day, she finds a bump on her back! She is terrified by it. The bump grows into a beautiful flower after a few days. Now, I really liked this concept. Usually there are wings, but here there is a plant growing on her back.
