Description

Homeschooled for years, Laurel Sewell is nervous about attending a public high school, but her parents believe this new experience will be good for her. Forging relationships with her peers and learning at the same pace as other students is all part of the normal sophomore life Laurel is supposed to have. Laurel is less than enthusiastic about the plan. She's always been different than other teens-with luminous pale skin, a non-existent appetite, and the unusual ability to withstand the cold. But soon she's making new friends-including a cute boy in her bio class-and things are looking up. Until, one morning, she feels a lump on her back, and a whole new adventure begins to unfold. Drawing favorable comparisons to Stephenie Meyer's megahit Twilight Saga, Aprilynne Pike's magical debut novel Wings is a romantic coming-of-age fairy tale. Mandy Siegfried's narration will whisk teenage readers into a fantastical new world. "Neatly mixes the everyday with the otherworldly."-Booklist

Professional reviews

"Most teenage girls would be delighted to discover that their perfect looks come from fairy ancestry--but not Laurel. Mandy Siegfried faithfully conveys Laurel's fear of being different and her disbelief of her magical identity. Siegfreid's credible teen voices will draw in young listeners, who will identify with Laurel's desire to fit in. It will be Team David versus Team Tamani as listeners meet Lauren's two potential boyfriends--one mortal, one fairy. Through Siegfried's voicings, they emerge vividly as the sincere dreamboat and the mysterious stranger in a teenage love triangle. Siegfried manages to smooth over mundane dialogue and plot contrivances to strengthen the story. The tense pacing of Laurel and David's death-defying escape from thug trolls is especially delicious to hear. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
