Smart and fun take on the coming of age tale
This is a smart, funny, and brutally honest YA novel that reinvents adolescent sexual awakening as a metaphor for discovering magical powers. Before meeting the brooding Sedge, Valen is the archetypal school misfit. She embodies the awkwardness and isolation of puberty, offering a very human side to the paranormal experience as she undergoes deep and often disturbing changes on her journey to unlocking the mystery of who she really is. I highly recommend this book for all ages because, let's face it, those awkward teenage years never really stop, and who didn't wish they had magical powers to see them through it?

Note to the author: I'm really looking forward to seeing how Valen’s story will end, and I love a juicy love-triangle!
