Switched 

by Amanda Hocking

When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right.  She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her.  Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit.  But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth:  Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.   

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening.  And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…

In this book the main character Wendy learns that she is a Trylle (or as we more commonly call them – trolls), who was switched at birth and must now return home where she will one day serve as queen. I found the way the Trylle are described in this book to be unique and unlike any of the neon-haired dolls I pictured owning  as a child. In fact, Trylle are described as beautiful creatures with a sometimes  green hue to their skin and magical powers that have dwindled over time. This is a new take on fantasy if you are looking for something different.  -Kathy,  Teen Librarian
