OTHER by Karen Kincy – Review by Nyia
Please welcome Nyia, our teen book reviewer.
I liked the character right away. The author started off the book with the excitement of Gwen changing. She described it so well that I felt like I was in the room with Gwen. The main character seemed out of place with her parents and had a friend that was like her, a changeling. I also liked the way the author put all magical creatures in the same book. Like vampires, werewolves, changelings, leprechauns and others were talked about and it seemed to all fit together. She showed the reality of teen sex relationships and that they don’t always last. I was so sad for Gwen when her boyfriend disappointed her. I can’t wait for Ms. Kincy’s next book. I give this a 4 out of 5 stars only because I didn’t expect her boyfriend to be such a jerk.
LM Preston’s comments:
This was another gem I found at ALA. Yeah, I was supposed to be selling my own book, but as a writer I love to read. The author signed this beauty for my daughter. I read it with my daughter and we both enjoyed it. There was a mature interaction between two characters in which I had to talk over with my daughter, but it was well done.
