Wondrous Strange

by Lesley Livingston

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd | December 16, 2009 | Mass Market Paperbound

Wondrous Strange is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Kelley Winslow is living her dream. Seventeen years old, she has moved to New York City and started work with a theatre company. Sure, she''s only an understudy for the Avalon Players, a third-tier repertory company so far off-Broadway it might as well be in Hoboken, but things are looking up-the lead has broken her ankle and Kelley''s about to step into the role of Titania the Faerie Queen in Shakespeare''s A Midsummer Night''s Dream. But Faeries are far more real than Kelley thinks, and a chance encounter in Central Park with a handsome young man named Sonny Flannery plunges her into an adventure she could never have imagined. Sonny and Kelley find themselves drawn to each other-and into a terrible plot that could spell disaster for both New York and the Faerie realm alike.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely great! A refreshing take on the realm of Faerie and how they interact with mortals. Kelley is a stubborn heroine and her love interest Sonny is up for the challenge. The ending was a little abrupt, but it's a good piece of work for a young adult novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Book Ever Written I could not put it down! Livingston has created a work of art, unlike any the world has ever seen! A perfect blend of fantasy, romance, and an easy book to relate to (in some ways). I could read this book one-thousand times and never get bored. The characters are so complex, yet relatable. I give it a 100 out of 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from faeries ♥ OMG. love this book. It was so good. I absolutely couldn't put it down. I got in so much trouble in class for the 2 days I was reading this book. You think my english teacher would be happy that someone was reading, but unfortunately she knew I was one of those students who loved to read and didn't mind reading for assignments. Anyways this book was part of White Pine this year, and I couldn't wait till read it since a lot of people have recommended this book. I hate myself for waiting so long now, and if you haven't read this book I highly recommend you read it. NOW! XD
