 Fair Youth: Emylee of Forest Springs Summary:

The Fay sisters came to Forest Springs for one reason - me. Me - the girl who never existed. Me - the invisible loner. 

Twelve-year-old Emylee Markette has felt invisible her entire life. Then one fateful afternoon, three beautiful sisters arrive in her sleepy New England town and instantly become the most popular girls at Forest Springs Middle School. To everyone's surprise, the Fay sisters befriend Emylee and welcome her into their close-knit circle. Before long, the shy loner finds herself running with the cool crowd, joining the track team and even becoming friends with her lifelong crush. Through it all, though, Emylee's weighed down by nagging suspicions. Why were the Fay sisters so anxious to befriend her? How do they know some of her inner thoughts? What do they truly want from her? When Emylee eventually discovers that her new friends are secretly fairies, she finds her life turned upside down yet again and must make some life-changing decisions. Fair Youth: Emylee of Forest Springs marks the first volume in an exciting new book series.

Cindy's Review: This stop is supposed to have an author interview, but since I got the book literally the day before the tour, I don't think I could interview in time, so sorry about that.

I think Emylee of Forest Springs was quite an adventurous read. The plot is simple, not complicating and hard. And I didn't even bother to turn the book from pdf from epub, because it was a short read. Only about 100 pages. ;) The book ended quickly with a complete understanding of what happened. And even though the romance didn't work out right, I think it's alright. Because I think this book would be more of an elementary or middle school read than a young adult book. Either way, it was really fun reading and living in this book's world. ;)

Rate: (1-10) 8.5!
