    Loved it!

    The first thing about this book that caught my eye was the name. As a reader before I even picked this book up I knew that changelings referred to babies stolen by fairies. I had read many books about the fairy that was put in the mortal world and they always ended up being related to someone important. Either the king or somebody equally important. What I really like about the book was the fact that the main character was a human raised in fairy world or in this case New York Between. While the cover looked a little odd I was much too interested in the summary to pass it up. I am really glad that I gave the book a chance. It was a fresh look on an old favorite. I loved how Delia Sherman was able to describe and identify the creatures that Neef encountered throughout the book without making me feel like she thought I was a half-wit. My attention was hooked from the first chapter and it was not moved until I finished it. Even though I knew that she had to do something that would get her sacrificed to the Wild Hunt for there to be a book I was still on the edge of my seat biting my nails trying to stop her. I especially loved meeting Neef's copy and how the two of them became friends gradually through the book. Even though Jennifer was the fairy she was not the one to do everything but she did have her own role and did have many important parts. Her reaction to the new world that she had originally come from but now found so different was at turn funny and annoying. Neef's reaction to going outside the park is also interesting. I really wish that Delia Sherman writes a book about Neef visiting the Outside world so that I could see her reaction to non-talking animals. I would also be happy with more from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In conclusion, the book is cute and funny and interesting and thrilling and so many more positive words that when it comes down to it all mean that you should read it yourself.

    big city adventure with all kinds of magic!

    As many people know, I'm not that big on fairies, but this is the kind of fairy tale I love: set in the modern day, with a bold young girl who is trying to survive the fairy realm's elaborate rules. Neef is a Changeling, stolen to be raised by fairies, with a fairy left in her place. Living in Central Park and closely watched by her fairy family, all Neef wants--like any smart kid--is freedom, but in the fairy world, freedom can be deadly. Neef has to use her wits when she breaks the Rules. If she doesn't succeed on a small quest, the Wild Hunt will have her, and she will die. The story is a tense and scary one, the characters wonderful. I love Delia Sherman's adult books, and I am delighted with this one for younger readers. I hope she writes more!
