    Excellent Read!

    When I picked this up I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but it grabbed me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading! This was an excellent Young Adult novel. The main character, Abisina, was fascinating and raw. Everything, from the storyline, to all of the characters, to the history of this world that Mrs. Abbot has constructed, seems so real and alive-very much like the trees that she wrote about that lived in Watersmeet. It was humorous and tragic, heartwarming and it made me angry in parts. Any book that makes you feel so many emotions is a treasure. And I haven't even begun on the writing! This woman knows her stuff! There was not one instance where I read a line and thought, "That doesn't seem right." This was beautifully written. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment!

    My only issue: What happened to Jorno? I kept expecting to see him pop up somewhere, and I find it hard to believe that such a brilliant character would be destroyed so quickly in the story. I'm holding out for hope that he'll appear in another book.

    Parents: In case you're wondering, this book contains lots of violence and abuse and bullying, but no sex. Think Lord of the Rings and Narnia.
