    Not your typical YA Paranormal read!

    This was a good YA book. The story is unique. There is energy that plays out well through the scenes. The MC who has considered herself as one who doesn't fit in anywhere is actually gifted, unbeknownst to her. Separated from her parents due to their unexpected demise, Natalie (MC) can't seem to get the pieces of information leading to their death to add up. Liam might hold the answer to this.

    Though a feather light 'love triangle' seems to develop, this is not a YA romance novel but a paranormal novel. This story would befit teen boys just as well as teen girls because of the type of paranormalcy and the dynamics of the story. Also Liam is a strong, supportive male character with a large roll. ;-) As the story develops Natalie and Liam are plagued with the typical high school bickery.

    I will say there was a scene toward the last 10% of the book that seem to interrupt the flow for me. I understand the purpose of the second half of that scene but I feel the first half wasn't necessary. I found myself skimming through it until they go to the second part which held pertinent activity to the story's ending.

    All in all it was a fun and intriguing book!

    Great Read! Highly Recommend for All Ages!

    The Clearing has a unique plotline that keeps you guessing throughout. I could not put it down! As an English teacher, I would recommend this to any middle through high school student who liked any genre of literature. As an adult who likes reading, I would recommend this to anyone who likes a light read with great characters and a great story! Surprise ending and fabulous character development - you loved the good guys and loved to hate the bad guys. Highly recommend!!

    Great Read!

    The first few pages grabbed hold of me with a vice grip. The pace slowed a bit for a few chapters after that but then it picked right back up and took me on a ride I won't soon forget. If you love magic, mystery, and great characters that you'll be rooting for then you must read this novel.
