"When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit. But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…

This edition includes the bonus story "The Vittra Attacks".

My Thoughts:
Wendy has always felt different. All the more so due to the fact when she was just six years old her mother called her a monster and then tried to kill her. But when creepy Finn shows up and tells her who she truly is does Wendy believe what her mother said.

She goes back with Finn to her real home. Where things are just as difficult forher to proccess.

I wasn't sure if I would like a novel about trolls. However Amanda's writing is so magical that I was glued to this book. I was enchanted by the world set up in Trylle.

I loved everything in Switched. I hope that Finn and Wendy are given a chance in the next two books in this series. Also enjoyed the extra short story. I want to get these series for my collection.

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
