I read this aloud to my 9-year old son and we both loved it right from the beginning. It is a beautifully written and action-packed ode to following your heart/honoring nature.

I loved this book!!!!!!! It tells the story of Willa, a forest sprite, or faerie, who has been taught that day-people are selfish and evil, but when she befriends one, she discovers that her leader is not always honest... Now she must embark on a dangerous journey, going against her clan and everything she's ever known to save herself, her friend, and the whole forest. I couldn't put in down, and read it in a day!

I love this strong female character that just wants to stand up and do the right thing in a clan where power has gone to the leader's head. Sound familiar? Willa is a lovable character with fun magical powers set in the 1900s when pioneers have begun to encroach on her territory. I love Willa's relationship with Nathaniel, and how even though her story doesn't end like she thought it would, she finds family and friends and her world expands rather than shrinks.
