Switched by Amanda Hocking

ISBN: 9781447205692
Publisher: Tor
Pages: 335

What if your entire world was built on a lie?

Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she’s not the monster her mother claims she is – she does feel that she doesn’t quite fit in...

She’s bored and frustrated by her small town life – and then there’s the secret that she can’t tell anyone. Her mysterious ability – she can influence people’s decisions, without knowing how, or why...

When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night – her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist. Förening, the home of the Trylle.

I received this book from Macmillan for review. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Switched by Amanda Hocking! It was great to read a book for once that didn't totally revolve around romance, with the paranormal aspects taking a backseat! I also loved reading about the Changelings! My favourite character was Willa, although she could easily have ignored Wendy, she decided to help her out with her "studies", as she knew what it was like, because she was a Changeling that had recently returned home to Förening. I love the cover of Switched! I love how the butterflies are bright and colourful, whilst the rest of the image is in black & white, representing the differences between the magical Trylle and the humans.
