Novel by M. J. Boshers
One day, you're hanging out with your friends, visiting the mall and oogling over boys, then said boys try to kidnap you, waving sticks that actually throw enough force to knock someone off their fee! That's what happened to Sophie. She's nearly killed, then her life is never, ever the same...
The Faewitch, by M. J. Boshers is about a girl who discovers she's not human. She's a lot of something else. She also discovers the world is bigger than the one she's always lived - so much bigger, in fact, that she actually crosses over into another realm. A place where fairies, wizards and more are real.
The Faewitch carries a very interesting storyline. It's filled with amazing fantasy and possibilities beyond anything Sophie could have imagined, but I didn't like how it all played out. Everything happened too fast. I don't mean the introduction; that was amazing and meant to be fast. The author didn't allow me to enjoy the character. Instead of coming off as a girl who'd just had her entire world swept from beneath her, I felt she was a disrespectful brat who never knew when to keep her mouth shut! She stood before a king, who just happened to be her grandfather and nearly went off! The penalty for just saying something is death in some parts- but she just fusses, yells and goes off on tangents! I didn't like her at all, so I didn't care for her. Other characters were much better.
I also didn't like the proper feel of the teenaged conversations. No one, no matter who they are speaks THAT proper, unless they're British! Sometimes you need a conjunction, some abbreviation or simple slang! It didn't feel real enough for me.
I can say that I believe Boshers has a future in storytelling. Her ideas of the novel were unique and fun on many instances. I just think this one isn't the one to carry her to fame. I'll be looking for more.
