Family secrets. Lost memories. And the arrival of an ancient magical ability that will reveal everything.
Sixteen-year-old Katla LeBlanc has just moved from Los Angeles to Minnesota. As if it weren't enough that her trendy fashion sense draws stares, Katla soon finds out that she's a Stork, a member of a mysterious order of women tasked with a very unique duty. But Katla's biggest challenge may be finding her flock at a new school. Between being ignored by Wade, the arrogant jock she stupidly fooled around with, and constantly arguing with gorgeous farm boy and editor-in-chief Jack, Katla is relieved when her assignment as the school paper's fashion columnist brings with it some much-needed friendship. But as Homecoming approaches, Katla uncovers a shocking secret about her past — a secret that binds her fate to Jack's in a way neither could have ever anticipated. With a nod to Hans Christian Andersen and inspired by Norse lore, Wendy Delsol's debut novel introduces a hip and witty heroine who finds herself tail-feathers deep in small-town life.
Such a fantastic, entertaining book! Loved it a lot! Must read more of this series, because yeah, this was a really special, awesome book, and I want more! It's just that simple, good book = I want more books like it, in this case, more in the series!
These were just very strong characters, Katla, who's dealing with this move-then the Stork thing-and then there's Jack, with a connection to Katla, and yeah, that was really quite awesome, that he's special, too!
Lots of twist sand turns, and I just loved the Storks, and the hats, and the dreams that they have for the options the babies could go to, that was just really fantastic! Really enjoyed this world, and I can't wait for more!
Such a great book, and now I have to reread more!
