Wings, by Aprilynne Pike

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful- too beautiful for words. Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever. (Summary from Amazon.com)

This book--Wings, by Aprilynne Pike--is about a girl who finds out she is a faerie. (How cool would that be?) Well, Laurel doesn't think it's cool. Her life is so normal that when she wakes up with a flower on her back.... she ....well... freaks out. So she doesn't tell her parents and thinks it will go away. Except, it doesn't, so she goes to her best friend, who is very good at science. He agrees to help her, and... well... you have to read it to find out.

There's one more thing. There's a mysterious boy (Laurel knew him when she was little) who's a faerie too,  and for some reason Laurel doesn't remember him. So read to find out what happens and why she doesn't remember this boy.

I loved this book; it was great! There was no dull moment, and it had some great humor here and there. There's also some romance, but not too much. I did not love this book for only one reason... It ended. Now there's a sequel, but Wings is just one of those books you just don't want to end. In case you want to know, the next book in the series is Spells.
