Description:
With one wish made in Willow Forest, Soli and Lucy are pulled into Faerieground – and into the middle of an ancient battle. In the faerie kingdom, an evil queen searches for her daughter while the palace crumbles. To save her best friend, Soli must find her hidden strength. This is a story about friendship, growing up, and the power of wishes. This is a story about faeries and spells, queens and lost princesses, fireflies and four-leaf clovers. But mostly, this is a story about love.
 
 
Review:

**ARC was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

I was browsing the YA, section on NetGalley, and found this novel. I’m not sure why they categorized this under Young Adult, its more like a serial novel for children 13 and under.

The two main characters Soledad (Soli for short) and Lucy are 13 years, old. They’re best friend, more like sister, but they are opposites in every way.

So basically, When Lucy does something to betray Soli, they are walking in the enchanted forest, where there are faeries, here Soli wishes Lucy away– she suddenly disappears, and Soli has to try to get her back.

Every few pages, there were illustration, which were well done, they really complimented the words to the story and take the reader deeper into the story.  It kind of reminded me of a novel I read in grade 4, The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley.

It’s a solid read, but nothing like I expected.  I expected something more like the novel A Shimmer of Angels, a fun, entertaining, original read, where you get attached to the characters, can’t put the book down, read til 4 am and cant wait to read the next novel in the series.

Overall, it was a solid read, it was original.  The story like was okay, a VERY VERY VERY easy read, it made a pleasant read but, it wan NOT a YA novel!
