Review: Shifting

Title: Shifting
Author: Bethany Wiggins


Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 27th, 2011
Pages: 353
Ages: 12 and up






Ok so I finished this book in 1 DAY.  YES It was that good.  I stayed up till almost 2am to finish reading it.  So the low down.  The back of my copy says Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue.  Well they were right.  I would have to say that this is Twilight but in a good way and without the vampires.  




Our main character is Maggie Mae an almost 18 years old (yay more almost adults) who has been shuffled around to a lot of foster homes before she ends up in Silver City.  There is no love triangle which I was grateful for.  And you don't really find out what our leading man is until near the end of the book.  Which by the end of the book when you think you know what Maggie is Bethany Wiggins throws you a curve ball and scares the ever living HELL out of you.  (have tissues)  


As I had said that this is like Twilight I want to explain our leading lady is so unlike Bella you will jump for joy. She is someone that you would want your daughters to look up to.  At most times she is filled with so much fear that I think it would be deliberating. Yet somehow she works passed it and moves on.  Even when her leading man leaves her she is dying of a broken heart but she still pushes on unlike Bella when Edward leaves.  


So this book get 5 Trees because it was OUTSTANDING!!
