#BookReview of Beware the Wild by @nataliecparker

Beware the Wild (Beware the Wild, #1)
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: HarperTeen
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Mystery, Romance
About the Book: It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp—the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance—and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her. 

This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.






About the Author: 
Natalie C. Parker is the author of the Beware the Wild duology, the Seafire trilogy, and the editor of Three Sides of a Heart. She earned her BA in English literature from the University of Southern Mississippi and her MA in gender studies from the University of Cincinnati. She grew up in a Navy family finding home in coastal cities from Virginia to Japan. Now, she lives surprisingly far from any ocean on the Kansas prairie where she runs Madcap Retreats with her wife.


Do I Recommend this book? Oh heck yes!!

Notes and Opinions: I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat (bed). We've all at some point have read books about changelings. Now this story takes place in very different place: in the Southern part of the US. That's the part that really made me want to check it out. There's just so much that is the same but so different too. I'm honestly in love with this book. The world building is just so beautifully written. This book grabbed me from literally just the cover all the way to the end. Totally worth calling out of work for (oops). Time to call out again and read book 2!!
