Wayfarer

Grades 7 and Up / Ages: 12 and Up

This book did not have the impact I expected it to have. I think it is for the younger young adult audience. The story has wonderful characters and great scene building but it did not have the spark that makes me sit on the edge of my seat turning the pages like gasping for breathes.
 
This is however, a good story, it is compelling but not quite air-gasping compelling. I liked the nature loving faeries and thier house in the tree, it makes me think of days spent in childhood pretending to be a faerie with magic and a faerie court. 
 
The writing has a beautiful nice feel to it and even when the bad guys are around you can’t help but feel that somehow everything will be alright. I think that Linden was a bit to young for her age and I loved Timothy’s vibrancy and willingness to help no matter the cost.
 
This book made me smile from page one until the end and it is a cute read for a tween or younger teen.
