Switched by Amanda Hocking
Review by Anna, Sonoma Valley, 8th grade
Switched by Amanda Hocking is the first book in a thrilling new trilogy. This book is about Wendy, a not-so-average girl. After a traumatic experience when she was six, Wendy has been trying for eleven years to prove to herself that she is normal. But after the strange appearance of Finn, Wendy realizes she's anything but normal. With Finn by her side, Wendy is forced into an unwanted adventure, involving royalty, hierarchy, magic abilities, and two totally different types of family.
I loved this first book in this series, and I cannot wait until the second book. Switched is a combination of The Princess Diaries and The Twilight Saga. If you liked either of those series, I would definitely recommend this book to you. It kept me interested throughout the whole book.
