Wings: A Fairy Tale by E.D. Baker - OPTIONAL

Baker, E.D., Wings: A Fairy Tale, 320 pgs. Bloomsbury USA Children's Books



Tamisin loves to dance. She has ever since she was a little girl. The compulsion to dance gets stronger as the moon waxes full and on the eve of a full moon, nothing can stop her. Her parents have even had to lock the door to keep Tamisin from dancing in her pjs in the moonlight. So, it should be no surprise that Tamisin auditions and makes the dance team at her school. But the compulsion to dance is not the only thing odd about Tamisin. She can see things . . . goblins and fairies and the goblins are after her. Tamisin soon learns that there is more to her past than she thought and that she has an essential role to play in the world of the Fey.

This story had such potential, but the author dropped the ball. After her wings grow in the conflict in the world of Fey and its resolution fall flat.
