Ivy was an amazing story, great writing style and descriptions and a new twist in the YA Genre. Ivy is about a Lake Dweller, one of many in a secret society. The Lake Dwellers live at a hidden location where they can be close to a sacred Lake. Lake Dwellers have the ability to heal but after a certain amount of time must enter the lake in order to cleanse themselves of all the pain they have taken in from others.

Ivy is one of the few lake dwellers that lives away from the lake and only returns

An interesting refreshing take on the urban fantasy genre, that offers compelling characters that aren't vampires. Very creative and suspenseful.
This book was Fantastic. I could not stop reading it, I finished it in two days & that says alot!! Leesa Birch is an amazing author. For the first book in a series it was jam packed with thrills & an amazing love story. I feel so connected to the characters & I can not wait for the next book! I am dying to know what happens next.

I never know what to say when people ask about me, so here’s a few snippets of myself…

I never got to finish high school. And even though I value knowledge and would always encourage others to do so, I don’t think it’s necessary to write a book. After all, an imagination isn’t something that can be taught. Ask any artist.

I live quietly in Birmingham with my three cats and I wouldn’t have it any ot
