I love it when a book that intends to be creepy is legitimately creepy and not contrived creepy. (Sidebar: just how many times can I use the word creepy in one sentence?) The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff is an eerie coming of age tale. Mackie Doyle is a replacement aka a changeling, meaning that he has taken the place of a kidnapped child. Mackie is a 16 year old boy with an aversion to iron and blood. He is dying. We see him yearn for a life of normalcy. Yet, the underworld of Gentry, where Mackie came from, comes calling when they steal Mackie's friend-girl's baby sister.
