really liked it

This is an enjoyable young adults book. Raea loved her parents but they were both killed in a freak tornado that demolished her house whilst she was on a sleep over at a friends house when she was very young. She has lived with her paternal uncle and aunt since then. She is a normal teenage ~ she is just a couple of months from graduating high school and going to college. She has a group of close knit friends and a bully who delights in tormenting her, especially about the strange blue birth marks on her hands. A gorgeous foreign student starts at their school and takes an immediate interest in Raea, which she finds very flattering as she's never had a boyfriend. However, she also starts becoming very aware of another student, Elis. Elis is ignored by most people as he doesn't mix with other students but she finds herself becoming more drawn to him. She keeps dreaming of her Mum. Then one night she suddenly wakes up in incredible pain and finds giant wings bursting out of her back. That is when things really start happening to Raea, not least of which is when she finds out that she isn't even human! Raea's life then starts to get really complicated as she tries to decide who she is more attracted to ~ Pallin or Elis, she has to come to terms with the fact that not only is she an alien but she has other talents too, not least of which is the ability to fly! Raea also has someone that wants to kidnap and then kill her. There is a very pushy reporter trying to uncover the very secrets that Raea is trying to hide. This was an enjoyable read and I have purchased the sequel.
