I came upon this book quite by accident because it was recommended to me by my cousin's daughter. We were talking about books, as we often do, and I was asking if they had read Wings by Aprilynne Pike but I hadn't clarified the author so they thought I was talking about this book. After a bit of confusing conversation, we realized that we weren't talking about the same book at all, only different ones, but with almost enough similarities that it took a few minutes to notice that. I must admit I haven't read Wings by Aprilynne Pyke and my knowledge of that book in the conversation was going strictly off of Amanda's review of it. Perhaps, I'll get to reading/reviewing that one later. For now, I'll tell you about Jason Lethcoe's Wings and the Mysterious Mr. Spines.

This is the first book aimed for ages 9 - 12 that will be part of a series of books based on these simply written yet defining characters. It was stunning to see how this book magically came alive. Surprisingly, I became drawn into Edward Macleod's world; tall, awkward with a very annoying itch on his back. The kind of itch that is just in the right spot on his back that he can't reach to scratch it himself. So, it stays bothersome until one day....
Isn't the cover art, well, amazing? I loved how the light reflects behind this beautiful lonesome looking boy.
