I thought my quest to discover the truth about my Mothers mysterious disappearance, so long ago, had come to a sad and horrible end.

Awaiting Destiny is a cute story whose target audience appears to be 'Tweens but also provides a fun read for YA's who need a respite from the day-to-day effort of appearing to be "grown up". For those readers who are - ahem! - somewhat older than the target audience, Awaiting Destiny can serve as a brief but very pleasant vacation from being an adult.

For young readers who enjoy Emily Windsnap. This reads more like a Disney movie than a book, and I felt Destiny was too passive for most of the story. The lack of tension and problem solving made it difficult to maintain interest, although there were some good world building parts. I do appreciate reading lighter stories with humor, but ultimately that was not enough for a better rating.

I liked the concept, but not how it was played out. I felt like this was a less experienced author who wrote it. There were a few grammatical errors. The wasn't a lot of character development. I also found that there was no 'I don't know you' kind of awkwardness with the family she never met.

This was an amazing book, the two main characters were so love able and the story line wasn't complicated and easy to follow. Amazing writing and it was a really nice book and a relief from the books with so much drama (: haha

Your an amazing writer (:

I believe life is simply more interesting when you weave a little humor, enchantment, romance and especially adventure into it! I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my family and spend my free time writing, playing with my pets, gardening and kayaking.
