Demi knows she is far from normal. She can feel it every time she walks near a park, or a tree, or a flower. She has a gift-or a curse; green things call to her. They tug at her soul and she has no idea how to control it. But Demi has it all figured out. She’s going to be a ballerina just like her mother wants. And since the dance studio is the only place she feels like sh ...more

Wow!

This entire book was enjoyable, but the last quarter or so was pretty fantastic.

In the vein of young adult paranormal romance, this story draws on Greek mythology, and ties it all together neatly. The ending chapters show this to be more meaningful than your average "coming of age with a supernatural twist" story.

A fun read for sure. Would love to see it as a major motion picture someday!

WOW what an awesome story. Very original and well just awesome. I can't think of any other word for it. I liked the uniqueness of the plot. I really enjoyed the fact that there was no love triangle and I didn't see the mythology aspect coming. Highly recommend it

I was honestly pretty skeptical when I read the synopsis for this book, but my judgement was flawed. This story blew me away- I love it. I look forward to reading more by this author. I'm a fan! Thanks, goodreads giveaway!

First, I really appreciate that the author made this a full-length book instead of dragging it out in a series. Second, it was such a fun read. Man, I wish I could control trees, grass, flowers, etc.

A beautifully written story with a fairy tale kind of quality combined with ancient mythology. Though the ending was a bit slow to wrap up after the climax, it was still a thoroughly enjoyable read. Loved it.

interesting... the end seemed a little rushed.

Ugh. Such a weird book.
Got to give it credit for being original, that's for sure. Even if I don't mean that in a good way.
Demi and Dylan really were cute together and I enjoyed seeing them find someone who can relate to them. But I lost interest fast once Baal appeared. After that everything starts to get weirder and weirder. Since I was already too curious to find out what really was going on I mostly read the last few chapters just to finish it and finally get to the bottom of this crap. Beca

This story begins with a girl who has power over plants, and parents who try to help her exist in the world without anyone finding out about her power. Eventually, she meets someone who can help her understand this power. Then, things turn dark. I liked this story in the beginning and the middle, but I did not like the way it ended, and how dark it became. Frankly, at that point, I just wanted it to end. The story is very creative and descriptive, but it almost seems like two stories fused toget ...more

I tried this book and I feel horrible for having to be honest. It wasn't for me. I just felt disconnected from the characters. The heroine in the book was telling us how Dylan and she were best friends and how much time they spent together. But the reader didn't see it. Relationship arcs are important when reading and I like to experience them in real time. I love to witness relationships develop and I just couldn't with this story. Dylan and Demi's relationship seemed and felt random. I couldn' ...more

Different is probably the best word I could use to describe this book. Different in a mostly good way. For me, one of the biggest drawbacks of this book was that so much of its length was spent building up the story, only to have it all wrapped up in a rather quick manner. Overall, I did enjoy the book and it was definitely a fast read.
