The Girl Who Never Was (Otherworld #1) by Skylar Dorset (Review)
The Girl Who Never Was is a very unique young-adult fantasy. Selkie – half-faerie, half-ogre – goes in search of her mother with her crush (and faerie), Ben. This story was extremely fast pace and is very hard to keep up with. It’s almost too much sometimes, with events following one another in a dizzying fashion leaving little room to breathe, and the narration sometimes felt a bit distant and made it hard to connect to Selkie. The mystical universe was interesting with its separate yet connected universes and its many many mystical creatures that capture the attention of the reader very effectively. This tale is both simple and complex, original and often bizarre.This magical novel became more and more interesting as the story went on. I give the Girl Who Never Was the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS!
