My review:
I could not put this book down. I read it straight through. I LOVE Ireland and it is seriously a bucket list item of mine. I will be seriously disappointed if when the day comes I do arrive there and there is absolutely nothing mystical, magical, supernatural or paranormal. Green is my favorite color and when I think of Ireland, I see green. (yes totally random bu true)!!

Emily's mom died after a battle with cancer. Losing your mom is never easy, especially when you are a young girl. Being left with a shell of a father and a mean Aunt that makes your life a living hell, Emily is not a happy teen. Her best friends are her life line. They have no clue how bad she really has it but they suspect it is not good at all!

When Emily and her friends are in her awesome tree house, a very special guest visits. This changes Emily and her BFF's lives forever. Emily is taken on an incredible journey to Ireland that not only makes her feel closer to her beloved mother but also challenges her in every way possible. Will Emily ever see her dad again? Will Emily's new life and new found knowledge separate her and the people most dear to her heart? Want an answer to these questions? THEN BUY THIS BOOK NOW! You can buy online in paperback or ebook. Seriously...this was a great read. The story line stays very active and right on track. There is always a great reason to turn that next page.

I highly suggest this book if you love to read YA with good values hidden through out the book, magic, coming of age realizations and just a great story!

  1. I prefer paperback books. There is something about holding a book that is different from a ebook that gives me more enjoyment. Please enter me in contest. Tore923@aol.com

  2. I prefer paperbacks. It's what I grew up reading I guess. Holding a 'real' book in my hand feels right.

  4. I prefer physical copies, whether it be paper or hardback. Ebooks are convenient, but they're just not the same to me.

  10. I prefer paperbacks. I don't like reading a book on my computer, and lacking an ereader, I would rather not read on my smart phone because it's so small!

  11. I prefer books, but I have read some books on my ipod with the kindle app, because I couldn't get them in book form or they were a lot cheaper for the ereader than buying the book.

  15. I'm definitely a dead tree reader. When a book fall from your sleeping body it doesn't break. You drop an e-reader and you hope the warranty covers the repairs.
