Books are the most portable past time you can go on an adventure, fall in love, and save the world. The best kind of story is those that linger in your head days after you've finished the book. And that's what reading is for me the search for the next book that lingers in my head.

The Waters and the Wild

The Waters & the Wild - Francesca Lia Block The Waters and the wild is a small story 113 pages in full it reminded me of another book I read some time ago. The Replacement it had the same feel, that slow underlining morbid vibe. Changelings are somber beings every book I’ve read they constantly question who and what they are and its no different in The Water and the Wild. Bee constantly questions who she was. Bee spelt like honey bee spent a lot of time in her head.Change was in the wind when she receives a visit from a twin looking just like her. Strange things begin to happen and new changes in Bee’s life kick into motion Bee fights it of course but event are beyond her control. She mets Sarah and makes friends with the strange weird girl, even starts to like a boy. Haze the school nerd another school outcast begins to stir feelings in her. And for the first time she had friends and didn’t feel quite so alone. Still she feels on the outside looking in. Bee is stuck in neutral unable to advance like most stories about Changelings I’ve read.To me this was the beginning of the book not the entire book, it was great to see the p.o.v of some of the characters. I think there was more Because change is necessary for growth. The Waters and the Wild was a short and sweet read one can finish this book in one sitting that was one a good point, but the unoriginal plot, and stereo typical characters made this not for me I rated it a 2.5 / 5. As a matter fact when I read the synopsis I wasn’t aware this was a story about changelings in my limited experience it was usually a dark twisted boring read. Still I managed to finish but it didn’t leave me with any impressions so that’s why I gave the Water and the Wild a 2.5 / 5.2.5
