Review of "Shayla Witherwood: A Half-Faerie Tale" by Tamra Torero

 Shayla Witherwood: A Half-Faerie Tale by Tamra Torero

Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Description:A brief moment of disappointment washed over me as I approached Jace’s lifeless body. Here I was, about to kiss a boy on the lips for the very first time, and he was completely comatose—possibly paralyzed—and would never even know or remember the experience. This was not how I’d envisioned my first kiss—me invisible, him unconscious.
Shayla Witherwood is not exactly normal. First of all, she’s spent her entire life being homeschooled, traveling in an RV around the country with her grandparents. And second, there’s the kind of inescapable fact that her mom was a genuine faerie.
But now that she’s starting a real life in a regular high school, Shayla desperately needs to stay out of trouble in both worlds because even her faerie powers might not be enough to protect her from what’s coming.
In her latest novel, Tamra Torero spins a magical tale filled with laugh-out-loud sarcasm, surprising twists, and spell-binding romance. Perfect for fairytale fans of all ages, this is one story you won’t want to miss!

Colleen's Thoughts: This is an adorable story of a girl who is half-faerie and half human.  She has been raised by her grandparents and has traveled all over the country with them, all the while being home schooled online by a man she has never met.  When her grandpa passes away, she and her grandma stop traveling and she is enrolled in public school.  Along with all the difficulties of being half faerie, now she has to deal with the new experiences of going to school and the social issues involved there.  There are some funny moments, some scary moments, and some delightfully romantic moments.  It is a wholesome and fun read.  There is nothing at all in this book that I would be worried about letting my children read.
