They move is because of her father buying a bookstore, which was always a dream for both of her parents. While she misses being outdoors all the time, she's getting along pretty well at her new school and soon befriends David Lawson , a handsome and sweet boy who understands Laurel and her strict vegan diet.

Things are looking up until a bump between Laurel's shoulders sprouts into a small bud on her back. Hesitant to confide her recent affliction to her parents, Laurel seeks help from David, and together they investigate the strange phenomenon of her "wings" or blossom.

Their only clue is that when she was about three years old, she was found on her parents' doorstep in a basket, with no knowledge of where she came from. It turns out that Laurel is actually a more advanced evolution of a plant; more or less a faerie.

The two soon discover that Laurel's whole body is of plant cells and that she is a plant. On a trip back to the family home, Laurel's world is forever changed when she encounters Tamani de Rhoslyn. Laurel finds herself inexplicably drawn to him, and he provides many of the answers she has been seeking. As a scion, a faerie sent to the humans, she was sent to her parents to inherit their land, which holds something very important to the fae.

The gate to Avalon, which the faeries have protected for ages, is now threatened, and Laurel must help save the faeries' secret, protect her family, sort out her confused feelings for David and Tamani, and figure out her own identity—and her place in both worlds. Wings debuted to positive reviews overall, with comparisons to the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.

Meyer endorsed Pike's work via a cover blurb, which reads, "Aprilynne Pike's Wings is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds. There is, however, a familiar triangle. Fine escapist fare, this neatly mixes the everyday with the otherworldly.

This re-interpretation of the faerie story is one that will captivate readers with its plausibility and imagination. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.

Surrounded by all the detritus of family life with two teenage sons, it is a silent yet resounding reminder of her first husband, Jonathan Zito, who was stabbed to death by a paranoid schizophrenic at Finsbury Park tube station in London, 23 years ago, just months after they were married. The police, but no one else. It took years for people to say they were sorry. Daley, a year-old former architecture student, had a decade-long history of mental illness, during which his family begged for him to be sectioned , warning of their fears that he might harm or even kill someone. The headlines today tell us nothing has changed. An apology is a beginning, but it is not enough. Events reached their dreadful conclusion when Daley stabbed retired solicitor, 79 year-old Donald Lock, 39 times with a sheep-shearing knife in a frenzied assault after a minor car collision last July.
