The Girl Who Never Was
by Skylar Dorset
. Selkie feels like something in her life is unexplainably off, and nobody will tell her why. But as soon as she starts asking the right questions, everything she once knew begins to crumble around her.
In this suspenseful fantasy novel
about a girl straddling two worlds, Selkie’s biggest question is finding her
mother. All she knows is that her mom showed up on her father’s couch one day, the
most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Since then, her mother has disappeared
and her dad has been sent to a mental hospital, leaving Selkie’s two aunts to
raise her. But to Selkie, her aunts seem crazy themselves! They don’t want her
to tell anyone her birth date, talk to strangers, or update the unusual décor
of their aging home.
Something is also strange with
Selkie’s more-than-crush, Ben, who moves as if he is floating and hates getting
wet. But his enchanting light-colored eyes and easy laugh pull Selkie in, and
she begins to trust him more than anyone else…which could turn out to be a huge
The chaos begins when Selkie
tells Ben her birthday, which starts the chain reaction that leads Selkie to
the truth about her startling past and frightening future. She is a half-faerie
princess and the fate of the magical Otherworld rests on her shoulders, which
is exactly why her mother wants her dead.
