When I wake up and walk sleepily downstairs, I hear my father singing.

When I wake up and walk sleepily downstairs, I hear my father singing ough the house, following his voice to the kitchen. I find him, sitting at the table with a mug of steaming tea in his hands. When he sees me, his green eyes open wide and he belts out the words to my song: The west wind carried you in, tiny flower, you floated on the breeze, growing up tall and sturdy, among the alder trees.

It's not often you see an elf in the middle of Brooklyn, let alone a tall, blond, gorgeous elf in the middle of one of the most prestigious performing arts high schools in the country. And yet, that's just where Zephyr Addler finds herself: smack dab in the middle of a bustling New York City school, worlds away from the secluded woodland community she knows so well. But Zephyr knows that she has to figure out how to live in the world. And dress in the world. Thanks to a little friendly advice from her new friend Mercedes, Zephyr starts to get the hang of Brooklyn. That is, until Zephyr snags a role in a commercial, beating out the most popular girl in school, Bella Dartagnan. Now with Bella and her friends out to get her, can Zephyr out-maneuver the mean girls (and catch the eye of a certain cute boy) without losing herself?

This book was entertaining to read and is the kind of book that when you start reading it, you don't want to stop reading until you've finished it, especially torward the end.

Fifteen-year-old Zephyr Addler has just moved to Brooklyn with her five siblings, her naturopath mother, and her folk-rock-star father from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Switching from being home schooled in a cottage in the woods to attending a sophisticated arts high school in a big city isn't Zephyr's only culture shock. She's living for the first time among humans.

Zephyr is an elf with the magical ability of casting spells and can potentially live hundreds of years. In addition, like all her fellow elves, Zephyr is a tall, gorgeous, green-eyed blonde who is fit and lean from a vigorous, outdoor lifestyle and a healthy, natural diet. She also shares to a great degree the elvish trait of empathetic kindness.

Zephyr's family plans to be away from Alverland, their secret. elvish home, for only a year while Zephyr's dad is making major strides in his musical career. But the adult elves in their close-knit community--especially Zephyr's grandmother--are very worried about what will happen to the Addler family in an "erdler" (human) city. Zephyr doesn't care about any of that. She's got big plans, and she can't wait to get started on them. She wants to act, sing and, most of all, have a date with a cute erdler boy!

This book is well written, and the story is a comic treat. I enjoyed very much learning about Zephyr's life as an elf. She is immensely likeable, as are her eccentric, lovable family. Zephyr's struggles to fit into the human world are at times funny and at others poignant. I also found it very clever the way the author uses Zephyr's virtues of kindness and innocent naïveté to get Zephyr--and her friends and family--into whacky messes.

Teen girls will gobble up this story! And parents will approve very much of the elvish lifestyle. They don't drink, smoke or engage in uncommitted sex, so the book is G-Rated and could safely be read by girls as young as 11.

A woodsy elf clan from Michigan tries to live amongst "erdlers" (humans) in Brooklyn so Zephyr can attend a performing arts high school.

Zephyr narrates with a voice full of enthusiasm, allowing us to experience a Mean Girls-like high school world through her wide-eyed wonder. I laughed a lot when she and her siblings got into a big spell-casting fight, zapping each other with farting spells and the like.

Most YA is dark (vampires, dystopian), so it was refreshing to find something so whimsical.

I first read this book on my own before gifting it to my nieces, who are 12, 13, and 14, just to know what I was giving them. I swear to you, I could not put this book down. First of all, I love a good story, but if a writer is clumsy and describes too much or is choppy, I can't finish no matter how good the plot is. Heather Swain is EXACTLY OPPOSITE of that and is flawless in her flow. She is funny without trying, and keeps the reading colorful with words that surprise you. Her style is effortless, and reading her book feels like you are thinking to yourself instead of putting effort into getting through a book.

As far as the story goes, Zephyr is the most lovable character ever. She makes you love her without envy, which is hard to find in books for young girls. The "I wish I could be the queen bee" age for girls is a delicate time, so someone like Zephyr-- innocent, honest, and accidentally hilarious-- is the perfect kind of girl for kids like my nieces to admire and emulate. The other characters are spot-on, Ari, Mercedes, Bella, and Zephyr's family. These characters possess a genuine feel that actually teaches more about individuality, acceptance of others, and the imperative skill of learning to read people for who they are.

As an old woman myself (ha ha ha) and not a teen or tween.... I loved Heather Swain's style and the ease with which she made me look at human behavior through the eyes of a very Utopian, innocent version of what a human should be, this beautiful creature Zephyr. Experiencing her first-time look at the modern world of technology-- from cell phones to computers to emails to blogging-- as well as her learning the two-faced, complicated nature of humans (erdlers, as elves call them) actually allowed me to see things her way-- how mean we can be and how reliant we are on our imitation communication with texts and emails. It happened to also be hilarious, which made the book even more fun (so the lessons for kids will be like baking spinach into brownies). :)

The best moral of this story is this: proudly and without exception-- simply be yourself! What better gift can you give to a kid you love, especially one about to enter the cut-throat world of middle school and high school???

My nieces, by the way, ADORED the book and all got the kindle version of book two on their own!!!

This incredibly well-written story was immensely entertaining as well as insightful. Swain accurately captures the spirit and personality of such a wide range of characters - from the unfailingly polite language of sheltered, Laura Ingalls-like girls from the remote countryside to the bitingly sarcasting text-messages sent between ultra-hip, tech-saavy New York teens. Her ability to describe the physiological sensations we all experience - like anger, jealousy, having a crush on someone or a long-awaited first kiss - is unparalleled. The many struggles encountered by the protagonist Zephyr will resonate with anyone and the book may even provide some insight to remedy some of your own life's struggles. It did for me. In one scene where Zephyr's wise, old grandmother asks her some difficult questions, it was as if her grandmother were speaking directly to me, confronting me the very questions I needed to ask myself at the time. And, like Zephyr, I was able to find the answers I needed.
