Wonderous Strange
By Lesley Livingston

17 year-old Kelley Winslow doesn’t believe in Faeries. Not unless they’re the kind that you find in a theatre, spouting Shakespeare—the kind that Kelley so desperately wishes she could be: onstage, under lights, with a pair of sparkly wings strapped to her shoulders. But as the understudy in a two-bit, hopelessly off-off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, wishing is probably the closest she’s going to get to becoming a Faerie Queen. At least, that’s what she thinks... In this fun, urban fantasy, Kelley's off-stage life suddenly becomes as complicated as one of Shakespeare’s plot twists when a nighttime trip to Central Park holds more than meets the mortal eye.

My Review 

 For an authors first novel I have to say it was pretty good the characters were nicely written and the story line was one that has alot of potential. I can not wait to read the next two books in the series.
With that said I enjoyed this book very much and I am hoping that the story will continue as a very long series of books. I love when Shakespeares' fairies are used in new stories especially Puck and i was hoping for more of him in this story so my fingers are crossed for the books to come (which I'm waiting to come in the mail).This book was an easy read with great flow. I'd give this book 4 stars with alot of potential. and I would recommend it to anyone with an afternoon off who is looking for a good book.
