You know, if you've read my blog very long, that fantasy isn't my strongpoint. However, Mimi is my friend and sister-in-Christ, and I really wanted to read her first novel! And WOW! This is a story that draws you in with every page. Even the non-human characters are wonderfully developed and you just can't help but love them! And if you're honest, you can identify with Mellie - at least in some point of her struggle. I know I did! And as she learns what she is meant to know, she grows and changes and becomes someone...else - someone who learns she has much to offer.
The allegory - as I see it anyway - is phenomenally incorporated, and F.A.I.R.I.E.S is something more real than fantasy. I really enjoyed this story a great deal, and am happy to recommend it to others!
