Switched by Amanda Hocking

Switched by Amanda Hocking is the beginning of the story of a girl named Wendy. Wendy has never really felt that she belonged with her family and the fact that her mother tried to kill her on her sixth birthday because she thought she was a monster did not help. When the handsome Finn comes and tells her that she is a trylle that was switched for another child, she finally understands why she never felt like she belonged. A trylle is like a troll but since there is a certain connotation with that word, they have changed the name to trylle. Although she did not want to leave her caring brother and aunt, she was forced to leave them to protect herself from the Vittra that have tried attacking her. When she arrives at the trylle community, she discovers that she is the daughter of the trylle Queen and she is suddenly expected to act as such. However, the hierarchical arrangement of the community does not sit well with her as the fact that she is a princess means that she cannot be with the one person she has fallen in love with, Finn.

This book is the beginning of a trilogy and so it is a book that sets up the situation for the rest of the series. It is mostly about her problems with trying to fit in with the community of the trylle people. Although the idea is good, the execution of this book is a bit lacking. Wendy is obviously falling for Finn from the beginning of the book, but the chemistry between the two is hardly observed by those reading. There is also not much action until the very end when the Vittra attack so it is difficult to really get involved with the story. There is also some language that may not be suitable for younger readers.
