Review: Ruby Blue by Julie Cassar
Ruby Blue by Julie Cassar
Published February 2012
Meet Ruby. She’s your average (somewhat dorky) ice-cream eating, garden-loving teenager, who is constantly being annoyed by her little brother, is best friends with possibly the only Goth kid in town and, oh yeah…she sees fairies.
After Nick Martino (possibly the hottest guy she’s ever known) finally asks her out, she can barely manage a two-word sentence when a bizarre incident strikes their lakeside town.Stumbling bare-foot through some interesting dates, will she ever find love? And what does Ruby do when more strange events continue to occur? Will she keep her gift of Fairy Sight a secret? As an ancient myth unfolds and new mystic fairy tales come to life, Ruby and her menagerie of friends tackle some extraordinary circumstances with her very ordinary abilities in this modern day fairy tale. See what legends come to life in “Ruby Blue,” a young adult fantasy fiction novel and the first installment of the Ruby Blue series
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
I loved this book, can't wait to get started on book two (just waiting for the kindle to charge)
This story is about a average girl named Ruby. Well, she thinks she is average, but she can see fairies. For 12 years she is friends with a brother and sister fairies and they come to the human world to hang out with her and her other friends. They are able to become human for just a little bit.
But one summer things happen and Ruby learns more about her fairy friends. First, Ruby sees something in the lake. Second, a Christmas tree farm catches on fire. Then, after a storm, all the boats in the marina are flipped over. But Anya and Brennan tell Ruby it was really a dragon that escaped from Fey. Oh, and Anya & Brennan are actually fairy royalty!!
This is categorized as YA, but as an adult I loved it. It was cute, funny, and had a little bit of (teen)romance. And my favorite part, Harry Potter references!
I didn't want to put this book down and as soon as my kindle is charged I am reading book 2.
This is more like 4 1/2 stars!
This book is great! I would recommend to teens, YA and adults
