Three misfit friends find each other. Bee thinks she is a changling; Sarah believes in reincarnation; and Haze thinks he is an alien. The book talks about their friendship, the difficult situations they have at school, and eventually their acceptance of how they are different from other people.
This is a story that shows you all people can have friends and they can support each other as they grow up.
Some of their strange ideas and experiences might scare younger kids and make them have bad dreams.
I picked this book because it looked interesting. After the first chapter I thought it might be a little scary. The girl saw her twin that said "You are me," and she said she wasn't asleep. I've never heard of a doppelganger, so I still think it would be interesting to learn about it. I didn't like the book, because what these kids thought about themselves is weird. I think it was good that they found each other and had friendship.
This is a young adult novel about a teen girl finding her identity.
This is a book for recreational reading. I learned about what a changling and doppelganger are.
