The Replacement

Also by Brenna Yovanoff. He knows it.

His parents know it. His sister knows it. His friends know it - especially his best friend Roswell, the most loyal friend a person could ever have.

But nobody will say it. Mackie is a Replacement, a fey, a changeling. And changelings don't live long in the human world. But despite Mackie's obvious suffering, the issue is buried, always skirted around and never truly faced. It's the great taboo, the unspoken pact: Gentry's prosperity is maintaned by it, but its children pay the price.

And then another child dies.

But Tate won't keep quiet, won't keep the pact. She knows it wasn't her sister in that coffin and she wants Mackie to help her find the truth. I thoroughly enjoyed The Replacement. Mackie's a tremendously attractive central character.

Because he's a changeling, he feels isolated and under constant pressure and it's made him painfully shy and introspective.

You genuinely feel for him and he speaks for many teenagers, not just supernatural ones, as he deals with insecurity and self-loathing. The first third of the book is all allusion, and there's a real sense of menace and tension as the plot builds up to the supernatural reveals and the journey Mackie must take if he's ever going to find a place in which he belongs.

The scenes with the fey owe more to Tim Burton than they do to many other books in this overheated genre too - they're alluring but horrific, and I thought the underground world was marvellously realised.

I have two moans - neither are about the novel, but both are about the book. The cover blurb gives far too much away and a great deal of the menace and tension of the the first third of the story was diminished by it.

The spoiler is the biggest no-no of all when reviewing books for people who haven't read them yet. Surely, the cover blurb should follow the same rule?

I was peeved. The other is purely subjective, but I much prefer the US cover art.

This is unusual, because cover styles for young adult books are often quite different each side of the pond and I usually think the UK gets the best of the deal. We go arty, they go cool-looking teen.You genuinely feel for him and he speaks for many teenagers, not just supernatural ones, as he deals with insecurity and self-loathing.

With that, he turns on his heels and strides towards the door with those lovely, lean legs of his.

It's getting more and more difficult to avoid the truth From beside me, I hear Scott inhale a sharp breath and watch in silent joy while he nods his head in approval, seemingly intrigued to see what Jimmy will come back with. He is so focused on keeping cover that he barely has time for regular human friendships.

Mackie lives in Gentry, a prosperous but quiet town. I loved that she chose a male central character for this deeply romantic book and I loved the way she blended horror, romance and teen introspection to such striking effect. There's romance and rescue though mercifully no Edward Cullen types to replace the tale's endearing original couple. The other is purely subjective, but I much prefer the US cover art.
