WIP: summary: changeling

October 7th 2010 in changeling, summary, WIP

Cassie’s parents died a year ago, and the loss is still a raw and oozing wound. She misses them, and her uncle and aunts and cousins, and hates her “new” family, her new home, her new town, and her new school. She doesn’t understand why her father’s relatives, who always treated her as one of them, didn’t fight to gain custody of her, and she feels betrayed.

She’s used to a rural environment, running barefoot through long grass, going to school with people whose families have been close for generations. She misses eggs still warm from the hen, tomatoes eaten hot and juicy from the vine, and earth rich zucchini eaten for months after its harvested.

She doesn’t know anyone at school, and her classmates see her as outsider belonging to a weird and kind of creepy family.

When a too-good-looking-to-be-true boy her age transfers to the school and starts paying special attention to her, is it her ticket to acceptance among her peers?
