Review: Stray by Elissa Sussman

Monday, September 22, 2014
Why I chose this book: I hadn’t heard much about this book, but when I stumbled on it on Edelweiss I decided to give it a go. I’m all about stories where girls break out of their sheltered lived and embrace a life of rebellion. Somedays when adulthood gets to me, I long for a bit of magic and rebellion in my own life. Unfortunately, flipping tables and running off to live in the woods doesn’t work as well in real life as it does in books. Le sigh. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Princess Aislynn has long dreamed about attending her Introduction Ball, about dancing with the handsome suitors her adviser has chosen for her, about meeting her true love and starting her happily ever after.
