About the Book



When eleven-year-old Izzy's sister Hen disappears into the woods near their new house, Izzy, aided by a band of outlaw Changelings, must seek her in the land of Faerie.



Book Synopsis



From Newberry Honor winning author Christina Soontornvat comes a magical adventure in which Izzy must rescue her sister from a fairy land as dangerous as it is magical.

All Izzy wants is for something interesting to happen in her sleepy little town. But her wish becomes all too real when a mysterious song floats through the woods and lures her little sister Hen into the forest...where she vanishes. A frantic search leads to a strange hole in the ground that Izzy enters. But on the other side, she discovers that the hole was not a hole, this place is not Earth, and Hen is not lost. She's been stolen away to the land of Faerie, and it's up to Izzy to bring her home.

But inside Faerie, trouble is brewing--and Izzy is in way over her head. A ragtag group of outlaw Changelings offer to help, but she must decide whether a boulder that comes to life, a girl who looks like a ghost, and a boy who is also a stag can help her save Hen before it's too late.

Praise for The Changelings:

"Fresh and imaginative--new inventions on every page. I loved every ingenious twist and turn right up to the wonderfully satisfying ending."--Katherine Catmull, author of The Radiant Road and Summer and Bird.

"The Changelings is charming! Perfect for readers who love stories full of magic, adventure, mystery and fairies, topped off with a satisfying and very happy ending. Soontornvat's debut sparkles and delights!"--Nikki Loftin, author of The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy

Perfect for anyone looking for books:

  • for a special 10 or 11 year old girl or boy.
  • that can be fun homeschool materials.
  • for readers who love a magical adventure!



Review Quotes




"A fantasy adventure with likable characters (and detestable ones), plenty of action, a bit of danger, and a happy ending. Incorporating a few elements of the Pied Piper legend, Soontornvat emphasizes the importance of family, whether it's the one you're born into, the one you find yourself in, or the one you create for yourself" - Booklist

"The plot is fast paced with intervals of vivid description...an engaging story with unusual twists and a thought-provoking conclusion.
" - School Library Connection"

"This well-paced novel full of likable characters will attract fantasy lovers, especially those interested in fairies. Readers will enjoy the balance among action scenes, quieter periods of character interaction, and rich descriptions of Faerie...The concept of the Changelings-and why they're important to keeping Faerie and Earth connected-is explained in bits with an enticing air of mystery that will keep readers engaged, and an additional final surprise puts the remaining pieces in place." - School Library Journal
